The Airborne Toxic Event All For A Woman Lyrics

All of these grateful looks

All these grateful eyes

All these furious stares, these fretful sighs

Promising everything

To everyone

“We’ll be back soon,

You’re my favorite one”

“I’ll keep it quiet”

“I’ll hold you dear”

The whispering fills the ear

“Tell me you’ll stay,

We would have such fun”

And the lie you don’t need anyone

And the screams, the wails, and the calls

The headiness of the fall

Ten thousand miles from where we began

I fell asleep with a picture in hand

It was all for a woman

You say that you’re grateful for the time alone

Two years away, “No, I don’t miss home”

And someone asks you if you ever think of her

And you smile politely and you demure

But then all at once your head starts to swim

And you can feel her breath on your skin

You find that you stare at the same spot for days

She’s above you, below you in ways

And you’re shivering cold

Like you’re just ten years old

And she’s lying asleep in your bed

And you’re standing beside her

The light from inside her

Filling up the darkness in your head

It was all for a woman

And you’ve drowned in the teasing

You’ve forgotten the reason

The muse inspires the art

You’d give anything for her to say them once more

The words you believed at the start

Ten thousand miles from where it began

Falling asleep with her picture in hand

It was all… it was all

For the look in her eyes

For the promise and the lie of a woman
