Glorious

(Alternate (live 11/16/01) title/lyrics for Glorious)

[Zwan]

 

Alt. Lyrics

when i'm walking with my love
the world turns its head
i can't hear what they're saying to us
there is no escape

giving up love for what i've said
can't you see we all play dead
and all other thoughts went unspoken
times are good and times are bad
time was all we ever had
and may the circle stay unbroken

tomorrow's too far for me
forever's just out of reach
to live for our destiny

to fall, to fall, glorious
to fall, to fall, glorious
to fall, to fall, glorious
to fall, to fall

and i feel the same
'cause i am the same
and i know the way home
and i've since complained
'cause i am the change
and i will forever and ever be glorious

'cause when i'm walking with my love
across the trails of the dead
may they sing their praises till you
forget what i've said

as i reach to you
in a quiet move
to say

we're giving up love for what i've said
can't you see we all play dead
and our mother's thoughts will go unspoken
times are good and times are bad
time was all i ever had
and may the circle always be glorious

they let me run around
they let me be the one
they forced me underground
they let me speak as their son
they forced their war on me
they led me to believe that i
was glorious

to fall, to fall, glorious
to fall, to fall, glorious
to fall, to fall, glorious
to fall to all, glorious

  Normal Lyrics

so when i'm walking with my love
and the world turns its head
i can't hear what they're saying to us
through all their screams

we're giving up love for what i've said
can't you see we all play dead
and all other thoughts went unspoken
times were good and times were bad
time was all i ever had
and may your circle stay unbroken, glorious

you fall and i fall, glorious
you fall and i fall, glorious
you fall and you fall, glorious
i fall and you fall

when i'm walking with my love
across the trails of the dead
may they sing their praises till you
forget everything i said

then i come to you
in a quiet move
to say

we're giving up love for what i've said
can't you see we all play dead
and all other thoughts went unspoken
times were good and times were bad
time was all i ever had
and may your circle stay unbroken, glorious

you fall and i fall, glorious
you fall and i fall, glorious
you fall and i fall, glorious
you fall and i fall

they let me run around
they forced me to the ground
they played their tricks on me
they led me to believe
there was no prodigal son
[?] become someone though
glorious

and i'll feel the same
'cause i am the same
and i know the way home
and i'll still complain
'cause i am the change
and i'll forever seem glorious

time may not feel as empty
[?]
time may not feel as empty
[?]

glorious, yeah
glorious
it's glorious
it's glorious
glorious, glorious
glorious
