lyrics

The wounds on your hands never seem to heal

I thought all I needed was to believe

Here am I, a lifetime away from you

The blood of christ, or the beat of my heart

My love wears forbidden colours

My life believes

Senseless years thunder by

Millions are willing to give their lives for you

Does nothing live on?

Learning to cope with feelings aroused in me

My hands in the soil, buried inside of myself

My love wears forbidden colours

My life believes in you once again

I'll go walking in circles

While doubting the very ground beneath me

Trying to show unquestioning faith in everything

Here am I, a lifetime away from you

The blood of Christ, or a change of heart

My love wears forbidden colours

My life believes

My love wears forbidden colours

My life believes in you once again

No autotune - EVER!

You may notice I use lots of harmonies in vocal overdubs, but it is always just my voice with maybe some echo and a little bit of reverb!!!!!
