Dead for Love

Album: Anthems for Doomed Youth (2015)
  • The only rule, to stay alive
    Just keep breathing, you'll be fine
    You know she's pulling up outside
    The car lights crawl across the curtain
    So put the gun back on the wall
    Take the suitcase from the wardrobe
    There's a dead man on the floor
    He's not going anywhere
    You're moving to the door
    And everything he ever did
    He only ever did for love
    And everything he ever said
    Was only ever said for love
    And now, now he lies dead
    He's dead for love
    His mind's at ease, he sleeps in peace
    Your reflection in her eyes
    You just don't recognise
    And soon you'll realize
    This guy's not going anywhere
    Now he's done with you once more
    Race with the shadows to the door
    A guy like this needs to be sure
    No one was there was there when the devil rode out before
    And everything he ever did
    He only ever did for love
    And everything he ever said
    Was only ever said for love
    And now, now, he lies dead
    Oh, he's dead for love
    His mind's at ease, he sleeps in peace
    In English shadows you will walk tall
    And there you'll stay until you fall
    And when the final hour arrives
    It's only lovers left alive
    Wretched souls and gangsters' molls
    Beyond the valley of the dolls
    The story they will never tell
    Because their lips are sealed
    And everything you ever did
    You only ever did for love
    And everything you ever said
    You only ever said for love
    And now, now he lies dead
    Oh he's dead for love
    Your mind's at ease, you sleep in peace
    And everything you ever did
    You only ever did for love
    And everything you ever said
    You only ever said for love
    And now, now he lies dead
    Oh he's dead for love
    Your mind's at ease, you sleep in peace Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
