    Lyrics

    Hey
    Hey yeah uh

    Sheets of empty canvas
    Untouched sheets of clay
    Were laid spread out before me
    As her body once did

    Oh, all five horizons
    Revolved around her soul
    As the Earth to the sun
    Now the air I've tasted and breathed
    Has taken a turn

    Ooh oh, and all I taught her was
    Everything
    Ooh oh, I know she gave me all that she wore

    And now my bitter hands
    Chafe beneath the clouds
    Of what was everything
    Oh, the pictures have
    All been washed in black
    Tattooed everything

    I take a walk outside
    I'm surrounded by some kids at play, yeah
    I can feel their laughter
    So why do I sear?

    Ooh huh, and twisted thoughts that spin
    'Round my head
    I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
    How quick the sun can
    Drop away

    And now my bitter hands
    Cradle broken glass
    Of what was everything
    All the pictures have
    All been washed in black
    Tattooed everything

    All the love gone bad
    Turned my world to black
    Tattooed all I see, all that I am
    All I will be, yeah

    Uh-huh
    Uh-huh
    Woo

    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
    I know you'll be a star
    In somebody else's sky
    But why, why, why can't it be
    A-can't it be mine?
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Ah ha hey
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Ooh
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Oh ah yeah
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Uh ooh hoo

    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)

    Ah hey
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Ha ha
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Ha ha yeah ha
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Ha ha ha ha ha yeah hey yeah

    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Yeah
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Yeah yeah
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Ah hey yeah
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, hoo)
    Ah ha, ah ha

    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
    Ha hoo hoo
    (Ooh hoo) Ooh
    (Ooh hoo) Ooh yeah uh huh
    (Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo) Hoo
