Arlington Lyrics

Army Of Me – Arlington Lyrics

Just across the river there's a place I've often been
Where lay rest the warriors and brave young men
I've heard gorgeous stories about times long past
Preserved in memories more fragile than glass

On and on
Here I go to my rest
That long repose
That never ending bed

Arlington, I tried and I tried
But the more that I seek you
The more that you hide
Arlington, and it scares you to death
You act like love and suffering
Are two strangers who've just met

Just across the river there's a hillside covered in white stone
I'm fighting a world war with myself to win a love of my own
Just then she walks away and I know just where she goes
She's gone to Arlington to dig another one of them damned holes

Arlington, I tried and I tried
Just to reach you love
But I heard no reply
Arlington, your face set like stone
With a spine of flesh
And a heart that's made of bone

It's a shame
Arlington, I'll be back here again
I go where you go
'Cause I've been where you've been
It's a desperate place
