when your heirloom's wilted brown
when the devils pushing down
when your morning has a sound
and you hesitate to laugh
how quickly will your joy pass?
how quickly will your joy pass?

and when you walk inside i feel the door
i'll never let it push your arms no more
and when your legs give out just lie right down
and i will kiss you till your breath is found
and when you walk inside i feel the door
i'll never let it push your arms no more

so do you think i came to fight?
and do i always think i'm right?
oh no, i never meant to be, opposed to anyone this time!
oh no, i only meant to be, a friend to everyone this time!

and when you walk inside i feel the door
i'll never let it push your arms no more
and when your legs give out just lie right down
and i will kiss you till your breath is found
and when you walk inside i feel the door
i'll never let it push your arms no more
