sirens lyrics – angels & airwaves

“sirens”

there’s a weakness in the window
place my footprints in the dark room
there’s lonely voices like a scarecrow
in the hallway like a lost ghost
in the bedroom i see a shadow
from the moon with light from a candle
on a bed-frame lies a girl
her reflection in the mirror

ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
i like your eyes wide
ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
i’ve been knocking at your backdoor
ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
nervous like a knife fight
ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
be careful what you ask for

i do this from time to time
where i can never wake from a bad dream (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
when i can never say the things i mean (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i like to watch you as you sleep (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i like to think of you with me

it’s a dark night on the west coast
then a soft breeze as the sun rose
then the phone rang like a gunshot
like a siren on the beach rock
there’s a message at the river
a certain package here to the deliver
when the day breaks after nightfall
i will be there, you know i will

ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
i like your eyes wide
ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
i’ve been knocking at your backdoor
ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
nervous like a knife fight
ladada dadada dadada dadala dada
be careful what you ask for

i do this from time to time
where i can never wake from a bad dream (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
when i can never say the things i mean (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i like to watch you as you sleep (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i like to think of you with me (from time to time)

i can hear you breathe,
i’m feeling the shake
and the sound of my heartbeat
can’t let go…
do you know
i’m feeling the pain
of my first love?
i won’t let it go…
can’t let go

i do this from time to time
where i can never wake from a bad dream (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i can never say the things i mean (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i like to watch you as you sleep (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i want to taste you as you breathe (from time to time)

i do this from time to time
where i can never wake from a bad dream (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i can never say the things i mean (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i like to watch you as you sleep (from time to time)
i do this from time to time
where i like to think of you with me (from time to time)
