Lyrics Print

Why not give it all for love
Toss it out the back seat of your life
Could you ever get enough
Wanted dead or alive

I'm a street sweeper dustin up the streets
I should carry love away
Store it up somewhere out by the sea
To cash it in one day

I'm a banker counting out the bills
Keep them back where it is safe
I'll retire in shapeless golden fields
Leave my debt erased

I'm a postman standing in the street
I can send my love away
Words in meter calculate receipt
Until her dying day

When a big grey hound came and swept her off her feet
I stood standing in the rain
If love is red my heart is blind
To the light of love's remains
To the light of love's remains

Why not give it all for love
All my peers will soon decide
Guilty until the day
All these gates are opened wide

I catch stray dogs nippin at my heels
I just carry them away
Is this love is this some big deal
Am I guilty or just afraid

I decrypt metaphysical laws
Can my love be sent away
Who can justify the times I fall
Love's black and white is grey

I hunt foxes chase them if I can
Let my rifle set the pace
There was one who watched me as I ran
But she was swiped from grace

When a big grey hound came and swept her off her feet
I stood standing in the rain
If love is red my heart is blind
To the light of love's remains
To the light of love's remains

I
Close my eyes
Close my eyes
Close my eyes
The light
