lyrics

You were sitting in the dark
There’s a ticking coming from behind
It’s granted that at nine the clock is always on time
No matter if you decide to run and go it’s hard to see
it’s a bloody lie that hold your fantasy.

Then as the darkness can be black
Can the sadness seem as sad as you?

I don’t want a lie to keep you going
That you had the day before
And are you gonna hide to keep you from love
Waiting for her, you don’t have to stay
Waiting for her, waiting for her, waiting till she came home

And again you try to pick your mind
But pieces that you find can hold sway over you
Clever words beside the bed, are they calling or not?
Or changing your name just by mistake
There’s a lot of dirty secrets that is better not to name…but

Then as the darkness can be black
Can the madness seem as sad as you?

I don’t want a lie to keep you going
That you had the day before
And are you gonna hide to keep you from love
Waiting for her, you don’t have to stay

Then as the sadness can be sad
Can the madness seem as mad as you?

I don’t want a lie to keep you going
That you had the day before
And are you gonna smile to keep you from love
Waiting for her, you don’t have to stay
Waiting for her, waiting for her, waiting for her
