Buy You don't know from iTunes

you don't know and
you don't know
how to smile
but you want to tell me
you crossed your heart
and you hope to die
feeling down
and you're waiting for

the sky to lighten
and the spring to come
to hold the hand
of your chosen one
there's no more work
for your devils friends
and all your gifts
will be heaven sent

you won't find answers
in habitual thoughts
those well worn paths
that lie within your mind
like an old route map
of a world that's gone
it's a fruitless search
for a brighter dawn

the sky to lighten
and the spring to come
to hold the hand
of your chosen one
there's no more work
for your devils friends
and all your gifts
will be heaven sent

here's a candle
go spread some light
there's a fighting chance
you'll get some peace tonight
as you gather round
with your group of friends
your heart it grows
and your darkness ends

the sky will lighten
and the spring will come
you'll hold the hand
of your chosen one
there'll be no more work
for your devils friends
and all your gifts
will be heaven sent

you don't know and
you don't know
how to smile
but you want to tell me
you crossed your heart
and you hope to die

feeling down
but you're waiting for me
