Verse 162002 - A strain of vocal chord on my velvet pillow

When I'm awfully low
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
and the way you look tonight

cause I'm a voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child baby
I want to say one more last thing
I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to ya one of these days

I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down

We're goin down, and you can see it too
We're goin down , and you know that we're doomed
my dear
we're slow dancing in a burnin' room

Don't you think we oughta know by now
Don't you think we shoulda learned somehow

No change, I can't change
I can't change, I can't change
But I'm here in my mind, I am here in my mind
And I'm a million different people
from one day to the next

I am Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I’m right
I swear I knew it all along

I can be the moodiest baby and you've never met anyone
Who is as negative as I am sometimes

And if you're frightened
You can be frightened
You can be, it's OK

But if I didn't say it well I'd still have felt it,
where's the sense in that?

You're a part time lover and a full time friend
The monkey on your back is the latest trend
I don't see what anyone can see, in anyone else
But you

And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

A tiny flame inside my hand
A compromise I never planned
Unravel out the finer strands

Take out of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take our all your so called problems
Better put them in quotations

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying

We're too young to fall asleep
To cynical to speak
We are losing it
Can't you tell?

Always the summers are slipping away
Find me a way for making it stay

And I'm looking at a blank page now
Should I fill it up with words somehow?

Well it goes like this :
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

You see everything
You see every part
You see all my light and you love my dark
You dig everything of which I'm ashamed
There's not anything to which you can't relate
And you're still here

I will go down with this ship and I won't put my hands up and surrender

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be.
There will be an answer, let it be.

Thank you, Lyricists of the world. I bow before thee.
