I open the news
It's time that we choose
Place a point of view
Your face is pale and it's blue

I tear my eyes loose
From this sleep breaking news
Guess I'm paying my dues
It's just a valid excuse

How our ideas of hell
Just thinking we weren't jealous
Now we're nothing but zealous
To what our bodies now tell us

It's too close I guess
Though we survived this test
It's not on my chest
Never got put to rest

I'm not the one who does the things I know
I preach a lot before I have a go
I know I hurt you as my friend and foe
But I still love you more than you could know

Stuck in my head
My ego is fed
Feels like I'm ahead
Inside I'm just dead

Betrayal at best
I've created this mess
It's about time I confess
He would know more or less

Cause time after time
I leave whatever I find
Stop to apologize
But that's the way of my kind

You're getting so near
That's just what I had feared
It's getting so clear
I'm fully endeared

I'm not the one who does the things I know
I preach a lot before I have a go
I know I hurt you as my friend and foe
But I still love you more than you could know

Guess I'm not
Where I
Want to believe
I am

Guess I'm not
Where I
Want to believe
I am

Guess I'm not
Where I
Want to believe
I am

Guess I'm not
Where I
Want to believe

Raised up in the sky
We breathe it all away
It's up to us as we hide
Well, we were here to stay

I know it seemed right
To choose and take a part
In a world we can buy
Watch it blow itself apart

I know it's too late
To choose the rights and wrongs
I won't go anywhere
I'll be here when you're gone

    General CommentI absolutely love this song (my favorite non-the dodos song haha), though i always thought the 1st verse was different.. I wrote out the lyrics (my interpretation) on my computer some years back, and was going to add it here, but you beat me to it.. here are some changes i had on my version of the lyrics though they could be wrong, after listening to the song again i realize alot of my lyrics were wrong compare to yours.. though i still think there some changes your version needs to make.. though maybe not this is what i hear though:

    (1st verse)
    Open the noose
    It's time that we choose
    Place a point of view
    Your face is pale and it's blue

    ...
    ...

    Betrayal at best
    I've created this mess
    It's bout time i confess
    He*** would know more or less

    ...
    ...

    I know it seemed right
    To choose and take a part
    In a world we can buy
    Watch it** blow itself*** apart

    I know it's too late
    To choose the rights*** and wrongs***
    I won't go anywhere
    I'll be here when you're gone

    the stars are where we differ, and our 1st verses are completely different.. give it listen see what you hear
