THE ARROWS lyrics - Lonely Soldiers

THE ARROWS
"Lonely Soldiers"

Your eyes open slowly it's mid afternoon
Your ears still ringing some electric tune
Facing a wall and feet to the floor it's time to start again
So do we pick things up from where we left off
So impossibly cool can really be tough
And you feel too tired to notice how you are

So won't somebody turn *off the night please*
I need some sleep

Oh you're such a winner you blow us away
You're so so funny when you dance that way
Everybody laughs we can't get enough
In fact we can't seem to stop
Until the morning *counts down relentlessly*
But brushing your teeth and shoes on the leave
Hopscotch to the car happiness can't be far from here

So won't somebody turn *off the night please*
I need some sleep
This morning's just breaking my heart *well I have seen*
And the last thing I need is to pick on these scabs
And hope that they bleed me a bit of *hurt* and
Don't judge me you don't know where I've been
Oh oh no you don't

So tonight only the lonely know
Oh the fight
The lonely soldiers know they'll be
Raving the night with their strongest defense
Independent indifference ******
Hearts so torn just to keep moving on

Won't someone just *turn off the night* please
I need some sleep
This morning's just breaking my heart *with oh I have seen*

And the last thing I need is to pick on these scabs
And hope that they bleed me a bit of *hurt* and
Don't judge me you don't at all where I've been

I know you'd like it if I went to church with you
There's just some other things that I'd rather do I know
God's alive I just don't know what he wants from me.
