Why can't I
Tell it between us
Between us,
Heaven only knows

Well these are the days when
My bodies always dry

Father dear,
Can you tell me
Of daydreams dreamt
The sun has faded

I'm off to set the world aflame
And you're the one
That holds the blame

Sold my shoes for paper bags
Walked the streets
Till my feet turned black

Another waltz, an endless fight
Just keep it all
Inside

Well it's been so long since the day
And nightmares ceased
And all I dream are
Empty rooms filling up with space

Tell me that you'll disappear
And never return

My eye's they are forgiving
But my heart sure needs to learn


Why can't I,
Tell it between us?
Between us, heaven only knows


Well these are the days when
My bodies always
Dry enough to hear you sing
A broken melody or two
A smile cracks as thunder strikes
The earth it shakes, with all it's might
These blue eyes won't forget
Anything you said or how it goes


Why can't I
Tell it between us
Tell it between us
Between us
Heaven only

Why can't I
Tell it between us
Tell it between us
Between us
Heaven only lied...
