Lyrics

SWSSlyrics.jpg

Things get clear when I feel free
When whatever's next comes easily
When gentle hands give life to me
When your eyes fill with tiny tears

When I'm this still you are my life
When I'm this still you are my life
So at ease in the midnight sky
So at ease in the midnight sky
But my insides will look like war
But my insides will look like war
Paralysed except through my thought

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
Dependent on above
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad

My smile as real as a hyena's
My smile as real as a hyena's
Burns an expressway to my skull
Burns an expressway to my skull
But I'll stick myself together again
Spirit so low that I no longer pretend

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
Dependent on above
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad

So why so sad
You live and you love
So why so sad
Dependent on above
Searching for the dead sea scrolls
So why, so why so sad
So why, so why so sad
So why, so why so sad
So why, so why so sad

Sleeve Quotes

  • "I love the autumn for its sense of melancholy seems to strike my need for sadness. There is poetry in the dying of the year and mystery as well" - Kyffin Williams
