PostSubject: Lyrics ///   Sat Feb 26, 2011 11:12 pm

So what i'm going to do is put all the lyrics on here for everyone.

Each post will be a different EP/Single/Split.

I won't be posting lyrics for certain songs if they are either a cover or is featured on an earlier release (ie - Tracks 3 to 14 on TJoL are made up of Common Grounds, Show of Hands & Shallow Waters), they will be posted on the original release.

Common Grounds 7"
1. Common Grounds
2. Capital Youth

Common Grounds
Community in common grounds
Lost in the midst of an aging crowd
The dream is a dream aloud
Or just a mental illness dreamt of and then sold
And despite which way this conscience sways
I'm finding it hard to stop or switch pace
Community in common grounds
Have you ever stepped inside yourself
To see the truth is a dream aloud
And there is no telling what is wrong with us
And to all that's wrong with us...

Come play
Desperation as it comes in waves
Stay away as if it means everything

Never leave this unaware
We should love at all, the love of life will never dare
The ground it splits right open and I see hell
Crime is heavily on your side
Time to be truly victimized
So never leave this unaware
As in the place we'd never thought we'd leave
Or feel the need to share
And i'll often wonder what you see in me
But anyway, you know the way I feel

Come play
Desperation as it comes in waves
Stay away as if it has everything to do
With anything but you

Community in common grounds


Capital Youth
Standing on a balcony
At one with the concrete beneath me
I know nothing of the night
Blistering under a cruel light
Shone down through cracks in the skyline
As I speak circles to you

Look at all the moral sin
Aren't you sick of taking everything by numbers
Taking everything with force
Look at the way they pushed us in
Tell me you're not sick of your own skin by now
And well, I'm lost for words

Dragging knives from borrowed backs
To see what really holds us back
From truth, trust and respect
Oh underground, keep me from seeing
The sights that set my eyes bleeding
And I owe everything to you

Look at the way they pushed us in
Tell me you're not sick of your own skin by now
And well, now i'm lost for words

And even if we don't pull through
I'll overcome
I'll send my thoughts to you

PostSubject: Sharks/Northern Towns Split 7"   Sat Feb 26, 2011 11:41 pm



Sharks/Northern Towns Split 7"
1. Mirrors Within Mirrors
2. Museums
3. Brassneck (The Wedding Present cover)

Mirrors Within Mirrors
The night is painting the streets colours you don't want to see.
If I close my eyes for one more night, maybe I could have kept it all inside.
Maybe next time I think that I should stay away from the white light that burns down from the hole in the sky

And I'll go to the place where the sun don't mean shit to the ones who've never walked these honest streets.
And i've seen mirrors within mirrors and they don't reflect a single thing anymore.

The night is falling down on; wiping smiles off cold faces
You'll no longer have to eat the dirt from the hand of kind words.

And I'll go to the place where the sun don't mean shit to the ones who've never walked these honest streets.
And i've seen mirrors within mirrors and they don't mean a single thing anymore.



Museums
These years aren't long enough to drag out the past.
These ears aren't strong enough to drag this fucking anchor.
Meanwhile, a train passes through the empty holes of your lungs and fills what's left with smoke and blackened track marks.

So we hide in museums and wait for the sky to fall.

Down the motion and watch it drift into the ocean.
Now the night never ends in this room anymore.
Meanwhile, a thorn drives through the sides of your time and tears straight through these metaphors and into what I really need to say.

So we hide in museums and wait for the sky to fall and finish us all.

Show Of Hands EP
1. Trains
2. It All Relates
3. Three Houses
4. More Blue
5. Glove In Hand


Trains

How pathetic this must sound to a hope of finally getting out
How pathetic this must sound to someone who doesn't even know he's bored of this town
Try to make sense of what happens next and in the meantime I could have stolen a fucking car
Eyes wide on the heavy plight of the city alight. Beam down on the knife that burns bright
Lost all the fire to the church's ill arcade. Don't believe me when I say i'm not afraid
Another night arrives, slice open your eyes. I used to waste my time dreaming in-between lies
How pathetic this must sound to a hope of finally getting out
How pathetic this must sound to someone who doesn't even know he's bored of this town
Try to make sense of what happens next, I'll wait bored on settled ground
Try to make sense of what happens next and in the meantime I could have stolen a fucking car


It All Relates
Thrown into the wind of the drawn out last breath
We don't waste, we charge straight into death with the risk of never taking it to the end
So proffer something new, I'm willing to learn. Never allow yourself to forget to burn, against and through the darkness
We'd steal, but not to break common trade, but for desire to create
To give back what we took in and watch it bloom from the beginning again
I've never liked my voice anyways, and rock 'n' roll needs tragedy
So if these bones collide well at least we tried and besides, I could do with some daylight
Christ we're dangled in the sights of nihilist ways. Exhausted from sleeping for days
The body gives up but the mind remains, it all relates
So proffer something new, I'm willing to burn. Never allow yourself to forget to run, against and through the darkness
And i'm looking at my artificial desire, guaranteed misery and a heart on fire
But down the bittersweet sensibility and see what is left for you and me


Three Houses
Three houses set in stone
I am bored to the fucking bone of everything I once counted on, something I hold close
Maybe kids reap death from hybrids of former evenly spread eyelids, asking cautiously at their predictions
Travels underground make time for other things, including dust settling shackles to be broken free
Travels over time show my head other things. Forgetting dust settling shackles; to be broken free, I'd give my days
And something out of all this mess clears my congested chest of any remedial purpose or perception
And maybe ears go deaf from silence, maybe eyes go blind from staring at the sky too long
(Not as long as it takes to show) But as long as...


More Blue
You were overlooking the seafront, an open bridge. I asked of another in wonder, as a token of guilt
And as we drift across the asphalt, overlapping the lines in the road
I remember a thought in soft focus for the last time, I know... or don't
A mental image, a picture painting for you. A wrath of primary colours, only more blue
A mirror image, a home waiting for you. If only I actually had something to do
I was overlooking the city, a foreign windowsill. I'd never seen our hole from that angle before, but still
We're drifting across the asphalt, overlapping the lines in the road
Remembering thoughts in soft focus, intact with what we know, or don't
After all, it's the least I could do in return for growing up
I think I'd rather a small, white lie, than the crippling truth


Glove In Hand
Stepped outside from feeling ill at ease. Breathed in air wild roses feed at nature's putridity
I can't believe I'm jailed in neighbourhood. I can't believe I lived to stomach it
Bring him in, shield his eyes. Shy away from all street crime
Thought not what was truly mine, four pretty ears and two dull knives
In old, I engage to take on every passing day with true hate
In old, I engage to take on every passing day with true hate
Crawled back home from being stabbed three times. Chose with care exactly where to lay and die
Glove in hand, coat on wall, sadness in the breath of every call
We're taking too long to make this shard of entrust break
In old, I engage to take on every passing day with true hate
In old, I engage to take on every passing day with true hate

Shallow Waters EP

1. Yours To Fear
2. Fallen On Deaf Ears
3. It Threatens
4. Bury Your Youth
5. The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Is Hell


Yours To Fear
Time has struck us down, kept us from interest once more
For the intentions we made, now intentions once pure
Pry your mind from the fall and rise to see again
But still, take your ears, they're only yours to fear
Do with them what you will
I insinuated a purpose I could have kept to myself, before it was too late to start considering anything else


Fallen On Deaf Ears
I look for the sky to save me, it's not for my bleeding eyes to see
I dragged them through the darkness until the sun soaked up the sea
And I am reminded that the things I put myself though are the choices I chose to make
Sirens call from another state of mind
Thirty thousand miles away
And to think that I could overcome the hope within me, within you, within me, within you
And to think that I could have undone this unfocused fear within you, within me
No regrets for the things that never happened
You told us you'd leave forever, no heart of mine is in this place
I'll stay here, watching from my third floor window with an inevitably empty smile stuck on my face


It Threatens
Someone take these eyes
Put them in a box with the rest of what the night has to offer me
Offer me restless waves, for I don't need them here, set them free
I need relief, but skin wrapping knives doesn't appeal to me
This will continue through the darkness
At least that's what it threatens
Besides, what's the sun good for when clocks only make it worse
In a place where time is worthless then I'm looking too deep inside.
And the morning laughs in my face like the pain in my head repeating
The rest won't come but I need it more than anything that will take this off my mind, so when I close my eyes I sleep
Someone take these hands that write these words for any other reason but for the purpose of the song and meaning that is past on through my desperate lungs
I need a release, but the blades in the throat aren't doing me any favours
So save us, and show me another door that isn't the same on the other side
Besides, what are dreams good for when your feet aren't even on the floor
And in a place where time is worthless then I'm looking too deep inside
And if I look to deep inside, I'll just get afraid of what I may never find


Bury Your Youth
Bloodshot eyes from hopeless nights (yeah) I curse the sky for the morning sunrise
She turned and stopped and said to bury your youth in the sand
People worry, someone tell me what the rush is for
I feel anxious just waiting for it to strike again
Same as before, only searching forever more positivity
But I look in the mirror and all I see is a figure looking back at me
Since when did this begin
Now it haunts time and time again
Now all the time that I spent laughing off all the thoughts that came back crawling
Somewhere along the line I must have missed the joke
All my friends, they shadow my lie and yeah, the anxiety pumps through my blood just like it did the very first time
Same as before, only searching forever more positivity
But I look in the mirror and all I see is a figure looking back at me
Do what you can
Can you love
Can you understand possibility
Since when did this end
Now it haunts time and time again


The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Is Hell
There is a light that burns near here
It's laced with hate and fueled with fear
At night it hangs over this town
Millions will choose to ignore the sound
Now the path we choose to take is nothing but the breath I waste
Nothing for us to do but keep on digging this hole for ourselves
Until our very souls will burn in hell
There's a sun that burns far from here
It's taken for granted yet fuels us with fear
All night it betrays this town
Someone, somewhere will let this take them down
And there, they will hear the sound
Now the path we choose to take is nothing but the breath I waste
Nothing for us to do but keep on digging this hole for ourselves
Until our very souls will burn deep beyond the gates of no return[img][/img]

PostSubject: The Joys Of Living 2008-2010   Tue Apr 05, 2011 11:40 am



The Joys Of Living 2008-2010

1. Sweet Harness
2. The Joys Of Living
3. Trains
4. It All Relates
5. Three Houses
6. More Blue
7. Glove In Hand
8. Capital Youth
9. Common Grounds
10. Yours To Fear
11. Fallen On Deaf Ears
12. It Threatens
13. Bury Your Youth
14. The Light at the End of the Tunnel is


Sweet Harness
Burning the bridge at both ends.
I'm drinking out of a glass half full of sweet harness.
Turning the cheek with sick teeth.
Sucking me dry with apathy and sorry, but I can't hear them.
White light mouth pouring with a white heat.
Resembling a white moon silver surfacing a black sea, sailing only me.
Burning up time with nine lives.
I feel obliged to bide and rot and rule.
Keeping the sun down, keeping it cool.
Easy chemistry, only me.
Easy chemistry, lonely me.
Easy chemistry, positively correcting me when all I need is in concrete, crookedly.
Eyes climb up and down you, with the white heat sinking in two.
White eyes when I'm sleeping.
White heat sailing only me.


The Joys Of Living
You took advice from a stranger in a stereo.
You follow your heart, you break a heart, but please don't feel you have to.
Time is ours to kill once we find the joys of living the lives we were born to live in.
A division of the heart and mind.
Left dry of explanation, drifting between distance and a lie.
And all of a sudden you begin to realise that there are often several different angles to certain things in life.
The temptations of another way will be forced upon themselves, they hear out.
The disfigure of a past age will not be tamed, I hear out.
And I chose to deal with it through a self-centred perspective.
It's the easiest way but believe me, it's for the best.
Sometimes I feel I'm not trying hard enough; sometimes I try too hard.
And all of a sudden I begin to realise that all along there was someone in there, someone else I could have saved.

No Gods

1. 'Til The Wonders Rise
2. Arcane Effigies
3. Able Moving Hearts
4. On A Clear Day You Can See Yourself
5. Matthew's Baby
6. Patient Spider
7. Turn To You
8. Dawn Soft Light
9. What Entails?
10. Luck
11. No Gods


'Til The Wonders Rise

Cop soul and a deadpan ear, lo and behold it
Which one do I let in if my guard is constantly lifted?
Only dance to words written in water
I lost you in a silver lake, it's cruel but true

The ties are waiting for you to bind

Drunk with lament, honeybee stay on top of your mind
With the devil come dancing every night 'til the wonders rise
Now I drink the promise of clear water
For I have crawled a hundred miles sidewise

The ties are waiting for you to bind

We're the overestimated underdogs
What you await from us, you can get for yourself


Arcane Effigies

And it's a sweet sickness surfing my soul
I watch the dogs at night from my window
They howl a loss of control, as do my habits
I'm taking extra classes in new politics

Hey rudy rudy, shy cynic to be
The sun is shining down on our arcane effigies

And I'm a cold partial to translocation
I live in a town with no acclamation for community
And hapless sick lay on doorsteps of beauty
And the privileged are unhappy

Hey rudy rudy, shy cynic to be
The sun is shining down on our arcane effigies
Hey rudy rudy, stop shadowing me
The sun us shining down on our arcane effigies


Able Moving Hearts

I broke fall from nothing much at all and tangled with the uninspired
I read pages of past ages and the workings of a lost mind
It’s the roaring of a bright sky that remains behind closed doors
Remember, these things are no ones but yours

Now someone somewhere is quoting Billy for me
But I’ve got taboo boundaries as they be
That make all the things I believed when I was seventeen
Just posters on walls, song lyrics and dreams

It took more than I could ask for and I hung on the edge of disgrace
I gave it back to wherever it came from and left without a face
And the hopelessness it rides us under a dark and helpless cloud
That watches over us so proud

And I lay here gently cut in two
With a crushing apathy against you
And like a heart of gold, I swing from inside busted ribcage bones
All the way home

And so now before I’m broke again, how long will it be
‘Cause I’ve got taboo boundaries as they be
That make all the things I believed when I was seventeen
Just posters on walls, song lyrics and dreams


On A Clear Day You Can See Yourself

On a clear day you can see yourself
In real estate and shop windows
I'm all ears today and besides it's your birthday,
What else can I do
I'm insatiable. Inner-animal
Goddamn it there's no reasonable telling why

I'm the tick tick-tocking on the wall
Red, fine, crooked lines and all
Between the time you bide
And the time you waste

With haste we steady go
Taken for a long bitter joke
I'm melting to the road, the endless kind

We're shrinking our damn guts to save for enough
We'll cheat until we're rich as shit, open up
And tell me tell me what is wrong with a little cheapened sale
A symbol for what I disgust
Now show me what is real


Matthew's Baby

I show my faith in a crowd though I was never lost anyway
I put practice into what it means to free the boat from bay
But I'm patronized by the laughing wasted on another
Because of what does not humour me
is anybody's guess to me

And I don't even want to walk outside
I remember the light at the end of the tunnel if
I stare into the fire

Someday in so many sayings, right around any bend
The queen of deceit has left it all to me, but man I hate
That i'm patronized by the laughing wasted on another
And of what tends to humour me aint only
empty ends to means

And I don't even want to walk outside
I remember the light at the end of the tunnel if
I stare into the fire

And I don't know if I should laugh or cry
I still remember the light at the end of the tunnel
if I stare into the fire


Patient Spider

Oh patient spider, spin a web for me
What right do I have to ruin your home
What right do they have against me

Oh distant mother, what do you ask of me
When you look at me do I mirror your youth
Or do my plans corrupt your sleep

Glad now the days are getting shorter
And that she doesn't bother me no more
I spend nights awake until the sunrise
And that doesn't bother me anymore, not at all
Not at all will these days blend into one another anymore

Oh quiet moonlight, dim the streets for me
So when I walk at night no one notices
My practices of relief

Oh patient spider, we can share my windowsill
What right do I have to ruin your home
What right do I have to kill


Turn To You

Flooded out of a basement home
It's her fifteen years ago, it's me in a couple more
What it means to be true of your essence,
I guess I'll never know
Won't the birds sing the dawn in?

So I turn to you for spiritual leveling
Like an open window open to anything
It's no bullshit of a tactic
It's how long it can keep me distracted
But oh what perfect timing

I'm coming out, could you come pick me up?
If I could drive, Abby you know I would
As there's only so long you can live with
what you only know

So I turn to you for spiritual leveling
Like an open window open to anything
And it's not much, but it's something
And enough to keep me from smoking
But oh what perfect timing

Why did I turn to you for help with burning?


Dawn Soft Light

Time's a tightened tourniquet for bloodless limbs
It's the aching abstinence of success
Life's a pale prejudice for workless wings
Just so happens they're your own

Sister, my camera is lying again
I never hid anything that was worth keeping in
Best friend, how are you and how long's it been?
You could have said anything, but you couldn't keep it in

I'm living with the wrongs and rights
I'm swallowing a lump of pride
Time's a tightened tourniquet for bloodless limbs
It's the aching abstinence

Sister, my camera is lying again
I never hid anything that was worth keeping in
Best friend, how are you and how long's it been?
I hate to say anything, but I cannot keep it in

I'm living with the wrongs and rights
I'm swallowing a lump of pride
My fear is a day gone by
I'm as hopeful as the dawn soft light


What Entails?

What it takes to be a man among the kings
One of many simple pleasures England's offering
I wouldn't take to side inside a lonely cell again
and throw it all away, to throw it all away,
well it must mean something

Beat away the weight in mind so I can walk alright
So I can talk eye to eye alright

As a citizen I've embraced the bill of rights
As a citizen I've wakened inside
I'm taking any offers for this life

Beat away the weight in mind so I can walk alright
So I can talk eye to eye alright
Beat away the weight in mind so I can walk alright
So I can talk eye to eye alright

Our time never waits like how it used to wait
What entails?


Luck

The house tonight is sealed with ice and I can hear the rear window ache
Inside I'm warm and very much alive alike
And it's just nice to know I can write me up a place to go
Where I'm free from the pressure that binds me

Moments pass me like cars, I could care
I'm not moved, I'm sick oh yeah

The house tonight's on loan for all I like
The house that hope has built inside my child mind
I don't want to be confined in a charity of my own worth
Now i've earned more than I'll ever

Moments pass me like cars, I could care
I'm not depressed, I'm sick oh yeah
My logic is backwards, tables turn over night
Tables turn

There is a hole in my life I lost to luck


No Gods

This isn't getting anywhere
I got caught up; lost in a state of mind
Only the night could provide
Is it really worth it
Is it really that much for me to take all
The arrogance that lies deep in my gut

And it's the same song, different timing and melody
I feel burning on my tongue too fucking frequently
And it's all irrelevant and it's all about
Keeping things forward and forward and
Forward until we're bored of it

In these days we wait in turn
I've seen the way you let it burn
It takes all you can fear
And breaks if you come near

So let this be the start of something
Each to an empire we can call our own
Where no gods have known, no gods are known
Where no gods have known, no gods are known

But it's the same song, different timing and melody
I find pouring out of my mouth recently
And it's all i'd like to prevent
And it's all at the back of my head
But we say new blood pumping from
Hearts of stone, glass and coal

Selfhood

1. Selfhood
2. Your Bloody Wings
3. Portland
4. I Won’t Taint
5. The More You Ask Me, The Less I’m Sure
6. Sunday’s Hand
7. 22
8. Pale
9. Gold
10. Room With A Grey View
11. My Wild One


Selfhood

Back on the true path to Selfhood
Now I can wander as I please
Back on the eve of self destruction
All alone now and I can do as I please

I've had a good good hour's sleep
And I feel less than human

Dead set on the notion to
Let what you love kill you
My head enjoys to watch it
Over and over again
Watch it all come to an end

Back on the true path to Selfhood
Now I can get high as I please
Out on the eve of self destruction
All alone now and I can cry as I please

I had a good good fifteen minutes there
And now I'm nothing

But now I can't help thinking it's all for nothing
And when I can't help thinking it's all fucked up
Will I be proud to be back on the true path to Selfhood?

Your Bloody Wings

I'm standing before a sea of blank faces
Tied up to the burning sign of the times

There is no room for you
To spread your bloody wings
And be everything
As you want to be

I'm slipping under a secret society
We all know how it looks
And we all resent what it means

The discourage to compete is real and alleviating
When will your tired heart stop hating
I shudder in your hunger for hollow praise

There's just no room for you
To spread your bloody wings
And be everything
As you want to be
To be as you wish to seem

Portland

You think I must be crazy
Must think that I am obsolete
There is nobody in this van
Who believes we're where we deserve to be
Idle hands and downcast eyes could be
No longer a burden to the family

There is a place I like to keep
As the vanguard of my dreams and dreaming
It is the best I have to give
Now does that sound crazy?
Not to me- my heart
In my heart, I've already left
Wish me luck my friends
All the best

I Won't Taint

There is no grace or poise I've truly known
In childlike wonder or screaming for your life
But there's some in everyone
Who cares to undo every flight the crow has flown

You think we know what we're doing here
You think you know what we're all about
There is no romance to lie or sensationalize
Well I grieve for clipped wings of desire

I won't taint the blood that runs
So thinly in our high wire phase
With memory now a sweet and distant balance
We drank again, we're drunk again

I ain't got anything to say to anyone anymore

The More You Ask Me, The Less I’m Sure

Out of the closet with skeleton's law
It's the more you ask me, the less I'm sure
Straight as an arrow now
I'm a curious cat yet to figure myself out

I still wonder why
I should dance in the dark with the devil
In the pale moonlight

Out of the closet and into the dark
Yes the more you ask me, the less inclined I am to talk
Estranged as the day you were first loved
I'm a closed book not worth reading into

When I die, wish me hell
So I can dance in the dark with devil
In the pale moonlight

Sunday's Hand

Hear the echoes from the drain
The harmony when planes align
And my stars catch fire
So you've got a brand new attitude
You're all brand new

I only want the right one
To slide into action
Bent over on the right one
We're dying to be
Neither burned nor buried

Sunday's hand reaches out like rain
To the sharp touch of the window pane
Across the wall, sinking in my seat
There is only one thing left to do
I'm fully entertained, now I'm coming for you

I only want the right one
To slide into action
As badly as the knife wants
To slide inside

I'll never speak for no one
But the riches of Selfhood
No use trying to impress now
We're dying to be neither burned nor buried
With the blood flowers in the ground

22

Living with the irony of sleeping above a mortuary
And as we lay in bed I can see my breath
Colder than the dead underneath me

Until she goes
Weary arms around guts wrenching
She said that I am full of it
But I'm in love with you much more than me

What is normal anyway?
Is it normal to be glad at all?
So it goes...
Tuck us in and all turn away

Cracks in the windows
And no lease or proof
Call in on your way back home
We're number 22

Pale

As pale as the days were blue
An illness so convincing
How ever did you pull through?
From the medway to my ears
One sonnet so degrading
How ever could I thank you

The room is spiraling
The walls are closing in
The truth's been splattered
Over you with oil paint

As tender as the heart is raw
Raise the bottle to your glass face
And let those spinal cords unwind

The room is spiraling
The dice are tumbling
The extent of my education exceeds
My thoughts and I agree

Nothing is pure in this world
Nowhere will ever feel safe
The axe swings for the noble ones
My dreams trail behind me
With all these things I'm not and can't do

Gold

Roll your sleeves
Everybody leaves on a dare
Their sunken eyes and their deeply hollow stares
It's fear of becoming something that they are not
It's a constraint of my idea

Terrible waste I've made of sarcasm
All clued up down here
Whatever makes it less bitter

Some mental strain at such a callow age
And now my heart cages and vents in leaps and bounds
It's fear of becoming someone lesser
It's a constant weight we do endeavor

Terrible waste I've made of sarcasm
All clued up down here
Whatever makes you feel kinder
Whatever makes it harder to forget
When you're losing control all tied up down here

Maybe it's a curse
I live on the verge of a nervous breakdown for you
I happily immerse, and my intentions stay gold
Just like you

Room With A Grey View

I hate this mystery
The apprehension is killing me
Alone in a crowded room with a grey view
I blurred every little thing that they swore true
I learned nothing of their lessons of fine reality

Baby I'm bored by default
I'm attracted to danger
Running the back stairs through corridors
Or slip through their fingers
I still feel so young
I am still so very young

The stench of stationary
Watch out for the quiet ones at the back
Alone in a darkened room without a clue
I learned every little thing I love from you
And you can learn about how to not be from me

'Cos baby I'm bored by default
I'm attracted to danger
Running the back stairs through corridors
Or slip through their fingers
And while inside I know my hope is disintegrating
I know I am still so very young
But not for long

We're the jealous youth of today
And the future looks strange

My Wild One

Born under a hotel sign
Poured into the foyer like a glass of wine
Add Chinatown, add soaking sheets and longing
Add distance, awful distance

My body's such an anchor
When it's wasted not being beside you
Hold to the old
True love's only for wild hearts

Blood money sweats in my hand
Tattoos on each other for strapped romance
I've waded though an ocean of sand for a grain of doubt
And I'm certain

Do you feel the way I do?
