Lyrics

Every smile has a silver lining
Running from the dark like a forest fire
In your lost eyes every surprise falls
Just like a dying fire
I’ve got nothing on my mind
Except all the things I left behind
Why didn’t you tell this child
that he came here to lose it all?

Seal a kiss upon my lips as blue as the air is
Seal a distance with your blue lips
That’s where my despair is

Bathing in your light
Some people do that best of all
Why didn’t you tell this child
how low he has to fall?

No one wants to play fair in this game
Ever since they saw how easily the storm will win
Ever since they closed their eyes to the thousand faces
A smile like blood will form on your naked skin
Yeah the body, the body or the smile
Stays with you like lightning on a stage
Stays with you forever
and for a while

Lover don’t you ever fear
because I’ll never hurt your gentle mind
I can’t stop staring at your face
It’s a blur until you go by

Bathing in your light
Some people do that best of all
Why didn’t you tell this child
how low he has to fall?
How low
How low

You can never see me
