She would forgive the truth
if you'd lift her with a smile, like you used to do.
She would bring the cuffs to you,
just to make you stay a while as if you wanted to.

So lie down, sleep around
hearts bending now will break
your light shattering my calm
a Life Sentence in your arms.
Breath in, breath out
a touch that suffocates
sirens wailing in alarm
a Life Sentence in your arms.

His arm reads like a prison cell wall
scratching days down as they pass, not recalling them all.
And his thoughts they twist and turn
investing everything in her and not expecting a return.
Will that be good enough for her?

So lie down, sleep around
hearts bending now will break
your light shattering my calm
a Life Sentence in your arms.
Breath in, breath out
a touch that suffocates
sirens wailing in alarm
a Life Sentence in your arms

    General CommentCan't believe nobody's commented on these! Although they're not that well known...anyway. I think this one is about a relationship thats kind of not what it used to be and they've both drifted apart a bit. He maybe slept around: "so lie down, sleep around" and maybe neglected her a bit "like you used to do" but she is much the same in return. "investing everything in her and not expecting a return", and she is "a life sentance in your [his] arms". So what he did is probably a result of her treatment, or vice versa. It's quite melancholy, great tune and voice. Awesome song!
