lyrics

If you could know your life would be
Happy after all,
Would you have spent so much of your time trying to stop my fall
and would you
hold me,
just like
you did every night I cried

Save me
Tell me what I am becoming is
What I'm meant to be.

I never knew that I could wear your skin
I never knew that I could plug you in
I never knew that the line separating everything I want from me
Could be so thin

Stars falling down
the Beggar takes the crown
the court bows and kneels
the queen comes to heel
ah-ah ah-ah-ah..

If you could read the omens hanging on the city gates
You'd see the Worm devour the bird
and you would understand
what is real
Strangely
Oddly
Can be too much to believe

Legend
Fiction
Turn around, they're waiting at the door

I never knew that I could wear your skin
I never knew that I could plug you in
I never knew that the line separating everything I want from me
could be
so thin (na na na na na na)

Stars falling down
the Beggar takes the crown
the court bows and kneels
the queen comes to heel
ah-ah ah-ah-ah the queen comes to heel, ah-ah ah-ah-ah
the queen comes
the queen comes
the queen comes
the queen comes to heel
ah-ah ah-ah-ah ah ah-ah-ah

If you could know
what you delivered up to me
If you could know
How you have changed everything
if you could know
the harvest I would reap, would you still say
I'm what I'm meant to be?

I hear the stars are falling down
and now the Beggar's coming 'round
I hear the court is tripping over itself to come to heel
They say they want to make a deal--
the kingdom on a platter
and one by one they scatter
Her Highness should remember me now
I'm calling my favors in

And the people shout
ah-ah ah-ah-ah
And the people sing
ah ah-ah-ah
And the city drowns
ah-ah ah-ah-ah
And the city swims
