lyrics

Up at 5 up at 6 up at 7 up at 8 and she didn’t fall asleep for hours
Suddenly she can tell why she’s not sleeping well
it’s like a recurring dream
When her heart & her feet & her mind & her gut
spend the night in the same bed
They fight for space for their small common place
she’s feeling small & common place

I think I’ll try to stick with love, ooh,
because hate is far too great a burden to bear

Didn’t I used to lie all the time through my eye and my face,
sometimes through my teeth
Outwardly keeping calm while inside brewed a storm
rage against the machine
much violence would grow, not past my window,
did I think no-one could see
Why did I try so hard? Ooh

I think I’ll try to stick with love, ooh,
because hate is far too great a burden to bear

And I know yes I know that I am feeling contrite
but head and heart are apart
And I want yes I want to try and make things right
feet on the floor eyes on the door, speak the light,
please try no more lies

I think I’ll try to stick with love ooh,
because hate is far too great a burden to bear
