they said to run away
if i couldn't face my fears
so i ran away by standing still

(blessed child stop dying
dying won't get you anywhere!)

oh, but it will, it will

and they said
"better to have
loved
and to have
lost
then to have never
loved
at all.

but i'm not stupid

i can hear you whispering
at me in the light
where you blind me
so i can see no more than
your silhouette

and you call at me once more

(come back to us sweet one
the world dawns another day

and we need you)

and you think i give a damn?
i've loved
and i've lost

and it didn't pay me back
at all –

(just left her for dead
like she deserved
)
