Murmurs – Sleepless Commotion lyrics

When you show up like that,
What am I supposed to say...

Takes a while for the bruises to heal.
Oh you've got to escape,
Before it's too late.

Children of the garden -
Tangled in danger -
Playing the smile,
And suffering... Suffering alone

Daring a battle with the bastard...
Who's killing us slowly...

Sleepless commotion
Sleepless commotion

And slash the water bed
And slashed all her clothes
Smashed all the crystal
And broke the window

Sleepless commotion
Sleepless comomotion

Police won't arrive,
And I've hidden the scotch.
Oh that's made matters worse.
Now he's laughing at us.

Children of the garden -
Tangled in danger -
Playing the smile
And suffering... Suffering alone

I'm praying for daybreak
I'm praying for peace
I'm praying for freedom
I'm praying she'll leave him...

And all I can do is
Protect while I'm here now.
I won't go too far
I have nothing to fear.

Except when I am not here...

Now it's over,
The night won't return.
A phone call in search of her soul
I left her alone.
Why'd I leave her alone?...

Sleepless commotion,
Sleepless commotion...

Children of the garden -
Tangled in danger -
Playing the smile,
And suffering alone.
