"Don't look, don't look," the shadows breathe
Whispering me away from you
Don't wake at night to watch her sleep
You know that you will always lose
This trembling, adored, tousled bird mad girl

But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again

"Oh don't talk of love," the shadows purr
Murmuring me away from you
Don't talk of worlds that never were
The end is all that's ever true
There's nothin' you can ever say
Nothin' you can ever do

Still every night I burn
Every night I scream your name
Every night I burn
Every night the dream's the same

Every night I burn
Waiting for my only friend
Every night I burn
Waiting for the world to end

"Just paint your face," the shadows smile
Slipping me away from you
Oh it doesn't matter how you hide
Find you if we're wanting to
So slide back down and close your eyes
Sleep awhile, you must be tired

But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again

Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow black dream

Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow black dream

Dream the crow black dream
Dream the crow black dream
Dream the crow black dream
Dream the crow black dream
