down in splendour lyrics – straitjacket fits

hey, down in splendour
join the slide
standing on the seash*r*
and the tide
comes rolling through your eyes
you’ve got no place to go
comes rolling through your mind
you’ve got no one to know

hey, down in splendour
take a bow
blinded in the white light
and the crowd
die slowly in your arms
you’re left to lie alone

and save your face of changing colour
and your smile of fading colour
’cause you’ll never know another
who will give you ever after

and you shouldn’t have to say goodbye
and wonder if this way is how
it’s gonna be
and you shouldn’t have to say goodbye
and wonder if this way is how
it’s gonna be

and save your face of changing colour
and your smile of fading colour
’cause you’ll never know another
who will give you ever after

and you shouldn’t have to say goodbye
and wonder if this way is how
it’s gonna be
and you shouldn’t have to say goodbye
and wonder if this way is how
it’s gonna be
and you shouldn’t have to say goodbye
and wonder if this way is how
it’s gonna be.
