  • Never took your side
    Never cursed your name
    I keep my lips shut tight
    Until you go oh oh oh
    We've come as far
    As we're ever gonna get
    Until you realize
    That you should go

    I'm in misery where you can seem as old as your omens
    And the mother we share will never keep your proud head from falling
    The way is long but you can make it easy on me
    And the mother we share will never keep our cold hearts from calling

    In the dead of night
    I'm the only one here
    And I will cover you
    Until you go oh oh oh
    And if I told the truth
    I will always be free
    And keep a prize with me
    Until you go oh oh oh

    I'm in misery where you can seem as old as your omens
    And the mother we share will never keep your proud head from falling
    The way is long but you can make it easy on me
    And the mother we share will never keep our cold hearts from calling

    Into the night for once
    We're the only ones left
    I bet you even know,
    Where we could go oh oh oh
    And when it all fucks up
    You put your head in my hands
    It's a souvenir
    For when you go-o-oh

    I'm in misery where you can seem as old as your omens
    And the mother we share will never keep your proud head from falling
    The way is long but you can make it easy on me
    And the mother we share will never keep our cold hearts from calling Writer/s: Iain Andrew Cook, Lauren Eve Mayberry, Martin Clifford Doherty

  • Horse Lover from ScotlandI recognize this song from a show but i can't think Love the songXx
  • Hellz BellzWhat an inspid song. How has this group been signed anywhere? much less had this song to reissue on a future album. Maybe it should have just been pulled and sent to the graveyard. There's a lot of bad songs out there (case in point); it's ok to let them die.
