A moth into a butterfly
And a lie
Into the sweetest truth
I'm so afraid of life

I try
To call your name but I'm
Silenced by the fear of dying in your heart once again

I see the seasons changing
And in the heart of this autumn I fall
With the leaves from the trees

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away

I cry
Like God cries the rain
And I'm just one step away from the end of today

I see the reasons changing
And in the warmth of the past I crawl
Scorched by the shame

I play dead
To hide my heart
Until the world gone dark fades away

I stay dead
Until you veil my scars and say goodbye to fate
Before it's too late

    General CommentI highly doubt this is Dido's song.

    General CommentI've seen this on other sites before, but it just doesn't look like it's hers. Is it from the songs she did with her brother's band?

    General CommentNo, it's not.

    Just by reading the lyrics you'd know this couldn't be a song by Dido in a million years.

    This song is by the band HIM. And it's called 'Play Dead'.
