Sleater Kinney – Pompeii lyrics

And then one fine morning

She woke, she knew

One long look at her life
It was you

(What you want youmight never have

Wait for it until it forms a scar)

Come hell or high water

Her heart was made

Will get in the way
No friendand no love

For size long years happiness spoke

But then the time was up
The spell was broke

(Take your time, no hurry up

Change your mind, go back to the start)

What I have done
She said that I have done

To get my way
To get this day

You're gonna find out
You're gonna get low

It's time to darken your soul

Fortune weary love
Fortune weary love

Baby don't you dare give up on me now
