I broke a promise to myself
And took my heart down off the shelf
And hey, what a very, very fine day
What's the point in a kevlar vest
You put a hole into my chest
And oh, I know, two weeks are impossible

Don't say that you want me
Say that you need me
Let yourself go
Don't try pretending
There is no feeling
Left in your bones

Chase a rabbit in the ground
And wait for hours, no sight or sound
And oh, my soul, looking for an inch of hope
I stretch it lengthwise across the road
From Montreal to Mexico

Don't say that you want me
Say that you need me
Let yourself go
Don't try pretending
There is no feeling
Left in your bones

We are intersecting lines
We crash in flight
Like a rogue machine
You are ultraviolet light
It burns my eyes
And it's all I see

Don't say that you want me
Say that you need me
Let yourself go
Don't try pretending
There is no feeling
Let yourself go

Let yourself go

    General Comment"we are intersected lives
    we crash & fly
    like a war machine??
    you are ultra violet light
    it glares my eyes??
    it's all i see"

    The correct lyric is "like a rogue machine" just like the title of the song. The rest of it looks right to me as best as I can tell.

    Love the Daylights and this is an awesome song.

    General CommentOkay, here are the correct lyrics as they are written in the booklet that comes in the CD:

    I broke a promise to myself
    And took my heart down off the shelf
    And hey, what a very, very fine day
    What's the point in a kevlar vest
    You put a hole into my chest
    And oh, I know, two weeks are impossible

    Don't say that you want me
    Say that you need me
    Let yourself go
    Don't try pretending
    There is no feeling
    Left in your bones

    Chase a rabbit in the ground
    And wait for hours, no sight or sound
    And oh, my soul, looking for an inch of hope
    I stretch it lengthwise across the road
    From Montreal to Mexico
    And wait for hours, no sight or sound

    Don't say that you want me
    Say that you need me
    Let yourself go
    Don't try pretending
    There is no feeling
    Left in your bones

    We are intersecting lines
    We crash in flight
    Like a rogue machine
    You are ultraviolet light
    It burns my eyes
    And it's all I see

    Don't say that you want me
    Say that you need me
    Let yourself go
    Don't try pretending
    There is no feeling
    Let yourself go

    Let yourself go


    Those are the lyrics as written by the Daylights in the album booklet so I assume that they're correct. Overall this is an AMAZING song and I hope that more people will discover this incredible band soon. They really are the best.
