I've got some walls around me too
But they're not much compared to your house
Fifty feet high with barbed wire
Guards on the top, aiming rifles
At your lovers one by one and friends too

I've come with hands above my head
But I'm damned if I'll try to break your door down
If you ever come out just call me
I'll still be armed with the memory
Of one evening when you smiled at something

Sadness spreads like a black stain
But I know by now that's not all there is

There's a blue flame inside of you
So beautiful and rare
Love's not something we decide to do
You'd be so hard to love, if love was not just there

You tell me women get you down
And as for men, well, they're all bastards
I wonder what world you call home
And I wish I could learn their language
Just enough to make you laugh, just one time

Yes, it was nice to see you too
Although I'm never sure you mean it
I pick up the tab and you won't thank me
Not that I mind, but in my dreams
It's all so different, we even kiss, imagine this

Bitterness is a black hole
Don't you know by now, you've got more to give

There's a blue flame inside of you
So beautiful and rare
Love's not something we decide to do
You'd be so hard to love, if love was not just

There's a blue flame inside of you
So beautiful and rare
Love's not something we decide to do
You'd be so hard to love, if love was not just there

Impossible to love
If love was not for some strange reason there
