stupid


night lift up the shades
let in the brilliant light of morning
but steady me now
for i am weak and starving for mercy
sleep has left me alone
to carry the weight of unravelling where we went wrong
it's all i can do to hang on,
to keep me from falling
into old familiar shoes

how stupid could i be
a simpleton could see
that you're no good for me
but you're the only one i see

love has made me a fool
set me on fire and watched as i floundered
unable to speak
except to cry out and wait for your answer
but you come around in your time
speaking of fabulous places
create an oasis
that dries up as soon as you're gone
you leave me here burning
in this desert without you

everything changes
everything falls apart
i can't stand to feel myself losing control
in the deep of my senses i know

building a mystery


you come out at night
that's when the energy comes
and the dark side's light
and the vampires roam
you strut your rasta wear
and your suicide poem
and a cross from a faith
that died before jesus came
you're building a mystery

you live in a church
where you sleep with voodoo dolls
and you won't give up the search
for the ghosts in the halls
you wear sandals in the snow
and a smile that won't wash away
can you look out the window
without your shadow getting in the way
you're so beautiful
with an edge and a charm
but so careful
when i'm in your arms

'cause you're working
building a mystery
holding on and holding it in
yeah you're working
building a mystery
and choosing so carefully

you woke up screaming aloud
a prayer from your secret god
you feed off our fears
and hold back your tears oh

give us a tantrum
and a know it all grin
just when we need one
when the evening's thin

oh you're a beautiful
a beautiful fucked up man
you're setting up your
razor wire shrine

i will remember you


i will remember you
will you remember me?
don't let your life pass you by
weep not for the memories

remember all the good times that we had
we let them slip away from us when things got bad
clearly i first saw you, smiling in the sun
i want to feel your warmth upon me, i want to be the one

i will remember you
will you remember me?
don't let your life pass you by
weep not for the memories

i'm so tired,i can't sleep
standin' on the edge of something much too deep
it's funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
we are screaming inside, we can't be heard

i will remember you
will you remember me?
don't let your life pass you by
weep not for the memories

i'm so afraid to love you, but more afraid to lose
clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose
once there was a darkness, deep and endless night
gave me everything he had, oh he gave me life

and i will remember you
will you remember me?
don't let your life pass you by
weep not for the memories

i will remember you
will you remember me?
don't let your life pass you by
weep not for the memories
weep not for the memories

angel


spend all your time waiting
for that second chance
for a break that would make it okay
there's always some reason
to feel not good enough
and it's hard at the end of the day
i need some distraction
or a beautiful release
memory seeps from my veins
it may be empty
or weightless and maybe
we'll find some peace tonight

you're in the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

so tired of the straight line
where everywhere you turn
there's vultures and thieves at your back
the storm keeps on twisting
keep on building the lies
that you make up for all that you lack
it don't make no difference
escape one last time
it's easier to believe
in this sweet madness oh
this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

in the arms of the angel
fly away from here
from this dark cold hotel room
and the endlessness that you fear
you are pulled from the wreckage
of your silent reverie
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here
you're in the arms of the angel
may you find some comfort here

fallen


heaven bend to take my hand
and lead me through the fire
be the long awaited answer
to a long and painful fight
truth be told i tried my best
but somewhere long the way
i got caught up in all there was to offer
but the cost was so much more than i could bear

though i've tried i've fallen
i have sunk so low
i messed up
better i should know
so don't come round here and
tell me i told you so

we all begin with good intent
love was raw and young
we believed that we could change ourselves
the past can be undone
but we carry on our back, the burden
time always reveals
in the lonely light of morning
in the wound that would not heal
it's the bitter taste of losing everything
that i've held so dear...

i've fallen
i have sunk so low
i messed up
better i should know
so don't come round here and
tell me i told you so

heaven bend to take my hand
i've nowhere left to turn
i'm lost to those i thought were friends
to everyone i know
oh they turn their heads embarrassed
pretend that they don't see
but it's one missed step you'll slip before you know it
and there doesn't seem a way to be redeemed

though i've tried i've fallen
i have sunk so low
i messed up
better i should know
so don't come round here and
tell me i told you so
i messed up
better i should know
so don't come round here and
tell me i told you so
