New Model Army

New Model Army - Turn Away

rate me

The candle flickers and the shadows move distorted on the wall

There's a wire slowly stretching

And now you ask him all the questions, the same ones as before

But you know that he is lying

And with your arms around him now, you're begging please

But he moves towards the open door

And you find you're screaming 'no'

But something breaks this time, you find you cannot move

Is it wrong to let him walk into the water?

Close your eyes for just one moment

You get so tired the endless days of watching over

And is it wrong as the waves boil up to greet him

To turn away - he disappears into the tide

All your love it cannot save him

All your love it cannot save him

And everybody holds a secret that draws them with its breath

The one that will destroy them

Oh, the warming glow of poison - it's so easy going down

Just to spite the days of reason

Oh, my abandoned child, we'll both end up as fools

I can see it in your craving eyes that I cannot hold you

All the warning shots will be lost and drowned

In the roar of the crashing waves

And is it wrong to let you walk into the water?

Close my eyes for just one moment

I get so tired the endless days of watching over

And is it wrong as the waves boil up to greet you

To turn away - you disappears into the tide

All my love it cannot save you

All my love it cannot save you
