Well, you don't think that it's working
'Cause you don't think it's sublime
And these windows only hurt you
As you hold me close tonight
I've been dreaming still of wingless birds that circle in the sky
Certain to plummet forth the second they look down from up on high

If I'm relying
On hearing silver bells ring
Then why keep trying
If the angels aren't singing

Hallelujah, I'm gonna go and bring the poison apple to ya
Once you know, it's down you go
If your birds are hell bent
On seeking the heaven sent
Then don't you try to be content
With anything a little less

So, let's carry on
Now that the going's really gone
No more to idealize now that I've realized how I was wrong
And don't bring around that mirror
A would be curse to see the worst
And see it all in me

And all these bruises on my wings
From trying oh so hard to sing the hallelujah

Hallelujah, I'm gonna go and bring the poison apple to ya
Once you know, it's down you go
If your birds are hell bent
On seeking the heaven sent
Then don't you try to be content
With anything a little less

If knowledge of the future was the only reason why
Then your innocence forsook you
When you brought our love to die
I've been dreaming still of wingless birds that circle in the sky

If I'm relying
On hearing silver bells ring
Then why keep trying
'Cause you know they won't sing

I thought I knew ya
But you don't think that we belong together, do ya?
So swing your sack over your shoulder and be gone
Oh, what have I done?
