lyrics

Yesterdays stagger led me astray
Out of the water and onto the train
Humming blind, reaching for the sky
Headed toward a height that even
Eagles only dream to fly

You see it's not that I'm not happy
It's not that I don't like you
It's just that it still gets lonely
Here so far from the dark side of blue

Living with love's plague
Will bring you closer to God
You're always closer to heaven, baby
When we're on the mountains top

The season's the sound of murder
And like a lonesome crow
I'm gonna give you my heart
Just because I know you're gonna let it go

You see it's not that I'm not happy
It's not that I don't like you
It's just that it still gets lonely
Here so far from the dark side of blue
