Hem – The Pills Stopped Working lyrics

(Gary Maurer/Dan Messe)

Ain't holding out for a miracle now
Just holding out for the water
Across the bridge that will carry me down
To the center of the Spanish Quarter

And I know that I don't belong with you
I know the pills stopped working for me
So if you want to set me up
I'll fall on my knees and fix what I have broke

I spent my whole life looking for land
But said a lone love breakers
And saw the home that I held in my hand
Was just some dirt inside a scrap of paper

And I know that I should be long gone
And I know the pills stopped working long ago
If you want to look me up
I'll fall on my knees and fix whatever's broke

There's no place in the world
That can make this right
There's no home I once had that I have in sight
There's no one that can come to my side tonight
To save me
Come save me

The whole world sinking down in the bay
The sun is treading water
Suppose that you could save me some way
But I told you baby not to bother

'cause I know that I'm going down there
And I know the pills don't work for me no more
I don't want to spend my whole life down on my knees
