AWAITING ROBINS

Verse I

So give me one more hit of your loving.

I'll quit in the morning and if can't I'll overdose and live in purgatory,

Dionysus has a room there for me. 

And fill my head with white bread,

Candy floss and Coca-Cola,

Rot my teeth - a little guilty treat.

I know you're bad for me baby, but thats alright,

I'll have a bite when the world looks away.

Bridge

Cause you painted the sky - and said that the light wouldn't leave.

Well I watched the stars go out last night,

One by one they turned their back one me.

Chorus

And now I'm hurt.

I let it go because I didn't know.

Verse I

Cause I'm living for a good life,

But I'm dying for a nightmare.

And my brain is addicted and your name's on a sticky note under my tongue. 

Well I said that we would be fine,

Well darling I was naive.

And now my life's just a sickening - weak plotted quickening play for your eyes.

Bridge

Living for a good life - dying for a nightmare. 

Living for a good life - what a nightmare.

Living for a good life - dying for a nightmare. 

Living for a good life - what a nightmare.

Bridge

So I will lie by the river watch it pass me by,

My hands are tied to another.

And I will walk I will listen to the robin sing while he paints his breast for his lover.
