lyrics

From the playground and the school yard
To a winter night in spring
You were the angel and I played my part
As the devil who broke your wings


It’s been a whole long lifetime
And I tried hard to adjust
Since I got caught up in my own lies
Since I forgot just what I lost


And love might be the only thing
That I have never had
And love might be the only thing
That I would want instead


You were alive again last night
As I drove down Sunset Boulevard
And I wished I knew how to cry
As that pain ripped out my evil heart

And love might be the only thing
That I have never had
And love might be the only thing
That I would want instead


Like day and night in this city
Everything is a broken heart disease
I’ve come all the way from nowhere
And I am down on my knees


And although we were childhood friends
Flowers on the wall of my memory
Never wishing on stars but ourselves in the end
I let you die inside of me


And love might be the only thing
That I have never had
And love might be the only thing
That I would want instead
