Woke in a living room of white There’s a voice in your earpiece “You’ll be fine” A reflection in your visor of your eyes And a light blinking wildly for its life I’ve seen visions of your face In the vast moving echelons of space I float above This world and all its love This world and all its love

I woke a rich man Or am I poor? It is a blessing That we woke at all ‘Cos you cannot buy this No my friend Even your heartbeat Is there on the lend It’s just for spending Can’t take it to your grave The fool and his money Will die one day You spent a lifetime On the rocks You moored her heart while You count what you got But I’ve seen fair Yeah I’ve seen true They carry no gold But they’ve got more than you It’s just for spending Can’t take it to your grave The fool and his money Will die one day The fool and his money Will die one day The fool and his money Will die one day The fool and his money Will die one day

When, when you sleep Do you dream, dream about me? Say you do, well that makes two of us. When, when you walk Little footsteps, in the dark Do they lead, you to me? Say they do, say they do, say they do. Gold, gold was strung Between my fingers and thumb You find it hard Tiny armed To hold my frame You, you were there On my bed; bare Folded like time Said you were mine Calling me, calling me, calling me And I swear, you’re my prayer I can’t keep you off my lips In the heartbreak of your melody As you’re singing me softly to sleep In the weaves of your harmony I’m free Took, took a train To the city, in your name Sat by a scene, I’d seen on my screen before Of all the lights That shine in the night None were as bright As seen in your eyes Calling me, calling me, calling me

Oh it’s the kind of pain that makes me Pray for a god Pray for a final place to rest Oh they’re the kind of tears unquenching Rolling from cheeks Choking your speech In front of me Used to think I was immortal Now look at me, look at me, look at me Used to think I was immortal Now look at me, look at me, look at me You thought it would be easy You’re so naive Pulling on sleeves beyond your needs You’re living life down on your knees man But is it enough To gamble on luck to pick you up? Used to think I was immortal Now look at me, look at me, look at me Used to think I was immortal Now look at me, look at me, look at me

It breaks It breaks my, my heart Someone So beautiful one day will die And is it selfish of me to wanna go, and go first? And is it selfish of me to wanna go, and go first? Mother, father It hurts me so One day, one day You’ll be forced to go And I don’t think that I will cope alone I don’t think that I will cope alone Is it selfish of me to wanna go, and go first? Is it selfish of me to wanna go, and go first?

Who wants to live forever? Who wants to watch the birds Leave your life in murmurations Dust blown from the earth Who wants to watch a sunrise Knowing it may never set Who wants to remember Knowing they cannot forget If you’re not afraid to die Oh my love you ain’t living right If you’re not afraid to die Oh my love you ain’t living right You were a real darling I thought it only right To fall down on my bended knee And ask you to be my wife But a life lived alone Is all I’ve ever known Though we shine together We must burn out alone If you’re not afraid to die Oh my love you ain’t living right If you’re not afraid to die Oh my love you ain’t living right I hope it’s me first I hope it’s me I hope it’s me first ‘Cos I couldn’t watch you leave If you’re not afraid to die Oh my love you ain’t living right If you’re not afraid to die Oh my love you ain’t loving right

Read about you in a newspaper today They say they caught your killer But the devil sadly always gets his way Saw a flicker of your face on a TV frame If it wasn’t for the evil then the world wouldn’t remember your name I hope you’re happy now I hope you are Are You got what you wanted somehow How Between a life of love and a life of pain Circumvent the middle, it’ll keep you so safe Please smile, smile for the camera now They know why you’re living But maybe you can show them how I hope you’re happy now I hope you are Are I hope you are I hope you are I hope you are I hope you are Are

Love doesn’t fill your pockets Money doesn’t fill your heart God above Devil below Tell me where do I start? ‘Cos I’ve been trying so hard I’ve been trying so hard Good love don’t come easy Bad luck don’t come hard So love and relate For an easier fate Show them the way to your heart ‘Cos we’re all ships in the dark We’re all ships in the dark Imagine all I could do If I could do all I can Imagine all I could do If I could do all I can I’ve been trying so hard I’ve been trying so hard Imagine all I could do If I could do all I can Imagine all I could do If I could do all I can

You get these lows It’s life I suppose You don’t know La la la la la la how it goes When you’re on your own And then you think Too much about things You can’t change You should know there is another way To make it all okay If your lover, had another Then you wouldn’t have to hurt each other Our life and death will serve itself Our love will kill itself And do you see What others don’t see In their eyes Every single person has their price Ain’t it cruel to be alive? If your lover, had another Then you wouldn’t have to hurt each other Our life and death will serve itself Our love will kill itself

They say the game has changed, my love If it is all the same I’ll keep you this way But I am hopeless with you A willing wave pulled by the moon We’ll stay this way We’ll stay this way Breathe in, breathe out You’ve got nothing to cry about We’ll stay this way We’ll stay this way We’ll stay this way
