Guitar - Arj Chennat

lyrics

Writing this down to put you all to bed
If I push you out from deep beneath my head

There's no such thing
As forever boy don't you see?
Always the tender ones
Who hurl you towards the sun
You're no saint

Memories and fears so loud
I begin to drown
Is this the color of healing?
Reaching out for hair of scarlet brown

Said you'd be there to save me
Couldn't refrain from waiting
We could speak in tongues forever
But you cut mine out, scarlet brown

Demons and angels, a sop's fables
Mystery unstable, feeling's feeling painful

Not what you wanted
Not what you needed
Always the tender ones
Who'll hurl you towards the sun
If you'll listen here
Or just pretend you hear
I'll let you suck me dry
Carve me into hide
Thrive on the pain
You're no saint

Memories and fears so loud
I begin to drown
Is this the color of healing?
Reaching out for hair of scarlet brown

Said you'd be there to save me
Couldn't refrain from waiting
We could speak in tongues forever
But you cut mine out, scarlet brown
