Song Lyrics

(Written by Kevin Griffin)




Past the road to your house

That you never called home

Where they turned out the lights

Though they say you`ll never know



I remember running through the wet grass

Falling a step behind

Both of us never tiring

Desperately Wanting



When they pumped out your guts

Filled you full of those pills

You were never quite right

Deserving all the chills

Say the worst is over

Kicked it over again

Then they ask what went wrong

When they turn you on again

Then they turn you on again.



I remember running through the wet grass

Falling a step behind

Both of us never tiring

Desperately Wanting

(2x)



Kick them right in the face

Make them wish they weren`t born

And if they bring up your name

Well they`ll say you won the war.

Baby burst in the world

Never given a chance

Then they ask what went wrong

When you never had it right

No, you never had it right

(Chorus)



Oh, the letters have dropped off

Though they say you got them all

I finally figured out some things you`ll never know.

Take back your life and let me inside

We`ll find the door if you care to anymore.



I remember running through the wet grass

Falling a step behind

Both of us never tiring

Desperately Wanting.

(2x)
