Song Lyrics

Here’s an idea to leave you with
By 2015, we could live in a world where no kids are born with HIV
The first born aids free generation in our lifetime, by 2015
That’s a thought, right?
Every day 1000 mothers give birth to a child with HIV
And it doesn’t have to be, so sign up for the One campaign
Choose Red, support your first lady, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy
The Global Fund, they’re here tonight, this is for them
Thank you, you’re our heroes, the Global Fund

Oh, oh, oh-oh-oh…

I tied myself with wire
To let the horses run free
I was playing with the fire
Till the fire played with me, oh

Stone was semi-precious
We were barely conscious
Two souls too cool to be
In the realm of certainty
Even on our wedding day

At the moment of surrender
I folded to my knees
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

I’ve been in every black hole
At the altar of the dark star
My body’s now a begging bowl
It’s begging to get back
It’s begging to get back to my heart

To the rhythm of my soul
To the rhythm of my unconsciousness
To the rhythm that yearns
To be released from control

I was punching in the number
At the ATM machine
I could see in the reflection
A face staring back at me

At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me, oh

One last time

I was speeding on the subway
Through the stations of the cross
Every eye looking every other way
Counting down till the pain would stop

At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

Oh, oh, oh…

Life is short but it’s the longest thing you’ll ever do
The worse, the curse was your dreams came true
God is a mirror in which each man sees himself
Hell is a place where you don’t need any help
When I first met you, your face was like snow
Wherever I went to you wanted to go
Your faith, your grace, your can of mace in a case
As you put it down, 8:17 on the ground
Your faith in a clown, your faith in a clown

Don’t leave me now
Alone in the song
Don’t leave me now
Alone in the song
Don’t leave me now
