THE KILLING DAYLIGHTS

The Thought Has Cost My Mind
Stand behind me and I'll shield you from the blast
from the jagged, piercing, flying shards of glass
I'll hold the shutter open for exposure
I'll do anything you ask
Dreamt I saw you leaving with that look upon your face
like you had never ever, ever even known me
like I was some kind of charity case
It's raining, it's pouring-- the last train is boarding 
and you're not there to say goodbye
I'm leaving the station on a ride through creation
and I find myself starting to cry
And you don't need my help making up reasons
the thought has cost my mind
I said you don't need my help watching old reruns
the thought has cost my mind this time
The thought has cost my mind 
of you and me together until the end of time
I said the thought has cost my mind 
of you never looking forward 
you're always focused on behind 
I said the thought has cost my mind
imagining you and me together until the end of time
I said the thought has cost my mind
of you never looking forward
you're always focused on behind 

Better Think Twice
Sometimes I feel like I'm all alone
 and no one's on my side
 But I can't make it on my own,
 despite my foolish pride
 I'll learn the things that I should have known,
 my love won't be denied
 I'll work my fingers right down to the bone
 but I won't be satisfied
 No, I'm never satisfied...
And you better think twice
 before you test The Killing Daylights (Yeah!)
 Try as you might
 You can't resist The Killing Daylights (Yeah!)
Response
 ability
 Is my response
 ability
I try to remember but I always forget
And you better think twice
 before you test The Killing Daylights (Yeah!)
 Try as you might
 You can't resist The Killing Daylights (Yeah!)
Sometimes I feel like I'm all alone
 And no one's on my side

CASTING SHADOWS

Make Believe
I dream of a life unknown to me 
full of people I'll never meet
Descendants of a long and noble history
But it all sounds like make believe
Yes it all sounds like make believe
It's getting harder to focus my attention
All I can think about is where I'd rather be
All of my friends are staging drastic interventions
I believe they'd like to beat 
the living daylights out of me
And don't you find it a little bit peculiar
we should meet in such an awful place
We could set off on a voyage to an alternate reality 
living only for the chase
I've been pretending not to notice things have changed
and when you kiss me in the morning it's not the same
I keep waiting for your voice to call her name
Call her name
I dream of a life unknown to me
 full of people I'll never meet
 Descendants of a long and noble history
But it all sounds like make believe
Yes it all sounds like make believe
There is a hole in the center of the galaxy
where it leads no one can really say
but it shouldn't be a problem for you and me
'cause we're just so very far away 
I've been pretending not to notice things have changed
and when you kiss me in the morning it's not the same
I keep waiting for your voice to call her name
Call her name
I dream of a life unknown to me
full of people I'll never meet
Descendants of a long and noble history
But it all sounds like make believe
Yes it all sounds like make believe
