Colours Run – Beautiful Waste Of Time lyrics

We step out into the decadent decay
To stir the languor of our love
And when we kiss, you turn your tired eyes away
Trapped in the mirror hung above
Sometimes I'm glad I've only got one life to waste
You are the needle in my arm
And though I'm dying, I have such a pretty time
You do me harm
Come on, do me harm
It's a lovely waste, such a beautiful waste
You're a wonderful waste of time
And I could lose my mind in your pointless embrace
Such a beautiful waste of time

Every night's a fight for life
The finest food, the driest wines
Don't stop the music, keep on dancing as we sink
Shot holes beneath the waterline
And I can only speak in metaphors
As I watch the horde assail the walls
Oh my darling, close your eyes and let's pretend
That we're not here at all

It's a lovely waste, such a beautiful waste
You're a wonderful waste of time
And I could lose my mind to your pointless debates
Such a beautiful waste of time

In moonlit shoes, I buried all my clocks
I meant to sieze the day
But somehow I forgot
Could be a king if I could just wake up
I wrote the book
On how to lose the plot
I love you girl, but you tie me up in knots
Keep tripping on your violins and handcuffs

You're a lovely waste, such a beautiful waste
You're a wonderful waste of time
And I could lose my mind in your pointless embrace
Such a beautiful waste of time

Maybe one fine day, I could light up the stage
Where the bells of escape still chime
But not tonight, cos I still can't tear my face away
From this beautiful waste of time
