Cold Fingers

Hold your lies
Assume your disguise
I still know your eyes

I can’t face
This time or place
I need your cold fingers
I need your control

I want to apologize
For the things I put in your way
I want to put out all the fires
Along the way
I am in you
I feel you go
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Whisper to me all your dreams
Your sacrifices and your screams
Your darkened eyeliner along your face

I don’t know a way to tell you
All the things you want to hear
But I know how to turn you inside out

I can’t play a game that I can’t win
I can’t, I’ve got too much skin inside it
I can’t hold your weight upon my shoulders or my neck
I can’t wait to hold you

Only thinking of you
Only seeing in blue
Only keeping the score
Only asking for more

Only see you're falling to bits
Lonely think you hide
Lonely waiting for a color that I know
Only waiting – wait for it below

I know you, I know you
I know you don’t know me
I feel you, I feel you
I feel that you somehow see

But there’s nowhere I see both of us
There’s no place for me to hide
There’s no end to all this pain and sorrow
There’s no end to love
