JUST LIKE YOU


I hold onto my love
Like a soldier holds his gun
In the last hour of the war
Now it’s over

I hold onto my time
Like a sailor hold his breath
In the last moment of life
Now it’s over

I tried so hard to be right
I tried so hard to be right
I tried so hard to be
Just like you

I dreamed I was awake
In a time when dreams were sacred
I dreamed I was alive am I alive
I dreamed I was a snake
In a time when you stood naked
I dreamed that I survived
And I survived

But I tried so hard to be right
I tried so hard to be right
I tried so hard to be
Just like you

We shout out our secrets
In the hope that we’ll be heard
‘cos if no-one is listening
Then this all seems absurd
It’s not our fault the angels
Couldn’t find a way home
It’s not my fault this angel
Rests each night alone

I tried so hard to be right
I tried so hard to be right
I tried so hard to be
Just like you

I hold onto my love
Just like you
