Richard Ashcroft – Black Lines lyrics
[Verse 1]
Who put those black lines
Under your eyes?
Let me replace them
With a smile
Letters from lovers
That you don’t read
And talks of children
You’ve not conceived

[Chorus]
Yes, it’s real life
Sometimes it gets so hard you wonder
Why you try, it makes no sense at all
So you just
Turn off the light(?)
Try to figure out
What’s going on in your mind
It makes no sense at all
You know, and I know too
You gotta see it through
Til' the morning
I can wait until the morning
So you close your eyes, you think of death(?)
Nothing left in your head
Til the morning, can you wait until the morning?

[Verse 2]
Sweet bird of fortune
I have to let you go
This gilded cage here
Couldn’t hold it so(?)

[Bridge]
So, who put those black lines
Under your eyes?
Let me replace them
With a smile
Yes, it’s real life
Sometimes it gets so hard you wonder
Why you try, it makes no sense at all
So you just
Turn off the light(?)
Try to figure out
What’s going on in your mind
It makes no sense at all

[Chorus]
Yes, it’s real life
Sometimes it gets so hard you wonder
Why you try, it makes no sense at all
So you just
Turn off the light(?)
Try to figure out
What’s going on in your mind
It makes no sense at all
You know, and I know too
You gotta see it through
Til' the morning
I pray until the morning
So you close your eyes, you think of death
You think of yourself, somewhere better
In the morning, still praying through the morning

[Outro]
I can wait until the morning
Let’s wait until the morning
Still praying through the morning
I can wait until the morning (3x)
