All my chicken bone dreams,
left on a window sill too long
Easy to pull them apart
Easy to make them come undone

You are untouchable while you sleep
All your dreams come true
Evil runs away in defeat
I lie awake next to you

And if there is no way to love
the one that I love,
then what good is love?
What good is love?

It's your fault if you don't know
when your fifteen minutes expire
The last part of vanity gives out
and there's more ashes than fire

And if it won't set us free,
and if there's nothing above,
well, what good are we?
What good is love?
Well, what good are we?
What good is love?

If they won't set us free,
if there is nothing above,
well, what good are we?
What good is love?
