Lyrics

Romancing the Ruins

Stop trying to romance the ruins
Of our war-torn relationship
You sift through the ashes of the past
And you try and rewrite all the facts
Of our long and twisted years together

Now you try and surface ancient relics
As a monument to our love
But the old dried up rose
That you pressed between two pieces of glass
Has been dead as long as our love

Open wounds they hurt so much
They are so tender to the touch
Why oh why did you have to lie
When you just could have said goodbye

I cannot sing a song
That’s not been swimming around in my head
That doesn’t drench all of my senses
That doesn’t scream from my body and my soul
That doesn’t take its beat from my heart

I gave all myself to you in love
Just like I do when I sing a song
But you left me all alone for so long
And now my songs have all gone silent
And my heart can’t find its way to the beat

Open wounds they hurt so much
They are so tender to the touch
Oh why oh why did you have to lie
When you just could have said goodbye
Oh why oh why oh why did you lie
When you just could have said goodbye
