lyrics

Back behind the curtain
Lies a terrible mess
From a life I was certain
I’d never have to confess

Till you came through my window
And you woke up the dead
With the perfume and moonlight
That you dragged through my bed

And if you only knew
What life was like before you
You would break down and cry
And that’s why I intend
To spend my days around you
Till the day that I die

Cause I was torn out and broken
And left on the shelf
Tired of breathing
Tired of myself

And if you only knew
What life was like before you
You would break down and cry
And that’s why I intend
To spend my days around you
Till the day that I die

That’s why no one comes before you
That why no one comes close
I’d do anything for you
For you and you alone

Cause if you only knew
What life was like before you
You would break down and cry
And that’s why I intend
To spend my days around you
Till the day that I die
