lyrics

Go Home

I dream i am flying
I see you crying
And crash into pieces in my bed
I stand in the shower
About an hour
Perfecting the things I should have said

Go home
Cut your blessings, count your losses,
Let me guess, you'll bear your cross alone?

The Queen of Denial
Prepares a smile
So maybe the mirror will be kind
The King of Desire
Is breathing fire
Defiling the princes in his mind

Go Home
Close the book, get off the train,
Dislodge the hook that makes your pain a poem

A little bit smarter
I'm not a martyr
I don't want to lose my self again
Composing the breathing
To cool the seething
I'm closing my eyes to count to ten

Go Home
Take a taxi, take a sleigh
Or take a ocean holiday to Rome

Fighting to remember
Why i never could forget you before
I walk with the waves and i close my eyes
And i try and i cry but i don't hear you anymore

I dream i am flying
I see you crying
I drop you a tear and sail away
I fly like a sparrow
A human arrow
Adrift in the dawning light of day

Go Home
