about

Recorded June 2009 at the Funkhaus in Berlin, Germany.

lyrics

I spent the nights with the alcoholics
I took the money with a Judas kiss
I was in love before and all it promised
But it was never like this, it was never like this
Something took a hold, pulling me on for tomorrow

Chorus:
I saw a light above your head
And felt the waves beneath your bed
I saw a light above your head
I reach out, I’m home

I watched the years disappear in sadness
I felt the knife and the same mistakes
I was in love and thought there’d be no other
I wasn’t counting on this
I never counted on this
Something took a hold, pulling me on for tomorrow

Pulling me on, yes you're pulling me on
Pulling me on, yes you're pulling me on
Something took a hold, pulling me on for tomorrow

Chorus
Chorus
