So how's your affair
With the millionaire with silver hair?
Does he care?
Your love affair, I am aware
Is void of love indeed

The greatest weight of all
Towers over your shoulders
While the longest wait of mine
Keeps playing over and over

These are simple times
And now I miss your simple pleasures
A substance state of mind
What I had left to treasure
I know it's been a while
But I swear you wouldn't be so lonely
If only you'd let me in

So look at you now
The spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
I wish you would hang up and turn around
And let me see those eyes
They'd be the same brown eyes

It would make my life to see you turn
I'd finally make my case
You'd, you'd run away and come with me
To destroy the human race

The greatest weight of all
Towers over your shoulders
While the longest wait of mine
Keeps playing over and over

These are simple times
And now I miss your simple pleasures
A substance state of mind
What I had left to treasure
I know it's been a while
But I swear you wouldn't be so lonely
If only you'd let me in

So look at you now
The spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
I wish you would hang up and turn around
And let me see those eyes
They'd be the same brown eyes

You're not here
Every night is a nightmare

So look at you now
The spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
I wish you would hang up and turn around
And let me see those eyes
They'd be the same brown eyes

Just say you're never gonna do it again

    General CommentThe correct lyrics for the EP version are as follows:


    ---


    so how's your affair
    with the millionaire
    with silver hair
    does he care?
    your love affair, i am aware
    is void of love indeed

    the greatest weight of all
    towers over your shoulders
    while the longest wait of mine
    keeps playing over and over

    these are simple times and
    now i miss your simple pleasures
    a substance state of mind:
    what i had left to treasure

    i know it's been a while
    but i swear you wouldn't be so lonely
    if only you'd let me in

    so look at you now
    the spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
    i wish you would hang up and turn around
    and let me see those eyes
    they'd be the same brown eyes

    it would make my life to see you turn
    i'd finally make my case, you'd--
    you'd run away and come with me
    to destroy the human race

    the greatest weight of all
    towers over your shoulders
    while the longest wait of mine
    keeps playing over and over

    these are simple times and
    now i miss your simple pleasures
    a substance state of mind:
    what i had left to treasure

    i know it's been a while
    but i swear you wouldn't be so lonely
    if only you'd let me in

    so look at you now
    the spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
    i wish you would hang up and turn around
    and let me see those eyes
    they'd be the same brown eyes

    you're not here
    every night is a nightmare

    so look at you now
    the spark in your eyes is gone, somehow
    i wish you would hang up and turn around
    and let me see those eyes
    they'd be the same brown eyes

    just say you're never gonna do it again
