I've Been Watching You and All You Do
There must be some way out of here
All our times have come
I remember hearts that beat
I did my best to notice
Hearts are worn in these dark ages
Time to tell me the truth
Rain turns the sand into mud
I used to rule the world
I am the crisis, I am the bitter end
Why don't you just go away
How have I come to this
Hello I know there's someone out there who can understand
When you came to me, with your bad dreams and your fears
Been up all night staring at you
What ever happened to my part?
I heard there was a secret chord
I'll sing it one last time for you
I'm a soldier on a battlefield
I've been down this road before
You are my sweetest downfall
Hee. I kind of love mine. Shades of bad high school poetry.
Much like attempt_unique, I skipped past non-English songs (lest I end up with I am the crisis / I am the bitter end / sento nell'aria il profumo di te. Which, translated, is actually kind of creepy cool.)
