Chromatics - Kill for Love Lyrics






Into The Black

[ Originally by Neil Young ]

My, my
Hey, hey
Rock and Roll
Is here to stay
It's better to burn out
Than to fade away

My, my
Hey, hey
Out of the blue
Into the black
They give you this
But you pay for that
Once you're gone
You can never come back
When you're
Out of the blue
Into the black

The King is gone
But he's not forgotten
This is the story of Johnny Rotten
It's better to burn out than it is to rust
The King is gone but he's not forgotten

Hey, hey
My, my
Rock and Roll
Can never die
There's more to the picture
Than meets the eye
Hey, hey
My, my

Kill For Love

Everybody's got a secret to hide
Everyone is slipping backwards
I drank the water and I felt alright
I took a pill almost every night
In my mind I was waiting for change
While the world just stayed the same
Everybody's got a secret to hide
Everyone is slipping backwards

I can't remember if I like what I said
I can't remember it went straight to my head
I kept a bottle by the foot of the bed
I put a pillow right on top of my head
But I killed for love

Everybody's got a secret to hide
Everyone is slipping backwards
You say you see it almost every time
A little number counting back to nine
I can't remember if I like what I said
I can't remember it went straight to my head
But I killed for love

Back From The Grave

In a white room
Where the grass would grow
And the music was slow
All the pleasure and pain washed away with the wind
And babies are born
And monsters are born
Memories fade
Like a thief in the night they try to put out the light
When I look at the sky
Well I wish I was gone
Because mother you're gone and father you're gone
Lover you're gone and other you're gone

Mother, father, lover
Hero, pleasure, other
Mother, father, lover
Hero, pleasure, other

Mothers are born
Fathers are born
Lovers are born
Others are born

But the thief in the night
They try to put out the light
Memories fade
And I wish I was gone
Because mother you're gone and father you're gone
Lover you're gone and other you're gone
Mother you're gone and father you're gone
Lover you're gone and other you're gone

The Page

when the world changes to the place so cold
i wonder if i could be your mirror
these days they that no man is an island
but when i dream of who we were i slip away

like the pages of the book i'd never get to write
on the eastside of the city
where the ink is running dry
and if you love me like you say
take this book and burn the page
the rain will wash away the ashes
On the eastside of my heart

tomorrow when your eyes are growing old
and your reflection starts to turn so cold
i wonder if i could be your mirror
and together we could crack and break forever

like the pages of the book i'd never get to write
on the eastside of the city
where the ink is running dry
and if you love me like you say
take this book and burn the page
the rain will wash away the ashes
On the eastside of my heart

Lady

I was always looking for lady
But baby you're so far away
If I could only call you my lady
Baby I could be your man
Wise men they say
Only fools fall in love
Why do we fall in love
Baby I just want you to come back
And give us all something to do
Give us all something to do
If you could only feel the flame
From the candle I burn for you
Lady if you want me to come back
I'll come running back to you
But baby if you ask me to come back
You've got to give me something to do

These Streets Will Never Look The Same

Spent my life inside this room
And disappeared some more each day
Spent my life inside this room
And disappeared some more each day

The screen stayed flashing in my mind (4x)

Spent my life inside this room
And disappeared some more each day
Spent my life inside this room
And disappeared some more each day

I couldn't run away from you
You kept me hanging on the line
I couldn't run away from you
You kept me hanging on the line

I get so lonely all the time
I try to find my way back home

These streets will never look the same
My broken heart erased your name

The screen stayed flashing in my mind (4x)

...

Spent my life inside this room
And disappeared some more each day

These streets will never look the same
My broken heart erased your name

The screen stayed flashing in my mind (4x)

Candy

candy
please don't let them in your heart
because they'll try to put out every fire you start

candy
you can light the match again
and as they try to run and hide
we'll burn down everything in sight

oh, candy
your touch is like a veil over my eyes
and when we're driving in your car
i could be anyone tonight

oh, candy
please don't let them in your heart
because they'll try to steal that flame from in your eyes

oh, candy
oh, candy

Running From The Sun

The burning flame is flickering now
I say walk with fire
It's the same dream every night
Don't be scared it'll be alright

And if you hold your thoughts too tight
They'll say you can't keep running from the sun

Then morning comes and they're waking up
Drinking blood from a paper cup
It's the same old dream we all had last night
And they'll be there burning next to you

If you say your prayers tonight
Be careful what you ask
And if you lock your windows tight
Daylight still peaks through cracks

Running from the sun

Birds Of Paradise

Baby, when I first saw you,
I knew you held the keys to my heart,
and in the setting sun we flew away
to a broken kind of paradise
where time would stand still.
You are the black sky
always running from the sun.

Paralyzed, I dug a well deep inside.
I kissed the tide,
you held the moon
and carried the stars
like life was a memory
and death just a possibility.
You are the black sky
always running from the sun.
You're always running from the sun.

A Matter Of Time

Baby
You're crying yourself to sleep again
Baby
How could they do this to you
Baby
It's all over your face tonight
Baby
It's just a matter of time

Baby
Cry yourself to sleep again
Baby
You give it all away
Maybe
This is the way it ends tonight
Baby
We all cry alone

Baby
Cry yourself to sleep again
Baby
The past is your only friend tonight
Maybe
Your life is only a dream tonight
Baby
We all cry alone

At Your Door

I don't know why
I knocked at your door
I don't know why
but i can't wait anymore

it's like we're all frozen now
just like ice in a glass
i didn't come here for answers
i just needed a laugh

when you look deep inside yourself
well tell me what do you see
confusion of time again (?)
or someplace frozen with me

you know love never turns out
the way we all plan
but the door is still open
so give me your hand
give me your hand
give me your hand

time is stretching on
and it keeps on repeating
as the beat goes on
our dreams have all vanished now
we really thought we could win

but the door is still open
so come on in
and give me your hand
give me your hand
give me your hand
give me your hand

The River

I watch the moon hang in the sky
I feel the traffic rushing by
Freight train engine in the night
I'm still here waiting for you

I watch the moon hang in the air
I feel the cold breeze in my hair
My eyes blind by headlights glare
I'm still here waiting for you

I take the night train to sky
Rising up I close my eyes
The ground beneath me dead and dry
I'm still here waiting for you

But I won't cry another tear
For all the pain we saw last year
The river thirsts for those who fear
I'm still here waiting for you

We once walked these streets
In search for the unthinkable
We tried to be invisible
It only made us miserable
I once lost it all
In a game that can't be won
I took a chance and had to run
The river was the only one
Will you leave it all behind
Water Rushing through your mind
The river's thirst is so unkind
But I'm still here waiting for you
