> Back to Discs

heroes & heroin

never try to understand me
expectation makes me old
hide your pennies in the sand
somehow I am supposed to know
the hardest thing to do is let it go

yeah I know we’ve been affected
perfected the power to charm
did we serve to entertain
did we find someone to blame
what I said and what I did
were not the same

I am breathing
I am leaving in the morning
maybe you could think about it
when I’m gone

could we lie behind the fables
of heroes and heroin
the weight here is far too much
to be worth so little
but will she come and stay with me

I am breathing
I am leaving in the morning
maybe you could think about it
when I’m gone

did we serve to entertain
did we find someone to blame
was it something in your head
was it something in your name
give me something I can hold
I can try my best to help you
if you never let me down

never try to understand her
her rose and her ruin
are very unforgiving
but do the things that you think you should
to let you know you’re alive
you are young
you are beautiful

I am breathing
I am leaving in the morning
maybe you could think about it
when I’m gone.
