Saint Veronika

Album: Billy Talent III (2009)
  • They found an empty bottle on her windowsill
    The day her mother lost her sleeping pills
    She was sick and tired of being invisible
    Hard to see in color when you're miserable

    Veronika, Saint Veronika
    You can't leave this world behind
    So be strong enough to hold onto us
    We're still right here by your side

    No one ever thought that she was capable
    And the damage done is irreversible
    Now she clings to life inside a hospital
    Like she's trapped inside a frozen waterfall
    Always said her life was never meant to be
    Stuck here living someone else's dream
    Well beyond your window there is so much more
    Even every prison has a open door

    Veronika, Saint Veronika
    You can't leave this world behind
    So be strong enough to hold onto us
    It's just not your time to die

    And while the angels sleep
    All of the devils are awake
    Waiting to steal your love
    Right outside of Heaven's gate
    And all the sacred hearts
    Can't numb the feeling from the pain
    Cause when the drugs don't work
    You're gonna curse His holy name
    Damn God, yeah, God, yeah
    Damn God, yeah, God, yeah

    Veronika, Saint Veronika
    You can't leave this world behind
    Oh Veronika, Saint Veronika
    We're still right here by your side
    So be strong enough to hold onto us
    You can't leave this world behind
    Oh Veronika, Saint Veronika
    It's just not your time to die Writer/s: AARON SOLOWONIUK, BEN KOWALEWICZ, IAN D'SA, JON GALLANT
