lyrics

I try to be so pure just to love you
it’s a long way down
it’s a long way to the ground
I try to be so pure up above you
it’s a way to breathe
and it’s a prayer for you and me

In your fine black veil and your lace now
it’s a long drop down
to the water, to the sea
so try to give me all that is new now
give me bread to break
and give me all your purity

I’ve been waiting for the end of it all
find me in ruins up against the wall
I’ve been waiting for the end of this way
find my little purity we’ll float away

I try to be so pure just to love you
it's a long way around
it's a long way underground
and if I'll be so pure up above you
it's a way to see and
it's a love for you and me

I’ve been waiting for the end of it all
find me in ruins up against the wall
I’ve been waiting for the end of this way
find my little purity we’ll float away

Keep me quiet for a long long time
in the dark part of town where I know you’re mine
never will they find me
never will they find me here
I'll keep quiet for a long long time
in the dark part of town where I know you're mine.
never will they find me
never will they find me
here.
