lyrics

Like Christmas and the seasons
It keeps on coming 'round.
The fragile tower we built up
All comes crashing down.

Clouds gather in the distance
The wind's announcing trouble
And all that's left for us to do
Is to clear away the rubble.

The rooms are getting emptier
And it's all wasting away,
But sometimes a sudden death
Is better than a lingering decay.

And it's so hard to hold yourself up
And keep yourself alive
When you depend on someone else
And all you get is lies.

I tried to put my faith in you
Now I don't believe a word
And everything you swore was true
I'll pretend I never heard.

Now we're sifting through the wreckage
And scraping off the rust
But just perhaps there'll be a diamond
Buried in amongst the dust.

Sometimes sometimes precious
Is worthless to someone else
And when it all gets thrown away
You lose a small piece of yourself.

And it's so hard to hold yourself up
And keep yourself alive
When you depend on someone else
And all you get is lies.

Sometimes sometimes precious
Is worthless to someone else
And when it all gets thrown away
You lose a small piece of yourself.
