lyrics

Lyrics:

She's a gambler spinning wheels
A poison victim but look of steel
The coldest hearts you've ever felt
The coldest hands you've ever held

Taking down on your way
A million miles, still no headway
As I learn to live long
In a mind I'm proud to roam

She's elusive and I'm awake
You're finally real, there's nothing fake
A mystery now to me and you
Open my eyes and I'm next to you
She said my destiny lies in the hands that set me free

Reckless night, she hears me breathe
Cursing the sky at this company
They lost the wisdom deep inside
When bitterness shows its side

If it's true, I am doomed
What more is there to hold on to?
A strand of her hair is all I own
A gift to me, this sorry soul

She's elusive and I'm awake
You're finally real, there's nothing fake
A mystery now to me and you
Open my eyes and I'm next to you
She said my destiny lies in the hands that set me free

The sun in sails and this ain't right
There's more to her than meets the eye
She comes and goes at any time
Back in my head at another time

She's elusive and I'm awake
You're finally real, there's nothing fake
A mystery now to me and you
Open my eyes and I'm next to you
She said my destiny lies in the hands that set me free
