Say farewell and kiss the life goodbye
Cause no one here can tell, they let it pass them by
The stolen tears they cry, they send it
Every wakin' hour that keeps you away
In some other place
Every weepin' flower, to touch your face
Makes you dream, of long forgotten songs
From where you belong.
Night after night when your devils come closer
Shadows appear on the run
Well you hope & you pray you can't wait 'till it's over
Angels of mercy won't come.
Things don't change, but in some other life
It wouldn't be so strange, to question what feels right
There's nothin' black or white
When the heavens fall, the Father and Son And the Holy Ghost, yeah
They're up against the wall, they'll cry the most
You shoot them down, and treasure each new day
Find no other way.
No desert sun burns brighter
No wind could blow as strong
No chains will hold you tighter
Or carry you along.
2 X CHORUS.
