If you ask the shadows what they think about the sun, they wouldn't be able to live without it
And if you ask me what I think about your smile, I'd say I wouldn't be able to live without it

She was lieing in bed he wrote a story all over her body
And the words faded into her skin
Came out of her mouth as a prayer for better days
and better shows and better characters to wear
Where I was just a teen, drunk in the park
_______ my long brown leather coat
Trying to find a good explanation for my red ripped shirt

I heard my heels on the sidewalk,
My feet making way home to you
And every step had in it ________
Your eyes like swords
My heart like blades
And my throat...
But lover, guess what?

If you ask the shadows what they think about the sun, they wouldn't be able to live without it
And if you ask me what I think about your smile, I'd say I wouldn't be able to live without it

And the people of the early morning hours,
They could see inside me
They'd been around, they know my kind
They know that underneath
My coat and my ____ looking skin
I was hiding something

And twenty years have passed
________
Shadows in the morning took over a long ago
Only a virgin light and cool thin air
After the nightmare

If you ask the shadows what they think about the sun, they wouldn't be able to live without it
And if you ask me what I think about your smile, I'd say I wouldn't be able to live without it

And I don't get how these tears are supposed to be salty,
Tasted so sweet in her mouth
And Your tongue still teasing and seeking and _______

    Lyric CorrectionIf you ask the shadows what they think about the sun, they wouldn't be able to live without it
    And if you ask me what I think about your smile, I'd say I wouldn't be able to live without it

    She was lying in bed he wrote a story all over her body
    And the words faded into her skin
    Came out of her mouth as a prayer for better days
    and better shows and better characters to wear
    Where was I?
    I was just sitting drunk in the park
    Tucked in my long brown leather coat
    Trying to find a good explanation for my red ripped shirt

    I heard my heels on the sidewalk, My feet making their way home to you
    And every step burned and every though hurt Your eyes like swords in my heart like blades
    And my throat... But lover, guess what?

    If you ask the shadows what they think about the sun, they wouldn't be able to live without it
    And if you ask me what I think about your smile, I'd say I wouldn't be able to live without it

    And the people of the early morning hours, They could see inside me
    They'd been around, they know my kind They know that underneath
    My coat and my dead pale looking skin I was hiding something

    They walked away as I passed through them like a ghost There are no shows in the morning
    To accompany a lonely girl in her walk Only a virgin light and cool thin air
    After the nightmare

    If you ask the shadows what they think about the sun, they wouldn't be able to live without it
    And if you ask me what I think about your smile, I'd say I wouldn't be able to live without it

    And I don't get how these tears are supposed to be salty, Tasted so sweet in her mouth
    And your tongue still teasing and deciving me And I...
    Well I like it so much
