The Airborne Toxic Event – All For A Woman lyrics

All of these grateful looks
All these grateful eyes
All the furious stares and the fretful sighs

Promising everything
To everyone
We'll be back soon
You're my favorite one

And I'll keep it quiet
I'll hold you dear
Your whisperin fills the ear

Tell me you'll stay
We would have such fun
And a lie you don't need anyone

And the screams the wails and the call
The headiness of the Fall
Ten-thousand miles from where we began
I fell asleep with a picture in hand
It was all for a woman

You say that you're grateful for the time alone
Two years away and I don't miss home
And everyone asks you if you still think of her
So you smile politely and you demur

But then all at once your head starts to swell
You can feel her breath on your skin
You find that you stare at the same spot for days,
She's above you, below you in waves.

And you're shiverin cold
Like you're just ten years old
She's lying asleep in your bed

You're standing beside her
The light from inside her
Filling up the darkness in your head
It was all for a woman

And you've drowned in the teasing
You've forgotten the reason
The muse inspired the art

You'd give anything for
Her to say them once more
The words you believed at the start

Ten-thousand miles from where it began
Falling asleep with her picture in hand
And it was all... It was all
For the look in her eye
For the promise and the lie of a woman.
