Del Amitri – Scared To Live lyrics

Walk into the lightning of a midnight bulletin
Our brave new world sits smiling with egg on its chin
And love gets so lazy, love gets so slow
We stopped making love in the hours of daylight, too many moons ago

But now that we've given all we have to give
Maybe we're just scared to live

Since I go so blinkered to nothin' else but you
I've been playing for each cheap reward, like game show gluttons do
And love's the honest truth, babe
And love's such a beautiful lie
So don't look so confused honey, know it's true tonight

Now that I've given all I have to give
Maybe I'm just scared to live, scared to live
Maybe I'm just scared to live, scared to live

Why can't I wake up and make something of my life?
Why can't I wake up to this life?

How can you have no faith in this your own home town?
Can't you practice a little discretion, play the whole thing down?
And since you got so blinkered to the highs and lows of a hopeless thing
Maybe you can take this heart and pass it on to him

Now that I've given all I have to give
Maybe I'm just scared to live, scared to live
Maybe I'm just scared to live, scared to live

Maybe you can take this heart
Maybe you can take this heart and pass it on to him
