Marty Willson-piper – Frightened Just Because Of You lyrics

Ash, ash what were you once
Can greying dust tell likely stories
Shall your future turn to stone
Or will your beauty be alone
Laden with the curse of taste
I cannot help but laugh
And laugh
Bigger men with taller stories
Why have heroes when you
Want their glories?

Someone spoke, I couldn't move
I'm frightened just because of you
Someone spoke, I couldn't move
Frightened just because of you

Oh no, I know that face
You make my feet like lumps
Of lead
The nearer you come the
Slower I get
You act like the ocean but you
Only get wet

Peace, peace don't open your
You'll only begin what you
Already started
The only stand is the one you
Don't take
And no one opposes the things
You can't take.
