lyrics

Darling I’ve been trembling from your love all this time
Even when the ashes have faded it’ll be on my mind
I’m not praying for a miracle to get me by
There’s nothing more cruel
When the words are baited like a victimless crime

Am I growing up too fast
Or did I have it easy all this time
Was I paying the cost
Being cast in a role with no reprise

When all my fear surrounds me
Come on cut through the bone so I can see
The weariness I live in
From trying way too hard to make believe

Darling I’ve been trembling from your love all this time
Even when the ashes have faded it’ll be on my mind
I’m not praying for a miracle to get me by
There’s nothing more cruel
When the words are baited like a victimless crime

When cowardice is medicine
Have we been wired to feed off jealousy
Addicted to the turbulence
By my maddest edge you’ll define me

Darling I’ve been trembling from your love all this time
Even when the ashes have faded it’ll be on my mind
I’m not praying for a miracle to get me by
There’s nothing more cruel
When the words are baited like a victimless crime

So this is what we do to the ones we love;
Was it better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission?
Passion is poison, and success
Will take a man where his character cannot sustain him

If true love takes true independence
Then there is no method to this madness
Blind faith and childish reason
When the body cries, the spirit listens

Nightmares and nosebleeds
You’re the actor and the audience
Blow by blow, frame by frame
Silence begets silence
