Lyrics

I know I'll never be a rich man
I know my life will never amount to much
But you never promised me salvation
Maybe that's why I love you so much
There's really nothing wrong with people
I just can't stand to look into their eyes
and see love as something they've invented
when they discovered that it couldn't be prevented

Hold me if you don't have anyone
Warm me, the world is frozen
Hold me if you don't have anyone
Warm me, the world is frozen

Look and see how the sirens and the signs
all correspond when you're on the way to the emergency room
and they're giving you all this great sedation
but really you just want someone

Hold me if you don't have anyone
Warm me, the world is frozen
Hold me if you don't have anyone
Warm me, the world is frozen

People use their goodness as some kind of excuse
for never really loving anyone
And the road to hell is not some special abuse,
it's really, really never ever, ever loving anyone

Ask me why do I always turn away from every smiling face
I just want to be a light to light you from inside
and a smile is so easily replaced

Hold me if you don't have anyone
Warm me, the world is frozen
Hold me if you don't have anyone Warm me, the world is frozen
