Lyrics:
------

Intro(2x)

Rif 1: The strands in your eyes that color them wonderfull
       Stop me and steal my breath
Rif 1: Emeralds from mountains thrust towards the sky
       Never revealing their depth
Rif 2: Tell me that we belong together
Rif 2: Dress it up with the trappings of love
Rif 2: I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips
Rif 3: Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

Rif 1: And I'll be your crying shoulder
       I'll be loves suicide
Rif 1: I'll be better when I'm older
       I'll be the greatest fan of your life...Rif 1

Rif 1: Rain falls angry on the tin roof
       As we lie awake in my bed
Rif 1: You're my survival, you're my living proof
       My love is alive not dead
Rif 2: Tell me that we belong together
Rif 2: Dress it up with the trappings of love
Rif 2: I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips
Rif 3: Instead of the gallows of heartache, that hang from above

Rif 1: And I'll be your crying shoulder
       I'll be loves suicide
Rif 1: I'll be better when I'm older
       I'll be the greatest fan of your life...Rif 1

Rif 4: And I've dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead
Rif 4: Tuned in, turned on, remembered the thing that you said...Rif 5

Rif 1: And I'll be your crying shoulder
       I'll be loves suicide
Rif 1: I'll be better when I'm older
       I'll be the greatest fan of your life...Rif 1
