Mission Bells

Album: Last of the Great Pretenders (2013)
  • I had a dream you died
    And I just wanna be with you tonight
    Mission bells were ringing
    Somewhere higher
    I let you get away
    I let you get away

    What kind of man misunderstands
    A woman like you?
    She's her in black and white
    It's 5 am and the phonebook says
    That you're not alone
    In the cold grey morning light
    The only one that's left to trust
    My faithless heart wasted us

    I had a dream you died
    And I just wanna be with you tonight
    Mission bells were ringing
    Somewhere higher
    I let you get away
    I let you get away

    What kind of fool thinks love's a prison
    Or a handicap
    Only says goodbye
    Sinking fast in the rocky waters of alcatraz
    His friends said suicide
    The only one that's left to trust
    My faithless heart wasted us

    I had a dream you died
    And I just wanna be with you tonight
    Mission bells were ringing
    Somewhere higher
    I let you get away
    I let you get away

    I'm the end of a hitchcock movie
    A little dark and a lot confusing
    I'm the last of the worst pretenders
    So lost, so lost in love
    I'm the end of a hitchcock movie
    A little dark and a lot confusing
    I'm the last of the worst pretenders
    So lost, so lost in love

    I had a dream you died
    And I just wanna be with you tonight
    Mission bells were ringing
    Somewhere higher
    I let you get away
    I let you get away
    So lost, so lost, in love
    So lost, so lost, in love Writer/s: MICHAEL VIOLA
