Lyrics

V1

Like winter’s breath all the shivers come.

Creeping into her oblivion.

She wanted to be confident in life and love.

Believing her patience to be strong enough.

She throws her hair back out of her face

To gaze at the lines that her time has made;

Condemning this reflection she seems sealed in,

And loathing the façade of all the roles she played.

 

CH

I screamed at all the bitter darkness in the world, but the night wind tore my skin.

I try to tell you what I feel when I’m alone, but the feelings always win.

I threw my anger to the bottom of the well, but my wishes don’t make sense.

Everybody looks the same, there’s no distinguishing between my enemies and friends.

 

V2

My expectations weren’t unlike yours, baby.

I see in black and white when it suits me.

Don’t let them tell you that they aren’t as crazy.

They fall apart the same as you and me.

It seems their actions shape all of their belief.

And they swear by a dull imagination.

While conceding to be prisoners of destiny,

They stand for this raw manipulation.

 

CH

I screamed at all the bitter darkness in the world, but the night wind tore my skin.

I try to tell you what I feel when I’m alone, but the feelings always win.

I threw my anger to the bottom of the well, but my wishes don’t make sense.

Everybody looks the same, there’s no distinguishing between my enemies and friends.

 

BR

But I recognize your innocence; you’re still the same to me.

After years of disappointment, we are learning to be free.

May you shine long after we are gone in distant starry skies.

Hold your head up; you’re alive.
