Don't waste your lips on words I've heard before
Kiss my tired head.
And each letter written wastes your hand, young man
Come and lead me to your bed
You gave me hope that I'd not lost her
And then thought it rather strange to see me smile-
as I don't do too much smiling these days.

She put on happiness like a loose dress
Over pain I'll never know
"So the peace you had," she says, "I must confess, I'm glad to see it go."
We're two white roses lying frozen just outside his door
I've made you so happy and so sad,
But which should I be more sorry for?


Come kiss my face goodbye, that space below my eye and above my cheek
Cause I'm faint and fading fast, I see a darkness
And I shall be released.
I'll pass like a fever from this body,
And softly slip into his hands
I tried to love you and I failed,
But I have another plan.

My Lord, how long to sing this song?
And my Lord, how muchmore of this pretending to be strong?
When she stands before your throne
Dressed in beauty not her own
All soft and small, you'll hear her call
"you brought me here, now take me home."

    General Commentthis is one of the best songs ive ever heard in my life. and ive heard every song ever. so my opinion is a golden seal of approval in this case. i think it has the power to give you emotion, even if you feel like a big stupid rock like i have lately. can anyone say "repeat button"?

    General Commenti love the emotion in his voice in this song, it's so noticable that it means alot to him, he's not trying to sing it perfectly you can hear almost mistakes in it but it sounds so good that way

    General CommentThis is my favorite Mewithoutyou song. "I don't do to much of smiling, these days." It hits very close to home to the past few relationships I've pursued...
