lyrics

Must've been a lover in a past life
'cause all my love's gone dry
Will I see angels or devils
on the day that I die?
I've been playing with some hard luck lately
and I don't think it's gonna end
I've been searching for a cure to save me -
something I can apprehend
It seems I've caught myself a sickness
It's like a cancer of the soul
I had the hope of youth behind me
but now I'm growing old

Under a grey sky where the spirits meet
I'll lay my guns down and I'll find my sleep
No need for a grave to mark these bones of mine
Well I don't think I'll be coming home this time
No I don't think I'll be coming home this time

I traveled miles through the darkness
just to find a patch of light
I've just an echo of a heartbeat
but I feel it pounding in the night
I've been feeling apathetic lately;
it's time to catch up with my ghosts
No compass but the stars above me
Am I anywhere close?
It's funny how I miss the water
now that the well has gone dry
I wish I had someone behind me
who shared a teary-eyed goodbye
There was no one

Under a grey sky where the spirits meet
I'll lay my guns down and I'll find my sleep
No need for a grave to mark these bones of mine
Well I don't think I'll be coming home this time
No I don't think I'll be coming home this time

In those arms you hold the light and sound
A million miles to see it's you I've found
If these legs threaten to turn around
I will fall and take up with the ground
And I don't sleep
And I don't sleep
And I don't sleep
And I don't sleep
