lyrics

Like a beautiful creature
Wounded in war
Your scars still a feature
Unwanted and raw

I’ve fallen in love
With your sadness
With your defiance
I’ve fallen in love
With those bullet holes
And those used up hopes

There was something so alluring
About the way you didn’t care
Your sweet insistence, my persistence
Would not lead us there

I’ve fallen in love
With your sadness
With your defiance
I’ve fallen in love
With those bullet holes
And those used up hopes

And those phantoms of the past
With their whispers
And their looking glass
Laid to rest
Made my peace at last

I’ve fallen in love
With your sadness
With your defiance
I’ve fallen in love
With those bullet holes
And those precious hopes
