I lay it down for you, in black and blue,
Life here is getting mad without you,
The sun is hot and I can feel your heart beating
Like a cold steel drum of the winter
Overall, overall the land that spreads across there
Seasons and I'm still waiting for you...
Bring me back to love's surrender.

[Refrain (x2)]
True desire, through the fire,
It all came right down to the wire
The way we came together and the way we split,
Man, we've been through some crazy shit...

Baby I know, you don't need me holding
Back my heart now,
I've got the feeling that it's getting stronger anyhow,
Won't you come along to the places that I wander,
I've got to get back, we can learn from each other,

[Refrain (x2)]
True desire, through the fire,
It all came right down to the wire
The way we came together and the way we split,
Man, we've been through some crazy shit...

Bring me back... Bring me back...
Bring me back... Bring me back... To love's surrender.

Who could have guessed it would ever go
As deep as this?
Singing without voice, amnesia and sleeplessness,
Hunter goes quietly, distance seduced you,
Windows that don't open, it's hard to get used to,
The other shoe drops with a dutiful thud,
Your eyes on the door and your beautiful blood,
Overcast skies that are permanent and ominous,
Hopper-esque hotel rooms and the anonymous,
Already I find myself alone,
And my mind wanders into the unknown,
Counting the seconds and vowing the thirds,
I sped through space with the rapidity of words,
The worse kind of wounds don't even break the skin,
I hope I never make the same mistake again,
Memories and scars that I intend to keep,
Wounded and ruined, I only pretend to sleep.
