Blackfield II Lyrics

1. Once

Want you to know
That I could go anytime
I want you to know

Gave me her lips
Gave me her perfect hips
And I slow down
I slow down in love

Once I rise inside

Once she would hold me
She was my only
Only true love
Once she had told me
That I'm holy
Only so long

She'll stay all night
She'll be so quiet
And she won't laugh at my jokes

Once I rise inside

Once she would hold me
She was my only
Only true love
Once she had told me
That I'm holy
Only so long

2. 1,000 People

One thousand people yell,
They're shouting my name,
But I wanna die in this moment,
I wanna die,

And one thousand people smile
They're smiling at me
But I wanna die in this moment,
I wanna die,

No way to understand
Why I've become the way I am,

And then the sky if filled with stars,
I find a place inside my heart,

Some people can take a blow
And they won't ever drop,
But I wanna die in this moment,
I wanna die,

She will tell me she loves me
And she won't ever stop,
But I wanna die in this moment,
I wanna die,

A coldness in my soul
And I reach out for her to hold,

And then I watch her close her eyes,
It's only me that needs to cry

And if I stay with you,
Do you believe that I'll pull through?

No way to understand
Why I've become the way I am,

And then the sky is filled with stars,
I find a place inside my heart,
And then I watch her close her eyes,
It's only me that needs to cry,

One thousand people yell,
They're shouting my name,
But I wanna die in this moment,
I wanna die.

3. Miss U

They said you're in love again
And I tried to hide my pain
I was buried in my bed
With your pictures in my head

You were living another life
It cuts me like a knife
I hope you understand
I'm the one who's left behind

Tomorrow you'll be gone
And I'll miss you
Yeah I'll miss you
Yeah I'll miss you

They said you're in love again
And my eyes start to burn
Wherever you are now
I wish you could hear my silent sigh

It's not that I try to blame
It's just kind of a rainy day
I hope you understand
I'm the one who's left behind

4. Christenings

I met you in a record store,
You had slept in the clothes you wore,
But I knew I'd seen you somewhere before,

What happened to your guitar?
What happened to the prettiest star?
Can you still play the songs that got you so far?

Hey you with your shadow in the gutter,
How low have you got to go before you're through?
High times, a butler in the morning,
All your memories are coming out of your shoes,

Black dog, sitting in the park,
Odd looks from the mothers of the devil's own,
Shoplifting getting your essentials,
Gate crashing christenings and funerals
And weddings too

I used to see you all the time on MTV,
Read your life story in a magazine,
I guess you thoughts that's the way it would always be,
But I believe in you,
Cause I think that'd you'd want me to,
Though I never really liked your songs it's true

Hey you with your shadow in the gutter,
How low have you got to go before you're through?
High times, a butler in the morning,
All your memories are coming out of your shoes,

Black dog, sitting in the park,
Odd looks from the mothers of the devil's own,
Shoplifting getting your essentials,
Gate crashing christenings and funerals
And weddings too.

5. This Killer

Don't leave the door ajar
Don't walk away
Don't leave me in the dark

You think you know me well
It makes me laugh
Cause I don't know myself

This killer on the run
He steals from me a song
He'll catch me off my guard
He likes me when I'm down
And when I'm sad
Fallen man
Fallen man

It's always me alone
That hears the noise
Cause it's my inner voice

So stay inside your hole
We'll hide away
Before I lose control

This killer on the run
He steals from me a song
He'll catch me off my guard
He likes me when I'm down
And when I'm sad
Fallen man
Fallen man

This killer on the run
He steals from me a song
And I can say I know him well
And so can he, because it's me
He is me
He is me

6. Epidemic

Don't say everything's okay
Don't tell me that it's just a phase
It doesn't help me

All the stars are standing still
The anger and the sleeping pills
Are all that's left now

An epidemic in my heart
Takes hold and slowly poisons me
Her will won't let me breathe
It comes in waves and bleeds me dry
This love is slowly killing me
For me, there's no one else

Jealousy just eats me up
Another's made the deepest cuts
My heart is popping

You say there must be an end
But afterwards we'll still be friends
It seemed so easy

An epidemic in my heart
Takes hold and slowly poisons me
Her will won't let me breathe
It comes in waves and bleeds me dry
This love is slowly killing me
For me, there's no one else

7. My Gift Of Silence

If I compiled
All my crimes and my lies,
Into amnesty,
Would you come back to me,

The smile on my lips
Is a sign that I don't hear you leaving me,
And I don't hear my own soul scream,

I'll read your lips,
Watch your scarf play at your hips,
And I know its true,
But I don't hear him call to you,
Don't blame yourself,
Don't change yourself,
Just want to be over you
Save you love,
Don't hate yourself,

If I compiled
All my crimes and my lies into amnesty,
Would you come back to me,

The smile on my lips
Is a sign that I don't hear you leaving me,
And I don't hear my own soul scream,

Don't blame yourself,
Don't change yourself,
I just wanna be over, you see,
And feel numb.
Don't hate yourself.

8. Some Day

When you were a boy
You had no place inside your parents' world.
You were falling like the leaves
From an old and dying tree

You went to school,
But the teachers made you feel a fool
While the children played with joy
You're the one who were avoid

Some day you will find a better place to stay
You'll never need to feel this way again

Show a smile,
They'd like to have you in the members club
They'll buy you drinks and tell you lies
Paper umbrella with some ice.

No one cares,
About that fucking pretty face you have,
It means nothing much this life
So find the highest cliff and dive.

Some day you will find a better place to stay
You'll never need to feel this way again

9. Where Is My Love?

Endless fields of emptiness in my dark and wounded heart
Where is my love?

The freezing moment when you turned your head and waved goodbye
Where is my love?

Even all the biggest storms can't take my pain away
Where is my love?
Noisy happy people crossing streets from side to side
Where is my love?

I gave you everything I could but you want the stars
Where is my love?
Endless fields of emptiness in my dark and wounded heart
Where is my love?

Even all the biggest storms can't take my pain away
Where is my love?
Noisy happy people crossing streets from side to side
Where is my love?

10. End Of The World

Don't you forget what I've told you
So many years
We are hopeless and slaves to our fears
We're an accident called human beings

Don't be angry for loving the baby
And say it's unreal
So many lives turned to salt
Like roses who're hiding their thorns

It's the end of the world
The end of the world
It's a prison for dreams and for hopes
And still we believe there is God
It's the end of the world
The end of the world
We're dead but pretend we're alive
Full of ignorance, fools in disguise

In your room doing nothing
But staring at flickering screens
Streets are empty, but still you can hear
Joy of children turning to tears

Disease hides around every corner
Quiet, lay still
Wait for a moment to hear
We forgot what is touch, what to feel

It's the end of the world
The end of the world
It's a prison for dreams and for hopes
And still we believe there is God
It's the end of the world
The end of the world
We're dead but pretend we're alive
Full of ignorance, fools in disguise

Take this pill, it will make you feel dizzy
And then give you wings
Soon, boy, you'll fall into sleep
Without nightmares, without any fears

If you wake up in hell or in heaven
Tell the angels we're here
Waiting below for a dream
Here in the garden of sin

It's the end of the world
The end of the world
It's a prison for dreams and for hopes
And still we believe there is God
It's the end of the world
The end of the world
We're dead but pretend we're alive
Full of ignorance, fools in disguise
