Lyrics

Ask me no questions and I'll tell you, I'll tell you no lies
When all's said and done, does it really matter who's wrong or right?
Don't ask me for a reason, I can't explain why we hurt one another again and again
So, as I lie bleeding here, I still, still reach for you

A thousand days, a thousand days
Have passed away
A thousand days, a thousand days
Were captured in her eyes

Your eyes are open now, but you know, it's still hard to see inside
When action and intention are two seperate things, oh no
Now I wish I could explain why we hurt one another again and again
Like someone on his dying breath, I still, still reach for you

A thousand days, a thousand days
Have passed away
A thousand days, a thousand days
Were captured in her eyes

Forever, we've been
Trapped by our hearts
Trapped by our minds
I'd like to leave
I'd like to win at love

But I just can't let it go
And I just can't watch it slipping away
And I just can't let it go
And I just can't stand another minute

Maybe now, someday our shattered lives will mend themselves again
But now, a million miles away, I still wish for you
And I somehow know, I can't explain why we hurt one another again and again
Like someone on his dying dreath, I still, still reach for you

A thousand days, a thousand days
Oooooh yeah
A thousand days, a thousand days
