lyrics

Do you wanna be the animal to take me apart
Break my patience
Corrupt my sacred art?
Do you promise to be with me if I beg and I crawl
In my darkest mood
Through the private wars?
Will you stay…

Even when the drugs have gone?
For it won’t be long
Before I tumble
Turn into the anxious clown
That just just won’t come down

In fire, in whispers
I would die for a million years
I promise to be your rockstar
But then promises don’t mean anything anymore

In the summer of 2005 was the correcting
Of excuses
Of our need to win
To ourselves we lied we could be the new beginning
Digging up treasures
Taking the time to love and to live and to sin
And you stayed…

Even when the drugs were gone
So I sing this song
To you on our island
Of never-ending poetry
It’s just just you and me

In fire, in whispers
I would die for a million years
I promise to be your rockstar
But then rockstars don’t mean anything anymore
