  • Your broad shoulders, my wet tears
    You're alive and I'm still here
    As some half-human creature thing
    Can you bring life to anything? Ooh
    ("Take this to make you better")
    (Though eventually you'll die)
    If you don't love me, don't tell me
    I've never asked who and I'll never ask why
    ("It's such a shame, she used to be so delightful")
    Well, whose fault is that, if it wasn't Mum and Dad's?
    "Well it must be yours"
    We'll have none of that, no

    Just looking for a protector
    God never reached out in time
    There's love that is a savior
    But that ain't no love of mine
    My love it kills me slowly
    Slowly I could die
    And when she sleeps she hears the blues
    Sees shades of black and white
    (Run, run, run away)
    (Run, run, run away)

    Got to stay cool, you hot, hot head
    Count to a thousand before you sleep in bed
    Read the news, pass the time
    Drink the juice, feeling fine
    Got to stay cool, you hot, hot head
    Count to a thousand before you sleep in bed
    Read the news, pass the time
    Drink the juice, feeling fine
    "At least you're not boring"
    No one ever wants to feel you're this sad, oh

    Just looking for a protector
    God never reached out in time
    There's love that is a savior
    But that ain't no love of mine
    My love it kills me slowly
    Slowly I could die
    And when she sleeps she hears the blues
    And sees shades of black and white

    Just looking for a protector
    God never reached out in time
    There's love that is a savior
    But that ain't no love of mine
    My love it kills me slowly
    Slowly I could die
    And when she sleeps she hears the blues
    And sees shades of black and white Writer/s: Ellen Ciara Rowsell, Joel Donald Scott Amey, Jonathan David Oddie, Theodore Joseph Ellis
