  • I'm getting desperate
    Desperate for a revolution
    Some kind of spark
    Some kind of connection
    In these dangerous days
    Come a little bit closer
    I need to understand

    Why we kill the things we love the most
    Kill the things we love
    Kill the things we love the most
    Why we kill the things we love the most
    Kill the things we love
    Kill the things we love the most
    But they don't burn like we do
    They don't burn like we do

    And even though our love is doomed
    And even though we're all messed up
    We're still waiting for tomorrow
    We're still aching for tomorrow
    And even though our love is cruel
    And even though our stars are crossed
    You're the only thing worth fighting for
    You're the only thing worth dying for

    Don't wanna be dead to life
    Don't wanna be dulled to extinction
    Don't wanna be lost in dreams
    Don't wanna be caught sleepwalking
    Maybe I should break the chain
    Maybe I should break the connection
    Such strange little birds
    Devoured by our obsessions

    Can you love me for what I've become
    Love me for what I
    Said that I would not become
    Can you love me for what I've become
    Love me for what I
    Said that I would not become
    'Cause they don't burn like I do
    They don't burn like I do

    And even though your love is cruel
    And even though our stars are crossed
    We're still waiting for tomorrow
    We're still aching for tomorrow
    And even though our love is doomed
    And even though we're all messed up
    You're the only thing worth fighting for
    You're the only thing worth dying for

    And even though our love is doomed
    (Even though our love is doomed)
    You're the only thing worth fighting for
    You're the only thing worth dying for Writer/s: Bryan David Vig, Douglas Elwin Erickson, Shirley Ann Manson, Steve W Marker
