Wound Lyrics

by Smashing Pumpkins

There you are as you always were
In bathing light and naked blur
You're a part of me, eternal one
By grand design and setting sun

If you wait, I will wait
Taste, I will taste
If you love, I will love
Run, I will run to my last breath

Last night I turned around
And thought I saw myself turning
Inside the strangest dream
Of life unloved and cities burning

Awake in my arms
You cry unharmed
Our age of the hours
While they still devour all

So take it all, I doubt if we
Will know it's gone 'cause we've been here
Since time began, begged God awake
And make these plans

Wound opens
Reveal this broken man
And soon there's notions
Of blood on his hands

If you wait, I will wait
Taste, I will taste
If you love, I will love
Run, I will run to my last breath

Last night I turned around
I thought I saw myself turning
Last night I turned around
I thought I watched the world ending
Inside the crushing down
I felt a pang the tide was turning

Destroyed in the wake
The jealous ingrates
Who'll tear this world down
To spite God above
With his own love
With his own love

If you wait, if you wait
If you wait, I will wait
Taste, I will taste
If you love, I will Love
Run, I will run to my last breathe
