In Love But Not At Peace Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Love took a long time, it followed me here
And it landed on light feet, and it whispered in my ear
Love spoke of my past as a valuable test
And smiled, and said she who loves last loves best

'Cause you know life is hard, but now you also know your mind
So now you're going out to love, but on your own side this time
Where you still think of famine, and you still dig up train fare
And you won't mind the wrinkles, 'cause you know how they got there
In love but not at peace, in love but not at peace

Once for me, love was the boat inside of a bottle, it felt like a gondola ride
When you float with the nicknack's, and you don't hear a sound
Where the fish never lived, and you don't miss the ground
Then the moon hangs above like a Valium pill

And I say I'll be fine, but I don't think that I will
But today I got work, and I like it that way
It's a case of a still life gone cine a verit
In love but not at peace, in love but not at peace

And I still need the beauty of words sung and spoken
And I live with the fear that my spirit will be broken
And that's the way I thought it would be
That's the way I always wanted it to be

So I'll keep you wondering what time I'm arriving
You drive me crazy with your backseat driving
And I'll talk in my sleep and you'll steal all the covers
We'll argue it out and we'll call ourselves lovers

And I'll stay in my body and you'll stay in your own
'Cause we know that we're born and we're dying alone
So turn out the light while the sirens are screaming
And we kiss for the waking, and then join the dreaming
In love, but not at peace, in love, but not at peace
