For One Moment Lyrics

The hurt I hurt
Is nothing like
The hurts I've hurt before
The things I feel
Do not feel
Like things I've felt before

And the loneliness and the emptiness
And the hopelessness are fine
'Cause sometimes my cloudy brain remembers
For one moment you were mine

The pain that pains
Is not the pain
That pained my heart before
The tears I tear
Are not the tears
My eyes have teared before

And the loneliness and the helplessness
And the uselessness are fine
'Cause sometimes my cloudy brain remembers
For one moment you were mine

Just Good Friends
Drawing back the curtains
Sluggish city daylight in the afternoon
Here's that special silence
Just before you walk out of the hotel room
Each time we're so close I assume
That we'll never be again
Oh, how long must we pretend?

A casual affair
Was all that you could spare
From your emotional change
A calendar of greetings
Strangers on the street
The best we've ever arranged

Now I just can't stand all the pain
All the constant break and mend
Oh, how long can we pretend
That we're just good friends?

I gave you my devotion
Hiding nothing up my sleeve
If I walked clean out of your life
Would you even notice me?
So much tangled up emotion
Should I stay or should I go?
If I walked clean out of your life
How long would it take you to know?
Are we such good friends?

And how sordid this has become
As the means approach the end
And how long can we pretend?

I gave my devotion
Hiding nothing up my sleeve
If I walked clean out of your life
Would you even notice me?
So much tangled up emotion
Should I stay or should I go?
If I walked clean out of your life
How long would it take you to know?
If I walked clean out of your life
How long would it take you to know?
Are we still good friends?

Untitled
Out on the street again
Playing with the rain
And a friend is walking away
Life in a strange hotel
And an endless hell
Thinking of things I wanted to say

We over-played the game
And we're playing with pain
And the black inside is turning white with the rain
And the smiles are down
And the feelings are fine
It's hard to make the sun shine

Its such a shame
When I'm out in the rain
All the curtains are closed
Its a sad scene I know
I try not to care
That I'm going nowhere
See it slide down the drain
Washed away with the rain

I'm walking in the night
And I feel like a tiger loose
In a room full of fools
And its hurting inside
This feeling of pride
Looking for somewhere to run and hide
Life's on a merry-go-'round
Its the same old sad sound
And its happened again as it happened before
And the smiles are down and the feelings are fine
It's hard to make the sun shine

Its such a shame
When I'm out in the rain
All the curtains are closed
Its a sad scene I know
I try not to care
That I'm going nowhere
See it slide down the drain
Washed away with the rain

Only the lonely need to be lonely
Learn to be lonely, try to be lonely
Somebody told me only the lonely
Only the lonely need to be lonely
Love to be lonely, try to be lonely
Somebody told me only the lonely
I'm such a lonely boy

Almost Diamonds
You kissed my grateful skin
And left a chain of bites and bruises
I'm sorry when you grin
Almost diamonds for the losers
I'll swim inside your tears
And wander through your rooms of silence
The motive crystal clear
Your tongue is love
And your heart is violence

Almost Diamonds
Scratched perfection
Almost diamonds
Tears in glycerine

I spied you kissing her
You faked your love
My broken brother
Everybody burn
Secrets spill and smiles are smothered
You have to roll the dice
Pain is two
And fire is sixes
Vengeance feels nice
I know the shine
Behind your tricks is

Almost diamonds
Scratched perfection
Almost diamonds
Tears in glycerine

Who would have thought
It would end like this
You gave a stranger
A dangerous kiss
Now your pretty eyes
Say these precious lies
We're just beautiful imitations

They were
Almost diamonds
Scratched perfection
Almost diamonds
Tears in glycerine

Catch our teardrops
As they fall
You know we nearly
Had it all
Fallen tears of glycerine
Gone is all of what we dream
Almost diamonds
Scratched perfection
Dark reflections
Love won't find us
Only in dreams

Barriers
Barriers
Searching through the memory books
Of photographs your lovers took
Why play the game of place the pain
When you end up feeling just the same
Anyway...

Sleep comes so slowly now
So hard to keep the eyelids down
And you're hoping soon to drown the sound
Of a voice you know that whispers in
Your mind...

Oh, it was a sad, sad day
The day you turned away
And there was nothing in your eye
You had told me once you found it impossible
To cry...

I know you've been there and back
I've been there too
But it was never really deep in you
To do those things you had to do...

And in your sleepy bedroom eyes
I saw the signs
And I lay awake all night
In the cold
Until the light burned my side
And there was nothing
There was nothing anymore...

And there was nothing
Not a feeling
As you glanced back from the door...

Move away to find another place
That illustrates your point of view
Surrounded by the little things
That re-assure
That reflect you...

Ooooo and there was nothing
And there was nothing in my heart
And there was nothing in my head
The light in your eyes is changing all the time
And I still have your smile
Burned into my mind...
