lyrics

her sloppy kisses leave a bruise
she's aroused and i'm confused
taking risks the dangerous kind
stain the sheets, close the blinds
every choice, every chance we take
every time the branch bends to break
of all the mask i've come to own
it fits just right, it feels like home

she's sneaking cigarettes & wishing on stars
late night cheep, beer, stolen cars
with a prayer on her hand and a poem on her lips
a life wasted, worth more then this
(hey)
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
...waiting there for me

i can still smell you on my clothes
what dreams are left only heaven knows
your making promises i can't keep
telling secrets while you sleep
a heart that hurts a heart like mine
i'm always yours, your hard to find
an angels face i wouldn't know
she fell from grace so long ago

she's sneaking cigarettes & wishing on stars
late night cheep, beer, stolen cars
with a prayer on her hand and a poem on her lips
a life wasted, worth more then this
(hey)
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
(hey)
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
why did it take so long


she's a pretty catastrophe
burns bright for all to see
with a voice like a memory
and she's never coming home

she's starting fires with her eyes
a kind of love to agonize
she wore truth like a disguise
and she's never coming home

post script and epitaph
listen now i can hear her laugh
singing songs on her behalf
the girl we'll never know

she's sneaking cigarettes & wishing on stars
late night cheep, beer, stolen cars
with a prayer on her hand and a poem on her lips
a life wasted, worth more then this
(hey)
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
why did it take so long
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea

she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide returning to the sea
she's slipping away into the tide is she waiting there for me
