lyrics

And if you didn't want to hold me in the garden of lights, you didn't have to
And if you didn't want to take my hand and show me what's right, why give up that to
See you around

Bitter, twisted, cynical - so sweet
Dream on loverbirds - tweet tweet
Affection's far too personal - don't regret me
Dream on loverboy - come and get me

I have seen darker clouds

Chorus:
And if you'd shut up and listen once in a while,
you might hear what I'm saying
And if you'd hold me in prison, just like a child
you might save me from drowning,
in too deep

Find the perfect words that meet the demand of the emotion that runs through me
I'm commanding your attention - come here
I confuse procrastination with fear

Run me down, and that yellow bastard's catcalling me again...."come play in the town"

Chorus

Won't you come and take my passion?
Will it blow you away?
Will you desecrate my actions while I'm wasting away, singing ahhh!

And if you didn't want to hold me in the garden of lights you didn't have to
And if you didn't want to take my hand and show me what's right, why give up that to see what sins really are
