True love is a rose
Behind glass that's locked and kept closed
Maybe just for me
'cos my soul's been attacked
And shattered by tough love, bad love
I bought mine on the street
True love it just can't be beat
I felt so complete
Married to heavenly bodies above
And each night i'd look up
At a bright honeymoon
'cos it sure seemed built to last
And even after my honeymoon passed
I kept right on it man
Like a ghost
To the house it was haunting
Day after day
I'd steal with my true love away
To some hide out left undisturbed
We could do what we wanted
But i started to feel like a liar
Saying i love you
Mad in love and at me
There's no in between
Came on and on
I found you can't make a stand
I'm her hired hand
I have to do harm
One day i got sick
She played me a nasty old trick
Said i need cigarettes
Walked round the block
Caught a cab
Stayed gone for too long
And my love had gotten so strong
Just to try being back on my own
I had to go to rehab
All i need is a safe place to bleed
Is this where it's at
Having no chance
Steps in a dance
Your whole life's been in combat
Now i'm the king of the ward
'cos i'm good and i swallow my sword
And puke it out
For the doctors to write a new prescription
Tranquil as a dove
People that have lost their true love
All seem to fit the same description
I feel cold, useless and old
I wish i was no one
Take me home my love
Take me home today
Take me out of this place
Take me home with you today
