Music and lyrics by Alex Karlinsky
Vocals by Sharon Chidersky


Something faded, something jaded
Something lost so long ago
If you need to lie I'll take it
Cause I don't want to be alone

Secrets kept in hidden chambers
Where dark meets comfort and regret
I'm sick of this hunt, tired of the fight
Lift the veil and draw me out

I need it to hurt, I need it to heal
I need you to turn back
And tell me you're real
I need it the most, deep in the night
I'm trading these chains
For the blue in your eyes

I don't want to write a memoir
I'm not interested in fame
When the night falls on us
There's a certain relief
That stops me from going insane

You think I owe you the credit
For trading comfort with desire
It's a dangerous road, give it all that I've got
We might be lost but I'm not ready to lose
