lyrics

The night in the park with my face pressed in your shirt
The moon stretched out its hands to where our feet kicked up the dirt.
Your hands spoke in tongues and they brought my heart aglow.
And the moon watched as our love defied the idle god of snow.
/=/
It wasn’t long before time whisked me back to the grind
But I never was able to get that night off of my mind.
So I rid my own hypocrisy, and left that god behind.
And I chose the spot beside you to keep myself in line.

It’s head versus heart and it’s tearing me apart
I know that without you I wouldn’t have come this far But
I’ve taken my cross off. Promises all but dead.
And now my heart and head won’t let me go to bed.

Head versus heart doesn’t matter in the afterglow.
The afterglow.

The cool sheets wrapped around us hold me like a cocoon
Only revealed to the world by light from the moon.
On paris mountain, you carved your words on my heart of stone
Like holy words from wrinkled papers now bound in bone.
/=/
In wrinkled papers and bloody sheets, in both I can’t abide
Without His loving followers decide to pass me by.
Many struggle to understand truth behind lies, But
Now that we have been I see the world with different eyes

It’s head versus heart and it’s tearing me apart
I know that without you I wouldn’t have come this far But
I’ve taken your watch off. Promises all but dead.
And now my heart and head won’t let me go to bed.

Winter comes with all its sleet to freeze me in the snow.
We use the dark to hide ourselves from trouble in the road.
But this is not the world that we were born to live inside.
I think we all know something’s wrong or is it in my mind?
/=/
It wasn’t long before time whisked me back to the grind
But I haven’t been able to get your face out of my mind.
So I’ll write a new theology, and leave this time behind.
And I’ll sing this song about you to keep what you’ve said in mind.

It’s head versus heart and it’s tearing me apart
I know that without you I wouldn’t have come this far But
I’ve taken my ring off. Promises all but dead.
And now my heart and head won’t let me go to bed.
