Well there must have been a reason for the smile that you had upon your
face last night
Are you the cat that got the cream did you lick your lips did you close
your eyes
Can you imagine how it feels it's so hard to reveal
Oh i can't get through and i'm falling
I'm getting out i'm losing ground
The spanish archer's gonna bring you down

Is there someone somewhere waiting in the wings to take my place
Let's not drag it out like a cagney death scene
In this season of change it's not hard to explain
Like the leaves on the trees i'm falling
And as you turn don't look away
The spanish archer's gonna make you pay

Do you remember when the sky was blue we used to talk for miles
And now we drive along in this thundering silence
It's such an obvious lie with that easy smile of yours
I'm letting go and i'm falling
I'm getting out losing ground
The spanish archer's gonna bring you down

Well is there something i can say as we stumble to the edge have we gone
too far
Why don't we call it a day before we call it a nightmare darlin'
If we made a mistake then all that it takes to be free
Is the wave of a hand and you're falling and as you turn don't look away
The spanish archer's gonna make you pay
