The New York Room – In Spite Of Everything lyrics

Anguish is near
So close with me here
And I've nowhere to run
And nowhere to hide
So just let me lie
Here by your side

But before I sleep
Before I escape
Please heed my demand
And just hold my hand

Just for awhile
I hope you don't mind
But I've nowhere to go
And I can't decide
So paint me a smile
As I close my eyes

But before I sleep
Take leave of my grief
So just one last time
I'll take what is mine

With my so-called scars
And their so-cold hearts
With eyes staring blankly
And feeling far away
Just long enough
To keep the wolves at bay
