lyrics

I awoke in a shameful way
On a Summer’s day
That had betrayed the rain
I could feel you, breathe you
Holding me tight
Stealing my light

I don’t love you but I’m lonely
You go to church but you’re not holy
Oh the habits of men
I don’t need you but I know you
And it is all the same
No fire, no flame

We move on in a loveless haze
All the words you say
All this pointless praise
Makes me crave your validation,
Our fear of isolation
Is closing us in

I don’t love you but I’m lonely
You go to church but you’re not holy
Oh the habits of men
I don’t need you but I know you
And it is all the same
No fire, no flame

We stroke the fear and hope for rest
We wish the wild away
But it won’t go
She‘s found her home
In a city full of birdless skies
We miss the sound
We full it with our cries
We dream of being alive

I don’t love you but I’m lonely
You go to church but you’re not holy
Oh the habits of men
I don’t need you but I know you
And it is all the same
No fire, no flame

In this game, the circle remains
And so we play
Though we’d really like to get it away
It won’t be today
We’re not that brave
