This Misfortune

from by Hotel Cinema

lyrics

Keep me safe
Oh soldier, keep me warm
I've been misled a thousand times before

Through the rain, across the southern states
I've drawn a line I wish I could ignore

Lay back down
The dirt upon your brow is a barricade
and I'm the screaming crowd

Breathing slows
I'm silent cause I know I've played the part
And now the curtain's closed

And maybe if she sang with more than her body, they would listen with their hearts
She falls short of every dream she once had, fleeting one by one from this misfortune

Used to play and weave through every day along the path of ageless beauty
I came here, saw new amounts of fear through the doors of desperation

And maybe if she sang with more than her body, they would listen with their hearts
She falls short of every dream she once had, fleeting one by one from this misfortune

Scared to reconcile, I'll sit here for a while
…every inch of this bed has held my head.

And maybe if she sang with more than her body, they would listen with their hearts
She falls so short of every dream she once had, fleeting one by one from this misfortune
