life effect lyrics – stars

sorry for wasting your time
five long months on a telephone line
i was asking if you were fine
and saying i was fine too.

sorry but i’ve got to go
the birth was quick but the death was slow
there was so much i didn’t know
so much i didn’t know about you.

and so we disconnect, the room goes quiet around us
it’s called the life effect, will it always surround us?

who made you happy last night?
i don’t know his name but christ can he fight
as i fell he told me you had a light
a light that shone inside you

i found myself a decent man now
i love him because i care
the bravest that i’ve ever been, was when i ran away from you.

and so we disconnect, the room goes quiet around us
it’s called the life effect, will it always surround us?
and so we disconnect, the room goes quiet around us
nothing left to protect, the end has finally found us.

the day’s almost over, it’s almost time for bed
somebody finally loves me, rest your weary head.
