If I crashed into your market place
with my solitary slur
All the meaning I could not pronounce
you would have to infer
Now I’m leaving you forever
And I’ll make sure not to fly
And if I do it wont be over your sky

There’s a lifetime I would wait for you
if I thought it would be a cure
But as I look inside my crystal ball
I’m never quite that sure
There is no certainty in these games I play
There’s no hope that I can keep
There are only last summers dreams
and they just put me to sleep

Hope and you
And some foolish school of thought
I brought myself into
You and the wicked man who weighs down on my mind
So this is what you’ve done with your time

And every time that I would kill for you
I have to take them back
Cause with you tied to my heart like that
I could have a heart attack

You can blame me for this weakness
And can blame you for my disease
‘Cause you left the door open way too long
and now I’m suffering from the breeze

So say goodbye by to the ties
Where all my passion lies
Say good-bye to the ghosts you call men
I call ghosts
And you can tell them that I was kind
So this is what you’ve done with your time
So this is what you’ve done with your time
So this is what you’ve done with your time
