Cold hands touching my face
Don't hide - the snake can see you
Old friends you might not remember
Fading away from you

The gold heart mountain top queen directory
The gold heart mountain top queen directory

And we looked
And we passed
Through the hallways of shatterproof glass

She runs through the night as if nobody cares
She screams and she cries and ignores all the stares
She wants me to come, but I'm never going there

The gold heart mountain top queen directory
The gold heart mountain top queen directory

    General Commenthmm, TOD is my favorite band, but i also like GBV... a lot! and i think this is an ok cover, nothing incredible, but not bad indeed.

    General CommentIt's so opposite of GBV's... the original is so minimalist (just the guitar at the beginning, rougher-sounding, etc) and ToD's is so orchestral and magnificent. I think GBV's version of the song is more effective but I do like what ToD did.

    General CommentI really wanted to like the original version better but I couldn't get past the vocals on that album at all. Sorry guys. I think this is a good cover though on an otherwise disappointing album.

    General CommentNo offence to all your personal opinions, but the original isn't half what this cover is. The original is so bland. This is so grand and powerful. I love it. And, by the way, this album is amazing, just as Worlds Apart is too. I haven't had a full listen to The Century of Self yet, but what Ive heard is promising. AYWKUBTTOD is amazing, my latest obsession.

    My InterpretationWhen you reach the pinnacle of what you can achieve as a person, you can generally have any lover that you want. So you must be wise to choose wisely.
