The tide came in, it nearly buried us here -
we saw things like they wouldn't believe.
You hear a lot about stories about love and romance
but I swear nothing quite like you and me.

And every scar sits like a marker,
and every line on the face is a small souvenir
of all the places, be they good or be they bad
that we stopped into on the journey to here.

So maybe I lost my sense of direction
but I'm all right now.
Every man needs a little affection
so I'm all right now.

And there were times when, yeah, all right I'll confess
I did things of which I am not proud.
Everybody walks through the same coloured shit
but it doesn't drag everyone down.

Maybe I was stupid, maybe I was insensitive,
I was all the things I promised that I never would be.
I've seen a lot of foolish behaviour in my time
I tell you they've got nothing on me.

So maybe I lost my sense of direction
but I'm all right now.
Every man needs a little affection
so I'm all right now.
So give me strength, give me something to believe in
and I'm all right now.
Sing along if your heart's finished bleeding
yeah, I'm all right now.

Another evening of sublime self destruction
to the tune of a thousand cigarettes.
Where every nail driven into your spirit
was unable to sink you just yet.

And television is just a week anaesthetic
to numb the senses til you're out like a light.
Like all the drugs that seem to promise you the earth
then they don't keep you warm in the night.

So maybe I lost my sense of direction
but I'm all right now.
Every man needs a little affection
so I'm all right now.
Give me strength, give me something to believe in
So I'm all right now.
Sing along when your heart's finished bleeding
yeah, I'm all right now.

It's like I cannot sleep for dreaming,
this is everything that I ever hoped it possibly be.
A lot of stories will end happily ever after
but I swear nothing's quite like you and me.

    General Commentthe very ending is my favorite. "It's like i cannot sleep for dreaming. This is everything that i ever hoped it possibly be. A lot of stories will end happily ever after But i swear nothing's quite like you and me."

    Beautiful lyrics. Just sent them to my girl for a good wakeup message.
