Down By Law – Sympathy For The World lyrics

Of all the times i've tried to talk to you
And acted out of line
Please understand
When I tell you more than anything
Why must we hold a candle to all our shames?
I forgave my enemies
But I never forgot their names
Of all the times i've tried to talk to you
This time I think i'm fine
We'll make it through
''cause i'll never want you to cry
And there's no fire without lots of smoke
Everyone laughed, I didn't get the joke
But i'm secure with my insecurity
And i'm so sure with my uncertainty
I know we're bored with our apologies
This time we're making everything we need
This time, I don't want to know what i'm thinking
I just want to know what you think
And do you think that I should think this way?
