ANDY BELL lyrics - As I Prepare To Take My Life

ANDY BELL
"As I Prepare To Take My Life"
(Ashton / Frost)

As I prepare to take my life
As I prepare for this final long knife night
Like a Kristallnacht for a lost, dark soul
A requiem for the belief
Every hole's a goal

We are better parted
We are better parted
We are better parted
Better parted

As I prepare to take my life
As I disengage before an ending I won't like
All the rejection I prophecised
From the arc of our eyes meet
To this estranged bitter goodbye

We are better parted
We are better parted
We are better parted
Better parted

The only testament
That I will leave
Is a strong sense
That dreams are often not achieved
In my death-note diary
A tome of cries for help
A jealous bitter threnody
Of years spent without you

All the years spent without you
The years spent without you
All the years spent without you
You and your wildly different point of view

We are better parted
We are better parted
We are better parted
Better parted
Better parted

Something of the darkness blackened all my days
Beyond anything Prozac could take away
Sweet tormenting dreams of beauty
Seems mourning you became my tour of duty
As I prepare to take my life
Be happy you were once the crack
That let in light

There was no-one only ever you
Romantic, sycophant, stalker or fool
Take your point of view
It's just that you
Let in light
Let in light
Let in light
