American Music Club – In The Shadow Of The Valley lyrics

I gave up my cynicism I gave up my hard shell
I gave up everything that would cause you the least pain
I'm immodest as a child old before it's time
Why should I hide something I've no chance to see
My night was sleepless so all through my day
I took the next shade of weariness down to la

I'm off like a shotgun out of your reach
My self-importance my mind-numbing haze
No I don't want to know about my life
No I don't want to know what I'm thinking or feeling
Ignorance is bliss but babe we won't stay that way
We'll escape heaven somehow down in la

I can make your future easier to predict
Hot as a devil and cold as an addict

People usually just make me tired
The plague of always deserving something better
God save me from the rewards I deserve
The one for giving up hope the on for the love that I serve
If I opened my heart then you'd be washed away
Down the bone-dry rivers that drain la
My nights are all sleepless so all through my day
I like to take shades of weariness all through la
