Tailored sheets, to fix this dirty bed,
for once the dirt won't come all off
I can’t be pushed aside.

Wind is blowing thru closed doors
With shadows dancing in the hall
Now hit the floor, crawl to the side,
We've all made better moves despite the slowing of our feet

For once
Lets leave the dreaming to someone else,
Our time has slipped away,
We’re sinking faster, faster no more play
Get ready for the catch,
I'm at the next step, waiting for our year

And all at once it leaves you breathless,
With next to nothing, but open hands.

Reach out, hold on tight,
I know it hurts but keep trying,
And with your luck,
This won't be over quick
Out of the blue it strikes you
What’s left to catch but the fear of letting go?

And bite down,
The stress get harder now,
The mood is let down,
Let it play for the last time,
take this last second to know who's walking out.

For once don’t be so weak,
Back up the feelings that you claim now,
Fall deeper into a world, that you can’t explain.

For once don’t be so weak,
I see the mistake that is you,
don't try another line, I know the truth

And let hate save you when nothing else will,
Oh, well let it save you when nothing else will.

Let it save you.

The mood is let down,
Let it play for the last time,
take this last second to know who's walking out

We know who does it best,
Wind is blowing thru closed doors
With shadows dancing in the hall
Now hit the floor, crawl to the side,
We've all made better moves despite the slowing of our feet

Let hate save you when nothing else will.


I know the truth, it won’t save you.

    General CommentOut of the book.


    Tailored sheets, to fit this dirty bed,
    for once the dirt won't come all off
    I can’t be pushed aside.

    Wind is blowing thru closed doors
    With shadows dancing in the hall
    Now hit the floor, crawl to the side,
    We've all made better moves despite our slowing feet

    For Once, lets leave the dreaming to someone else,
    Our time has slipped away,
    We’re sinking faster, faster no more play,
    Set aside for the catch,
    I'm at the next step, waiting for our year

    And all at once it leaves you breathless,
    With next to nothing, but open hands.

    Reach out, hold on tight,
    I know it hurts but keep trying,
    And with your luck,
    This won't be over quick
    Out of the blue it strikes you
    What’s left to catch but the fear of letting go?

    And bite down,

    Fall deeper into a world, that you can’t explain.

    don't try another line, I know the truth

    Let hate save you, when, nothing else will,
    Oh, let it save you, when, nothing else will.
    Let it save you.

    The mood is let down,
    Let it play for the last time,
    take this last second to know who's walking out

    We know who does it best,

    General Commentsome of the wording/words are going to be slightly different than whats in the book. what was written for the song and what is tracked are sometimes different due to a producer's thoughts on what fits better etc...

    just maybe an explanation for the differences

    General CommentTailored sheets, to fix this dirty bed,
    For once this ___,
    I can’t be pushed aside.

    When the glowing ?took us? towards the shadows,
    Dancing in ?a row?,
    Now hit the floor, crawl to the side,
    ?Withholding? better moves, despite the slowing of our feet.

    Next, let’s leave the feeling to someone else,
    Our time has slipped away,
    We’re sinking faster, faster __,
    Get ready for the catch,
    ???

    And all at once it leaves you breathless,
    With next to nothing, but I’ll be there.

    Reach out, hold on tight,
    I know it hurts but keep trying,
    And with your luck,
    ?This will be over quick?
    ???
    What’s left to catch but the fear of letting go?

    And bite down,
    The stress get harder now,
    The mood is let down,
    Let it play for the last time,
    __ this last second ___.

    For once don’t be so weak,
    Back up the feelings that you claim now,
    Fall deeper into a world, that you can’t explain.
    For once don’t be so weak,
    I see the mistake that is you,
    Don’t cry, I never lied, I never ___

    Let it save you, when, nothing else will,
    Oh, let it save you, when, nothing else will.
    Let it save you.

    The mood is let down,
    Let it play for the last time,
    ?Save? this last second, to know.

    We know who does it best,
    When this glowing ?took us? towards the shadows,
    Dancing in ?a row?
    Not hit the floor, crawl to the side,
    ?Withholding? better moves, despite the slowing of our feet,
    Let it save you when nothing else will.

    I know the truth, it won’t save you.

    So yeah, that's what I've got. Very likely there are mistakes. But yeah.

    General Commentafter listening to the songs

    at the beginning you can CLEARLY hear the s-noise when he says "fit" so i still think its fix, regardless of the book

    and on "Set aside for the catch"

    you can also easily hear the g and not s, and i can't hear aside at all i clearly hear ready

    looks like their wrong on their own lyrics :(

    and then when it says "despite our slowing feet"

    he says alot more then that, so i think its "despite the slowing of our feet"
