All the time you felt so free Did you forget how much you once loved me And if you want something back All the things that got cracked When I felt like you lied to me And all the million mistakes And the kicks in the face But i don't want you to die in me So when you say what you want That you need what you got Don't forget to be kind to me I don't want you to die in me
It's awfully considerate of you to think of me here And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear That I'm not here. And I never knew the moon could be so big And I never knew the moon could be so blue And I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes And brought me here instead dressed in red And I'm wondering who could be writing this song. I don't care if the sun don't shine And I don't care if nothing is mine And I don't care if I'm nervous with you I'll do my loving in the winter. And the sea isn't green And I love the queen And what exactly is a dream And what exactly is a joke.
It was in the march of the winter I turned seventeen That I bought those pills I thought I would need And I wrote a letter To my family Said it's not your fault And you've been good to me Just lately I've been feeling Like I don't belong Like the ground's not mine To walk upon And I've heard that music Echo through the house Where my grandmother drank By herself And I sat watching a flower As it was withering I was embarrassed by It's honesty So I'd prefer to be remembered As a smiling face Not this fucking wreck That's taken it's place
So please forgive what I have done No, you can't stay mad at the setting sun We all get tired, I mean, eventually There is nothing left to do but sleep
But spring came bearing sunlight Those persuasive rays So I gave myself A few more days My salvation, it came Quite suddenly When Justin spoke Very plainly He said, "Of course it's your decision But just so you know If you decide to leave Soon I will follow"
I wrote this for a baby Who has yet to be born My brother's first child I hope that womb's not too warm Because it's cold out here And it will be quite a shock To breathe this air To discover loss So I'd like to make some changes Before you arrive So when your new eyes meet mine They won't see no lies
Just love Just love I will be pure No, no, I know I will be pure Like snow Like gold Like snow Like gold
And here I dreamt I was a soldier And I marched the streets of birkenau And I recall in spring The perfume that the air would bring To the indolent town Where the barkers call the moon down The carnival was ringing loudly now And just to lay with you There's nothing that I wouldn't do Save lay my rifle down
And try one, and try two Guess it always comes down to Alright, it's okay, guess it's better to turn this way
And I am nothing of a builder But here I dreamt I was an architect And I built this balustrade To keep you home, to keep you safe From the outside world But the angles and the corners Even though my work is unparalleled They never seemed to meet This structure fell about our feet And we were free to go
And try one, and try two Guess it always comes down to Alright, okay, guess it's better to turn this way
And here in spain I am a spaniard I will be buried with my marionettes Countess and courtesan Have fallen 'neath my tender hand When their husbands were not around But you, my soiled teenage girlfriend Or are you furrowed like a lioness And we are vagabonds We travel without seatbelts on We live this close to death
And try one, and try two Guess it always comes down to Alright, it's okay, guess it's better to turn this But I won, so you lose Guess it always comes down to Alright, it's okay, guess it's better to turn this way
