Rather be alone

from by Steepways

lyrics

If the snake eats its tail and the skys weep with flame
The prophets are forgotten and the wind just howls pain
I would know, that you, you’d rather stand aside

If the birds all fell silent and I promised you the same
Could you forgive a sinner again and again
But I know, that you, you’d rather be alone

I know that you would rather be alone
I know that you would rather be alone

In the days of wine and roses when we sailed on a gentle sea
I might have promised you my heartbeats, the beats that set me free
But I don’t know, half of the words I scream at you my love.

I know that you would rather be alone
I know that you would rather be alone

Nothing last forever. Nothing stays the same
Looking at it bluntly would you do it again?
But I don’t know, if we, we ever really change

I know that you would rather be alone
I know that you would rather be alone
