I'm back to the sea
As the lights become weak
Pull down the blinds that shutter my life for a week
And the faces I see
The friends I don't keep
And the old folks that start dying in their sleep
And I wish I could speak to say something unique
To give you the comfort that you seek

Oh my love
In the ways that you need me I'm coming back but
Oh my love
It's the ways that you need me that make me want to run

And every time that I think that you find that I see
The distance I keep makes a poor judgen' fool out of me
Just like coming around to a part of your town that you've been
But every things changed from the lights to the houses to tree
But the smell is the same and it makes me remember your dreams

Oh my love
Gather your feet and start walking to the sun my love
Kill off your daemons before your heart turns into one

Is the bittersweet, is it pain that you need?
Is the bittersweet, is it pain that you need?
Is the bittersweet, is it pain that you need?
Is the bittersweet, is it pain that you need?
Is the pain that you need?

    Lyric CorrectionMy back to the seat
    As the lights become weak
    I pull down the blinds
    That shutter my mind
    For a week

    The faces I see
    The friends I don' t keep
    And the old folks that
    Start dying' in their sleep

    And I wish I could speak
    To say something unique
    To give you the comfort
    That you seek

    Ooh, my love
    In the ways that you need me I' m coming back
    But ooh, my love
    It' s the ways that you need me that make me want to run

    And every time that I think that you' re fine
    Then I see
    The distance I keep makes a poor judging
    Fool out of me

    It' s like coming around to a part of your town
    That you've been
    But everything's changed

    From the lights to the houses and trees
    But the smell is the same and it makes me
    Remember your dreams

    Ooh, my love
    Gather your feet and start walking to the sun
    My love
    Kill off your demons before your heart turns into one

    Is the bitter sweet?
    Is it pain that you need?
