Massive Attack – Babel lyrics

Say it was on paper
Say it was my Babel
It was my Babel
Tell all people

Now you know it's over
Rolling off her shoulder
You can take a ladder to the shadows and forget
Was it how she kissed you
And then dismissed you
Was it purposeful and was it just to hook you in

Hating till you lost it all
Well, you lost girlfriend
She was not your win
Where you were going
You are on your own

He was quick to burning
He was slow to learning
Though his eyes were misted he still kissed her when she cried
You did your best to replace her
And didn't up and leave her
You befriended the harsh way it ended, now sleep tight

Breaking if you lost it all
Was it all your good
Reachin into it
And when you do it
I will curve in love

I wanna be the one that should've said "You do not dare"
I'm running so far out of my head
This rain of heart that ripples my pray
You can never sail by thinking away, wait
