lyrics

welcome to earth
welcome to pain
welcome to lust and lies
and hearts that are full of dirt

I'll play the fool
and you'll play the odds
and I'll count the cost of being up this creek alone

'cause I chose love
over loving you
now the ground is crying out
beneath my shoes

sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door
sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door

I play these rooms
for the finest of men
and still nothing compares
to singing my heart to you

I'll pay the cost
I'll take the pain
just to keep your heart
on my mind

we're only as sick
as our darkest of secrets
and I'm OK to take a few pills
each day

sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door
sleep won't bring us the rest we're longing for
cause if I close my eyes all I see is that open door

sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to
sleep is never close enough to you

your eyes, they tie me to your bedpost
your lips, they sink me into repose
sleep will never be the same again
