LyricsEdit

If I close my eyes
Will it come to life?
Is it something I'm dreaming of
If a steady head doesn't rule my heart
Will it lead me to somewhere happy enough?
And I'm a sorry soul in a sinful world
And you don't get out alive
If I meet myself in a half way home
And I'll remember the things you said

Love isn't always fair but that's no reason to be so cruel to me
Hold onto what is there and count the saints

There's a reason why we keep it all inside
To shield our hopes from the raining sky
And arrange it all into simple lines
To be part of a world where love can reside
And the hopes I hold in my careful hands
Well they don't get out alive
And I gave myself to an honest man
Who couldn't keep his promises

Love isn't always fair but that's no reason to be so cruel to me
Hold onto what is there and count the saints and count the saints and count the saints

Love isn't always fair but that's no reason to be so cruel to me
Hold onto what is there and count the saints and count the saints and count the saints
