lyrics

Why can’t you see you’re smothering me
I can’t be everything that you need
But oh though I know that our love’s up and flown
You won’t believe that you still want me

Sometimes I see behind your eyes
The thoughts flashing past
You know this won’t last
In truth you and I are so distant
And why I didn’t see it before
I let you into my heart
I don’t know

Why you can’t see you’re nothing to me
You’ll never be anything to me
But oh though I know it seems I just can’t let go
I still believe you could be something to me

It seems like I just can’t help the way
I feel when I see
You glancing at me
And though I know it’s not real why I still
Want to know what’s behind
Your deep haunting eyes
I don’t know



Why we keep dancing around ourselves
Our souls entwined
I can’t unwind from your love

Sometimes I see behind your eyes
The thoughts flashing past
You know this won’t last
In truth you and I are so distant
And why I didn’t see it before
I let you into my heart
I don’t know
It seems like I just can’t help the way
I feel when I see
You gazing at me
And though I know it’s not real why I still
Want to know what’s behind
Your deep haunting eyes
I don’t know

about

Leadlight Rose are a unique combination of musical light and shade, with the sharp contrast of vocalist Ellah Rose's powerfully beautiful voice against the group's dark, intricate rhythms and lust for all things melodic and heavy.
