substitute for love lyrics – arid

i traded fame for love
without a second thought
it all became a silly game
some things cannot be bought
got exactly what i asked for
wanted it so badly
running, rushing back for more
i suffered fools so gladly
and now i find
i’ve changed my mind

the face of you
subst*tute for love
subst*tute for love
should i wait for you?
subst*tute for love
subst*tute for love

i traveled round the world
looking for a home
i found myself in crowded rooms
feeling so alone
had so many lovers
who settled for the thrill
of basking in my spotlight
i never felt
so happy

the face of you
subst*tute for love
subst*tute for love
should i wait for you?
subst*tute for love
subst*tute for love

no famous faces, far off places
trinkets i can buy
no handsome stranger, heady danger
drug that i can try
no ferris wheel, no heart to steal
no laughter in the dark
no one night stand, no far off land
no fire that i can spark

the face of you
subst*tute for love
subst*tute for love
should i wait for you?
subst*tute for love
subst*tute for love

no famous faces, far off places
trinkets i can buy
no handsome stranger, heady danger
drug that i can try
no ferris wheel, no heart to steal
no laughter in the dark
no one night stand, no far off land
no fire that i can spark

the face of you
subst*tute for love
subst*tute for love
should i wait for you?
subst*tute for love
subst*tute for love

this is my religion
