And I shed my soul,
feel it kneeling down...
I'm clutching my faith,
pull it tightly round...
You're moving your mouth
but you don't make a sound...
But I feel the walls slowly tearing down...

Heel to toe takes you from my side...
In and out, every breath divides...
My eyes to your head,
I can't go the distance...
But when you go
you take me in an instant...

But in this life, I'll give it time...
Cause its always pushing up from behind...
It'll be alright, it will be fine...
Cause its nothing more than ordinary life...

And I show you my sins, show me all your scars...
As we settle in, its written in the stars...
Your watery eyes got me send me floating...
And my weak heart is swimming with devotion...

But in this life... I'll give it time...
Cause its always sneaking up from behind...
It'll be alright, it will be fine...
Its nothing more than ordinary life..

    General Commentthis isn't really a Garbage song, although the vocals do sound quite a bit like Shirley Manson, it's actually by Kristen Barry...It's off the Cruel Intentions soundtrack i believe.
