That's the way love dies...

It starts when you're a kid hiding in your room
Trying to forget. Decide and then assume that
Everyone's a threat. Names go in a book.
Fire in the eyes. Flames show in a look.
Burns a hole right through and out the other side.
Days were filled with shame while my mother cried.
I fell into a trap. Been in it ever since.
I've seen a lot of things. Still I'm unconvinced.
But I know the Devil's real.
He's got a pretty voice and plays the pedal steel.
He visits me at night when I'm sleeping like a log.
I find it hard to breathe. Beaten like a dog.
Death comes from above. Nothing underneath.
Another one released. The number of the beast.
Staring at the sun. The need to clear the air.
Everything at once. A little here and there.

Love drained my heart dry. That's the way love dies.
Tears fall from your eyes. That's the way love dies.
That's the way love dies.

Yeah, that's the way it goes. The pounding of the drums.
Waiting for a train - a train that never comes.
Silence of the moon. Violence of the stars.
Pedal to the floor. The science of the heart.
Picking of the flowers. Handling of the snakes.
Breaking of the rules. Gambling. Mistakes.
The ugly head if reared. I wonder who to call.
Nowhere else to turn, fist goes through a wall.
Acting just like kids
Cutest little girl, knife between the ribs.
Wander in the dark. Pacing in a cage
Removal of her beauty, replacing it with rage.
So much on her mind, probably more than most.
Run away from home, turn into a ghost.
Promise that was made that day was such a joke.
The whole thing disappeared in a puff of smoke.

Love drained my heart dry. That's the way love dies.
Tears fall from your eyes. That's the way love dies.
That's the way love dies.

Little here and there. Almost over night.
When you look away. Right before your eyes.
Lying in your bed. When you least expect.
(That's the way love dies)
