lyrics

Forever Nights of Winter

over the hill and over the edge
standing at the ruins of a broken pledge
my heart is the gun my smile is the badge
where'd ya go my friend?
gonna go to a place where I can't be found
cause its so cold in this dirty town
gonna get so high till I fall down
gonna plant my face in the frozen ground

I remember dancing on the floor with you
(on these forever nights of winter)
our bodies shaking through and through
(on these forever nights of winter)
and its killing me and its killing you
(on these forever nights of winter)
cause I'm still singing songs for you
on these forever nights of winter

I've got the sex, the fire, the soul
cocaine, guitars and rock n' roll
but this storm is stronger than us both
two lovers fall
so now I sit inside this room
by my own darkness all consumed
trying to break out of my tomb
I break the silence with this tune

I remember laughing in the streets with you
(on these forever nights of winter)
our bones are frozen black n' blue
(on these forever nights of winter)
I'd tear my heart out and give it to you
(on these forever nights of winter)
cause I'm still painting portraits of you
on these forever nights of winter

its a cold, cold night with no end in sight
there ain't no stars, there ain't no light
its a mighty wind, a forever storm
the waves are breaking on the shore
and if I was to swim to you
to brave the tide would I make through?
or would the sea swallow me before
I could leave my songs upon your shore

was it a lie when I told you then
that you could be my forever friend?
we had the drinks and we had the times
so how did it end?
it is a lie that love can conquer all
the earth still quakes when mountains fall
cause time will always take its toll
when its all night with booze and blow

I remember falling on the ground with you
(on these forever nights of winter)
drunk, rowdy and high, and actin' a fool
(on these forever nights of winter)
and its killing me and its killing you
(on these forever nights of winter)
cause I changed for me but not for you
on these forever nights of winter
