lyrics

Love's a liar in an honest kind of way
I'll invite it in, offer it a drink, it takes a seat with
a sense permanence
It says it here to stay.
And I don't know why
I fool myself in thinking it'd be different this time

Love's a vagrant, it's a wanderer.
Still I'll leave the light on,
even if I think that I'll get hurt.

All of my life grief has never been a fair weather friend.
If I'm a top of the world,
or if I think I just hit rock bottom

It says it here to stay.
And I don't know why
I fool myself in thinking it'd be different this time

Let me be the canary in the coal mine
See how long I can keep singing
when my conscience
is a chorus

(Change)
part 1: I'll hold my head up high
I'll keep an open mind.
I won't dwell on the past
I'm gonna find love that will last
part 2: What is it that you are looking for this time?
What is it that you are searching for this time? (x2)
part 3: You're scared to be alone
