lyrics

The night by the fire
Where the air turned still and stark
I cut down through the valley
Towards desires twisted mark

There was danger amongst the buildings
And fear within the wind
And still we all followed reluctantly
Through the beauty of her grin

And the jokers told their stories
The gambling wheel was in place
And who was in luck tonight?
Well I followed just in case

Oh if It was mine
And you will find and you will find
That all that comes is for nothing in the end

In the end, in the end
But don’t wait for the day of doom to crawl around
Crawl around
It was profound, so obscene
Oh you’ve always got a reason
And you always create a scene

Because you never know, who you want to be
When you crave something, and it’s a thousand loves you see
And you know and you know and you know that life ain’t a breeze
Because you never know just who you want to be
Oh who you want to be

The day of desire
Where the sun pierced the sea
I ravaged through the bushes
To where I thought she would be

I ventured towards the station
The road to slavery and loss
And she cast a spell on freedom
And we loved without a cost

And she held her necklace purely
Her smirk was velvet worn
She left me feeling reluctant
For our hearts she had torn

But it ain’t a crime
And you will find and you will find
That all that comes is for nothing in the end

In the end, in the end
But don’t wait for the day of doom to crawl around
Crawl around
It was profound, so obscene
Oh you’ve always got a reason
And you always create a scene

Because you never know who you want to be
When you crave something, and it’s a thousand loves you see
And you know and you know and you know that life ain’t a breeze
Because you never know just who you want to be
Who you want to be

oh
Because you’re the fabric of a beautiful mind
Because you’re the fabric of a beautiful mind
Because you’re the fabric of a beautiful mind
Because you’re the fabric of a beautiful mind
Because you’re the fabric of a beautiful mind

Because you never know who you want to be
When you crave something, and it’s a thousand loves you see
And you know and you know and you know that life ain’t a breeze
Because you never know just who you want to be
Who you want to be
