You wake up in the morning
You punch the clock
Before you ever rub your eyes
And all the breath you're taking in
Is spent up on some distant longing sigh
Remember when we traded in our dreams for drabbest gray
For dresses and these stupid suits and ties?
I know that you've had enough
I know that we've both grown up
But something sweet inside of you has died

[Chorus:]
I know how your halo fell
I saw you bid your heart farewell
You sealed your lips, you thought that you would never tell
But I know how your halo fell

Down...town, is miserable,
Blocking out these periwinkle skies
And somewhere in the midst of this
You bite your lip and say your sad goodbyes
I am not the best with words
I wish I had a better speech
I know that there's all the reason
In the world for you to hate me

Corazon, This Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ
It tells you that he loves you
More than thirst compels us all
To ever wet our lips
If you could only hear...Listen
