Parralox - Tears Run Rings
 

Tears Run Rings

Written by Marc Almond


Verse 1
On heavenly rain
You fell into my life
Unforgettable smile
Unforgettable lies

In the name of the cross
Or a banner of love
With the hand of a friend
Or under a blanket of trust

Chorus
The angels sighed
A little girl cried
The tears run rings around my eyes

Verse 2
We're going to set fire
To the house in my heart
We're going to set fire
To the whole damn world

I don't understand
The wicked things we do
In the name of the good
In the name of the few

Repeat Chorus x2

Verse 3
Don't look up at me
With your innocent smile
When the bed is burning
Around my head

When a war breaks out
It'll be no surprise
Your unforgettable smile
Your unforgettable lies

Chorus 2
And I've got to stop running
To make my start
We've got to get together
Before we fall apart

Verse 4
They're pulling down the old slums
To build the new
They're bringing back the old rules
To please the few

In the name of the cross
Or a banner of love
With the hand of a friend
Or under a blanket of trust

Repeat Chorus x2
Repeat Chorus x2

Verse 5
Pull down the old slums
To build the new
Pull down the love
I built with you

Promise of tomorrow
You never kept
And you try to burn the house down
When I slept

Verse 6
The nation's in disorder
There's chaos in my heart
We've got to get together
Before we fall apart
