Kate wasn't in to moderation
Thats what led to her frustration
And the state of her crumbling heart
Says I'm not a girl for temperance
Though I know its at my hearts expense
But a downward spiral has to have a rock bottom

She paints the walls blue and green
Singing about her lovers and dreams
And explains her helpless desperation
Take off your shoes
Unravel your blues
This place is full of beggars and choosers
But the consequence of her liberty was bad

My hearts wants to go one way
My mind don't agree
Cause they,
They have fallen out recently

Know thy self
She said as she guided me round the land of the dead
Introducing her friends stuck in the same mess
Ships might be built for sailing my love
And easels made for painting
But you ain't no sailor and I'll never be camera shy

My hearts wants to go one way
My mind don't agree
Cause they,
They have fallen out recently

She said
Will I praise again?
Oh will I praise again?

My hearts wants to go one way
My mind don't agree
They,
They have fallen out recently

She said
Oh will I praise again?
Oh will I praise again?

Will I,
Will I sing again?
Will I praise again?

    General Comment"I'll never be camera shy" ????

    I'm not sure but I don't think "I'll never be camera shy" is what he actually says... Unfortunately he it's a bit unclear. Does anybody know?

    Lyric Correction"And explains her helpless desperation" second verse, should be "hopeless" not "helpless"

    General CommentIt's song from quite a while back, so he probably tinkered with it a lot. This version definitely says "I'll never be camera shy." - youtube.com/…
