It's been a long time now And the fire's gone Heaven knows the light's been dim Is holding on ever worth the effort When laying low seems easy? And late at night It's another war Every blow we're more alone There's a light at the door As we fight on the floor The police want more than apologies But each of us ignores them Give it to me straight I know that look in your eyes It says to me that you won't admit it You know we both should be committed But no hospital can keep us separate It's been a long time now And the fire's gone When every tone of voice seems wrong I know we'll hold on Like two frightened wolves Your jaws around my neck It's been a long time now And the fire's gone I can't survive alone There's a light at the door As we fight on the floor The police want more than apologies But each of us ignores them

He says he doesn’t really mind the mess After all “who have I got to impress?” “And who have I got to convince To come over the fence?” Besides he kind of likes it this way “It’s easy I guess when you just let everything lay, And it’s comforting you know to see everything you’ve got When it’s all centralized in one easy spot.” He’s been counting down the days And he’s been counting up the ways To hold his head up Against what some might call adversity, and some might self-pity But he just calls bad luck She says she doesn’t really mind if he talks “I just need someone to hold my hand when I go on my walks” “Besides I really haven’t got that much to say” And she’s been counting down the days And she’s been counting up the ways

At first I thought that I was drowning Then I woke up with tears in my eyes I dreamed my mother died It's all too much To bury in a night I went into her room to claim her things Her image in the mirror, haunting She asked me Did I believe in Heaven? I agreed wholeheartedly But I did not fall to my knees Deep within my soul I know it's just a placebo I never once believed in sickness That's why I worked to wring tears from your eyes I deflected I covered up I pulled the weed But left the root untouched Love has always been a mystery I couldn't understand the need But this is real And I gave you up Now I'm sick as hell Well I can diagnose myself I know I need your drug I'm asking you home I need more than placebos

Your eyes are blue and buried deep Behind the glass and padlocked doors The sky above is white as milk and the ocean breaks against the shore I can’ walk or try to crawl And you can’t climb that vicious wall And the light shines in all pure and clear free to come and to go away from here Your face is bright and close enough To almost touch The light shines in all pure and clear Free to come and to go away from here And I can’t talk or try to breathe And you can’t hear a single sound The light shines in so pure and clear Free to come and to go away from here

I'm sick Unhealthy So happy in my ire So go on Take me Be my little taste of heaven Take my hand Don't you hear me? Lead me on But stay true 'Cause I'm a new one Lay me softly Down in my bed No one has ever known me For as long as you have known me And now we're alone Throw all your fears aside Now the moment's right Cast off all my defenses And be satisfied But if I leave in the morning Remember me as a grain of sand Trickling by the hour It's for my peace of mind No one has ever loved me In the way that you have loved me And now we're alone
6.
Your arms are warm and holding on You look at me and then you’re gone And I will wait here Your eyes are powder blue and cool Can I be the exception to your rule And I will wait here Your hair is delicate and brown Your hair it gently falls around Don’t you know you nearly knock me to the ground? And I will wait here Your lips are hiding things unsaid Your smile is wide the sky is red
7.
You never know you're losing control 'Til you're losing home Always a moment Never shared Always a liar Always a liar The roots have been uprooted Going to find my way The wind's going to take me Away It's hard to be a nervous gun Trigger happy, boom boom Am I a killer? I don't know Three hours Two hours The snow is falling faster Than I can hope to run My footsteps will lead me Away
8.
Go to sleep Go to sleep Lay down your head Lay down your head Close your eyes The moon is high The stars give light Just go to sleep Lay down your head Just close your eyes and go to sleep And rest Go to sleep Turn out the light Say good night Go to sleep Lay down your head Go to sleep The world is weariness
