Shampain

Album: The Family Jewels (2010)
  • Laid dagger dead inside a lonely bed
    Trying to hide the hole inside my head
    Watching the stars slide down to reach the end
    The sleep is not my friend

    Drinking champagne to forget yesterday
    Coz I remember, the way, the way, the way
    It ended that day, the day, the day, the day
    That I walked away, away, away, away

    Drinking champagne, made by the angel
    Who goes by the name of Glittering Gabriel
    Drinking champagne made all the angels
    Tears and pain, but I feel celestial

    Elderly stars slide down the morning sky
    Slipping away to find a place to die
    I wonder when the night will reach it's end
    The sleep is not my friend

    Drinking champagne, meant for a wedding
    Toast to the bride, a fairy tail ending
    Drinking champagne, a bottle to myself
    Savor the taste of fabricated wealth

    Drinking champagne, made by the angel
    Who goes by the name of Glittering Gabriel
    Drinking champagne made all the angels
    Tears and pain, but I feel celestial
    Tears and pain, but I feel celestial
    Tears and pain, but I feel celestial Writer/s: MARINA LAMBRINI DIAMANDIS, PASCAL RICHARD MARCEL GHISLAIN GABRIEL, LIAM HOWE
