lyrics

AMAZED

Hold me. Hold me.
My eyes are filled with all the lies you told me.
Fire. Oh that fire.
Watched you burn it all away for your desire
Angel. My sweet angel
The cold and broken-hearted nights aren’t over.
Time was. Oh the time was.
When the wisdom of a man would hold his hand
from breaking a young girl’s heart

When I look in your eyes
And I see your surprise
All the love that you gave came crashing down
On your shoulders one last time

Well I’m amazed at the way that you play
Such a pretty little masquerade of love
All the ways that you made it ok in your mind
It must have torn you up inside
Well I’m amazed, I’m amazed
That you turned your back on love from her that way
All the dreams now just seem like a flame in the wind
Another broken house of cards.

Father. Oh my father
All the ways you claimed your life was won by honor.
Mother. Oh my mother
You won’t have to stand behind the arms of another lover again.

When I look in your eyes
And I see your surprise
All the love that you gave came crashing down
On your shoulders one last time

Well I’m amazed at the way that you play
Such a pretty little masquerade of love
All the ways that you made it ok in your mind
It must have torn you up inside
Well I’m amazed, I’m amazed
That you turned your back on love from her that way
All the dreams now just seem like a flame in the wind
Another broken house of cards.
