Woman, tell me what you want
And I'll calm down without bleeding out
With my broken heart that you stabbed for an hour
Woman, too, I was freaking out because I want you to know

My beloved, you are the lover of my impossible soul
And woman, too, promise you'll stay and put off all your woes
I was bleeding out, too much worry, I could not get you at all
And if you said what you want, I would laugh it off

But I know you won't go, not for either class
Must you write it off for the impossible soul?
And I was in a dream, I was gone away without you but not too slow
For I put it off, lest I put it right for the impossible soul

And all I couldn't sing, I would say it all
My love to you, if I could get you at all
Don't be a wreck, trying to be something that I wasn't at all
Seems I got it wrong, I was chasing after something that was gone

To the black of night, now I know it's not what I wanted at all
I'll say something like, all you want is all the world for yourself
And all I want is the perfect love, though I know it's small
I won't hurt for its soul

And all I couldn't sing, I would say it all
My love to you, if I could get you at all
Oh, oh oh oh, trying to be something that I wasn't at all
Do you want to be afraid? Do you want to be afraid?

For life in the cage where courage's mate runs deep in the waves
For the scariest things are not half as enslaved
Don't be distracted, don't be distracted
Do you want to be alone? Do you want to be alone?

For life isn't stained of righteousness pale
The seed and the hail, all the clouds that have left aren't interested
Don't be distracted, don't be distracted
Do you want to love me more? Do you want to love me more?

For love is the breath
If water and wind is cursed
By the same thing that nurtured its shame
Is it worth all the work?

Don't be distracted, don't be distracted
Have you failed to feel delight?
And have you failed to feel delight?
Instead of the love, lived tired and lost, have you left it at last

Where it floundered its death with the language of ghosts?
Don't be distracted, don't be distracted
Do you want to be afraid? Do you want to be afraid?

For life in the cage where
Where courage's mate runs deep in the waves
For the scariest things are not half as enslaved
Don't be distracted, don't be distracted
