Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don't know where I am, I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go

While my mother waters plants, my father loads his gun
He says, "Death will give us back to God
Just like the setting sun
Is returned to the lonesome ocean"

And there's kids playing guns in the street
And one's pointing his tree branch at me
So I put my hands up, I say "enough is enough
If you walk away, I'll walk away"
And he shot me dead

Why are you scared to dream of God?
When it's salvation that you want
See stars that clear have been dead for years
But the idea just lives on

So when you're asked to fight a war that's over nothing
It's best to join the side that's gonna win
And no one's sure how all of this got started
But we're gonna make them goddam certain how its gonna end

But you, but you
You write such pretty words
But life's no story book
Love's an excuse to get hurt

I want a lover I don't have to love
I want a girl who's too sad to give a f-ck
