Scenes From A Movie – The Cover-Up lyrics

It's not about the crime but the cover-up.
So I'll keep the covers up to my neck with my eyes shut.
It's all I have left to save.
And I painted the most beautiful picture on the back of my eyelids
just in case I miss her enough.
I will close them and I will see.

I'm sweating bullets.
I never thought that I could pull this wool over your eyes.
Cause you and I both know that we weren't ones for this disguise.
Keep the lights down low.
Don't show your fear. They won't hear.
Well is it worth this?
Well tell me what do you do when there's nothing left?

It's not about the crime but the cover-up.
So I'll keep the covers up to my neck with my eyes shut.
It's all I have left to save.
And I painted the most beautiful picture on the back of my eyelids
just in case I miss her enough.
I will close them and I will see.

Don't try to catch me. Don't try to find me.
You know I'm always hiding.
You won't see me, better listen for my breathing.
Don't try to catch me. Don't try to find me.
You know I'm always hiding
better listen for the beating of the heart we know we both share.
Don't be scared. You know that's my job.
Well tell me what do you when there's nothing there?

It's not about the crime but the cover-up.
So I'll keep the covers up to my neck with my eyes shut.
It's all I have left to save.
And I painted the most beautiful picture on the back of my eyelids
just in case I miss her enough.
I will close them and I will see.

It's always something but it's never what we wanted
cause there's nothing more deceiving than the lives were leaving.
Nothing worse than seeing all the faith you put in.

It's not about the crime but the cover-up.
So I'll keep the covers up to my neck with my eyes shut.
It's all I have left to save.
And I painted the most beautiful picture on the back of my eyelids
just in case I miss her enough.
I will close them and I will see.

It's always something but it's never what we wanted to be.
It's always something but it's never what we wanted to be.
