Repeat Verse Riff before Verse 2 Lyrics Start,

Verse 2 Lyrics:

"All my prize posessions
That I thought I needed so
Dragged me down on a razor
With a heaviness they tow"

"Always searching for a love that's in bloom
It's a warm and soft embrace
Hoping you'll never be lonely again
It's a fear that you just can't face"
