dead and laid to rest lyrics – cold chisel

dead and laid to rest

how many torments
i’ve had in my time?
was looking for love
by i was too blind
i stepped in the circle
to play out the game
but all that i offered
just turned out the same

a little bit more a little bit less
deeper in love and deeper in debt
i look at the stars that i cannot give
without some feeling i just can’t live
wake and remember that no one is blessed
now i know the truth
is dead and laid to rest

no sound but a river
that run’s from my heart
it flows from a mountain
then tears me apart
will there come a season
that i will not weep?
i prayed like you wanted
but it all felt too cheap

a little bit more a little bit less
deeper in love and deeper in debt
i look at the stars that i cannot give
without some feeling i just can’t live
wake and remember that no one is blessed
now i know the truth
is dead and laid to rest

sometimes i am frightened alone in the dark
you know i can’t hide it,
i’ve been waiting until the hurting starts

a little bit more a little bit less
deeper in love and deeper in debt
i look at the stars that i cannot give
without some feeling i just can’t live
wake and remember that no one is blessed
now i know the truth
is dead and laid to rest
