lyrics

Bleeding out the light
From the corners of your soul
Truth is on your side
But it's buried far below

Colour's in your eyes
And it's raining back at home
Needle's in the fire and it's closer to the bone

And all along you had to be
Always just beyond my reach
You wore it well
So nervously complete

And all alone you had to go
The way that angels have to go
I'd trade this hell
For the ground beneath your feet
The ground beneath your feet

Fading like your sin
And you're down beneath the waves
The ritual begins
Your identity just fades

I could keep you warm Angel
I could keep you safe
Open up your eyes Angel
Get out of that grave

And all along you had to be
Always just beyond my reach
You wore it well
So nervously complete

And all alone you had to go
The way that angels have to go
I'd trade this hell
For the ground beneath your feet
The ground beneath your feet

What's wrong with forever
What's wrong with forever
The memory of life can leave you cold
The memory of life can leave you cold
It leaves me cold

And all along you had to be
Always just beyond my reach
You wore it well
So nervously complete

And all alone you had to go
The way that angels have to go
I'd trade this hell
For the ground beneath your feet
The ground beneath your feet
