Any way you look you know it's on the level
And I don't care how it appears
I'm not afraid of the world, the flesh or the devil
I'm just afraid of no more tears

Never thought they'd have to teach me how to want
I thought the pain was always clear
I thought I'd burn and scream and never be forgotten
I've lost my way and found my fear

Slash through the canvas and little slits of love shine through
That's what George's tongue said
Well, you can dream if you want but the only thing to wake is you
That's what George's tongue said

I used to hate the way we shouted, fought and bickered
Now I'd be grateful for a fight
You say no words as the TV blue light flickered
And tiny actors sobbed their lines into the night

Any way you look you know it's on the level
And I don't care how it appears
I'm not afraid of the world, the flesh or the devil
I'm just afraid of no more tears
Slash through the canvas and little slits of love shine through
That's what George's tongue said
Well, you can dream if you want but the only thing to wake is you
That's what George's tongue said
Any way you look you know it's on the level
And I don't care how it appears
I'm not afraid of the world, the flesh or the devil
I'm just afraid of no more tears

    General CommentLyrics are actually © Neil Gaiman, but Acacia does a damn great job of bringing the song to life. Her voice is amazing and almost every time I listen to this song, I get shivers.
