love was still around lyrics – billy talent

love was still around

all late, and right back for your lies
it’s easy to think twice
a choice can change your life

angry fists, angry eyes
got you taken by surprise
and unleash all your demons upon them
with your guns, and your knives
left them fighting for survive
you’re the villain, but you play the victim

never duck, no advice,
did you ever realize
that your violence had taken your virtue
when you can’t wash away
the mistakes of yesterday
when the boys wearing blue
come to greet you

and i can hear the sirens still calling your name
and i can see the ashes rise up from the flames
when love was still around
when love was still around
one day before all came crashing down

said your soft, yellow crack
when your voice inside your head
got so quiet, that you’d hear a pen drop
did you still like the view?
when the guns were aimed at you
screaming out of the house with your hands up
now you wait in the line, for the present bound to charm
singing that f*ck the law, f*ck the law, one
when you dance, every time, you can’t look him in the eyes
why you get all the love that you broken?

and i can hear the sirens still calling your name
and i can see the ashes rise up from the flames
when love was still around
when love was still around
one day before all came crashing down

and i can see the flashing lights take you away
and now the tears are falling down your mother’s face
when love was still around
when love was still around
one day before all came crashing down
when love was still around
when love was still around
someday you’ll see love that you done done

[guitar solo]

and i can hear the sirens still calling your name
and i can see the ashes rise up from the flames
when love was still around
when love was still around
one day before all came crashing down

and i can see the flashing lights take you away
and now the tears are falling down your mother’s face
when love was still around
when love was still around
one day before all came crashing down
when love was still around
when love was still around
one day before all came crashing down
when love was still around
when love was still around
someday you’ll see love that you done done

all late, and right back for your lies
it’s easy to think twice
a choice can change your life.
