Trees fading down the parkway
Both windows wide open
Watching fireworks in the sky

Open road, pulls me closer
Like I’m the only special one
Soft vibrato takes me home

Like a small addiction
Soothing my tender nerves
There comes a time when I cannot be alone anymore

My catalyst for agony
Comes in shapes on a wall
Cast by passing headlights
I watch the shadows fall

Tearing at my skin again I wanna
Give strength to all who come to me
With what word may I try to appease
Resolution nigh, where comes her reply?

Consecration’s afforded me no deceit
Burning images into my skin, I believe
There’s a whisper hanging in the air
And just maybe, just maybe it’s meant for me

You hold me to the light
Just like a child
You are the only one
Above the scorn

There is no trust
No loyalty
My love is dying
I watch it pass

There is no trust
No more loyalty
My love is dying
I watched it pass

She’s much too beautiful for me
(Perfect girls are traps-in-waiting)
She’s much too beautiful for me
(I will not fight for her)
She’s much too beautiful for me
(This is the end of all sorrow)
She’s much too beautiful for me
