If this has taught me anything in the past, it's that my friendslist doesn't share much of my interests when it comes to music, but hey, might as well try again.
1. I've seen that life
Touches us with pain,
And we change,
Becoming strangers to our friends.
I just can't get enough.
I'm like an addict coming at you for a little more.
3. And you're full of facts,
But not things that could add up to words.
Think about meaning more as an afterword.
Why was the bench still warm? Who had been there?
5. I wouldn't have made it very far,
So we'd make a good team right away.
I've not made amends for yesterday--
My lip won't get me out of it.
That everything must come apart, it seems.
From the little child to the man of power,
From the beggar to the angel of my dreams.
7. The sky is red, and the sea is blue.
God made the distance between me and you.
Always walking the tightrope, always walking the line,
Placing your head in the lion's jaws.
No reason to care,
My life was all up in air.
9. Turn your face from me,
And I will cover myself with sorrow.
Bring hell down upon me--
I will surrender my heart to sorrow.
As people turn to gods of cruel design.
Is it that they fear the pain of death
Or could it be they fear the joy of life?
And let the air envelope you,
And slow but sure, serenity will come.
Sunny liquid dreams.
Cannot cease for the fear of silent nights.
Oh, how I long for the deep sleep dreaming,
The goddess of imaginary light.
14. The common mistake is to forget.
I always forget I forgot to remember.
It's my common mistake.
15. Between the pen and the paperwork,
There must be passion in the language.
Between the muscle and the brain work,
There must be feeling in the pipeline.
Let me dirty up your mind.
I'll strip away your hard veneer
And see what I can find.
I need to be alone
While I suffer.
Like waking up without a sound.
I map the words out--
Maybe you will say them.
19. As someone sets light to the first fire of autumn,
We settle down to cut ourselves apart.
Cough and twitch from the news on your face
And some foreign candle burning in your eyes.
20. This line is burning,
Turning to ash as it hits the air.
Every step is a day in the week.
It's a Sunday or Monday,
A march over months of the year.
The night would lose all sense of fear.
But why do I need you to love me
When you can't hold what I hold dear?
22. The reeling figures pass on by
Like ghosts in some forgotten play
Beneath the black and empty sky...
23. Maybe you were shot down in pieces,
Maybe I slipped in between,
But we were gonna be the wildest people they ever hoped to see,
Just you and me.
24. I'm sure someone would hear me across the miles
(nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah)
If I'm outta touch or way behind.
25. Steal the jewel, watch it break.
It cuts with an eye I can't escape.
The ruby heals, alone I stand
When I sail my ship
On dry land.
