lyrics

A QUIET KIND OF MADNESS

You’re not punch drunk, just a bottle of wine
You’re not burned out or bored, you’re just passing the time
I’m not losing you, it’s just the fear in my mind
And there’s nothing there to tell me that I’m wrong

And sometimes when you sleep, I’m lying awake
I know that you are flesh and bone, sidekick of fate
And we are not a question, of love and hate
Because of you I know just what I am
And I think we’re part of someone else’s plan

*****CHORUS*****
Addicted to the bittersweet of sadness
Impurity and badness
A quiet kind of madness
Addressed my dreams like envelopes
Addicted to the shame
The pleasure and the pain
It’s my detriment and gain
But I do not fear the rain
*****

You’re not so old, there’s no grey in your hair
And you’re rolling back the years with your TV stare
There’s nothing I can do to show you how I care
But I’d run and run forever and a day
And when quiet comes, you won’t know that I’m there

*****CHORUS*****

But I do not fear the rain, I’ll turn and face the shame
But I do not fear the rain, I’ll turn and face the shame
