The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Heaven’s Gonna Happen Now

Justine, you’re dying just to hear the sound

And dreaming of another town

Cuz nothing here is going on

Write now, cuz all your real friends are words

You’ve never ever been so sure

That what you’ve got can’t be cured

And now, nothing’s gonna turn us down

You can’t sit there and look scared

When everything’s happening now

Come on, nothing’s gonna turn us down

So don’t stand there like you don’t care

Cuz heaven’s gonna happen now

Look down, don’t see yourself between the lines

Just tell them that you’re doing fine

Cuz I can tell you’re doing time

In a cell that looks just like a family home

Where solitaire is all you know

And there’s nowhere that you could go

Break down, or maybe just break the skin

You’re writing down everything

Cuz words are still a faithful friend

So now, tell me what you’re gonna do

Cuz I can see the fire in you,

And I can see it’s burning through

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart The Garret

The light of our lives burns down

Waiting for hours and hours

Our hunger is just a hum

Another distraction, another distraction

But in your arms

I feel lost and torn

Call to a silent room

The answer comes so crystal

It’s not like you need to learn

We’re tied to each other, tied to each other

In your arms

I feel lost and torn

In your arms

I feel a stranger faith

Forget the countless ways

I am so alien, a prisoner in skin

Our bodies break like glass

And shatter all our fears

I want to know you then

When heaven disappears

Heaven disappears

Tears in your heart remain, oh-oh, oh-oh

And nothing I do could ever undo

But I want to stay halfway the same

In your arms

I feel lost and torn

In your arms

I feel a stranger faith

Forget the countless ways

I am so alien, a prisoner in skin

Our bodies break like glass

And shatter all our fears

I want to know you then

When heaven disappears

Heaven disappears

Now I fear you’re drifting beyond me

The words I say don’t say

The touch is what I need

You take my youth away

And leave me with no need, and leave me with no need

When I leave you, I can’t leave you

Part of me remains

In the garret above, it was never enough, never enough

When I leave you, I can’t leave you

Part of me remains

In the garret above, it was never enough, never enough

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Life After Life

I still care about Christian

Does he care about me?

When I see him around he looks down,

afraid of what he’ll see

And I know there’s a heaven

that he’s trying to find

But it’s hell that he makes, callous and afraid

of the ones he’s left behind

And the touch of his body, so tender and cruel,

when he made me play girlfriend,

there wasn’t much I could do

He’d come to my garret,

and we’d make something like love

But the flowers he gave me have wilted,

but I keep them, like I keep him

He wants a life after life

But the world he didn’t love,

and the one he didn’t love

should have been

Night after night

But the world he didn’t love,

and the one he didn’t love

will never know

paradise

When he makes his confessions,

when he says his prayers

and kneels beside his bed in the moonlight,

is a part of me there?

He’s taken up with a new girl,

who keeps his conscience clean,

and tells him he’s a keeper,

though I don’t know if he knows what that means

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart The Cure For Death

Hold no hand, still she pulls you

Don’t look back, stills she follows you

As the North Sea screams

You’ll cross the boundary

And it feels like nothing feels like

And the cure for death is

Wild and breathless

When you lost more than you’ll ever know

Don’t die away, don’t die away, don’t die away

And you’ll walk all night

With a wounded hunter’s stride

But when she’s near you’re almost scared

Nothing could be so clear

And you want to stay like a runaway

And the cure for death is

Wild and breathless

When you need more than you’ll ever know

Don’t die away, don’t die away, don’t die away

And if she takes

My empty silhouette

We won’t let go of the echo for nothing, for no one

And the cure for death is

Wild and breathless

When you need more than you’ll ever know

Don’t die away, don’t die away, don’t die away

Don’t die away, don’t die away, don’t die away

Don’t die away, don’t die away, don’t die away

Don’t die away, don’t die away, don’t die away

Don’t die away, don’t die away, don’t die away

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Kelly

Hunt me with your blackened eyes,

would you run to the end of the world?

Tell me how you can’t be kind,

would you run to the end of the world?

‘Cuz I know you’re violent, and I know you’re true,

and there’s a thousand lives you’d like to try

but never do

But if you come with me, we could find just two

Kelly tell me all you like

If it’s filthy films and swill I think we just might

Kelly tell me all you’d live without

If it’s quotes as jokes and coke

we should hang around

Passed out on the train again,

woke up at the end of the world

So you’re a lush with a healthy mistrust

of any man who says you must

be someone’s baby, or nobody at all,

with a thousand lives so circumscribed

they’re not lives at all

but if you come with me, we could lose them all

Tell me everything

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Belong

What to do, nothing new

We tried each other, let’s try another

When you came through the door,

I felt everything and nothing that I had before

Tell yourself it’s not yourself

But no one else can make me know there’s no one else

When you came through the door,

I was sure you never even felt the floor

I know it is wrong, but we just don’t belong

In their eyes, in the sun

No we just don’t belong

Change your mind and stop the time

That comes between us, that bends beneath us

If you’re mine, I don’t mind

We tried another, let’s try each other

I know it is wrong, but we just don’t belong

In their eyes, in the sun

No we just don’t belong

In hospitals, in shopping malls

With heavy heads and locker walls

An empty street at 3 a.m.,

You told me you’re not one of them

We took a vow to never sleep

While there was still air left to breathe

And you’re the same, so slightly strange

Among the fakes you knew the pains.

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Young Adult Friction

Between the stacks in the library

Not like anyone stopped to see

We came, they went, our bodies spent

Among the dust and the microfiche

Dark winters wear you down

Up again to see the dawn

In your worn sweatshirt and your mother’s old skirt

It’s enough to turn my studies down

Now that you feel

You say it’s not real

Now that you feel

You say it’s not real

I never thought I would come of age

Let alone on a moldy page

You put your back to the spines and you said it was fine

If there’s nothing really left to say

You’re taking toffee with your Vicodin

Something sweet to forget about him

If you go your own way, I can go my own way

And we’ll never speak of it again

Now that you feel

You say it’s not real

Now that you feel

You say it’s not real

Don’t check me out, don’t check me out

Don’t check me out

Don’t check me out, don’t check me out

Don’t check me out

Don’t check me out, don’t check me out

Don’t check me out

Don’t check me out, don’t check me out

Don’t check me out

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Strange

When everyone was doing drugs,

we were just doing love

A stranger said you’re strange like me

Ana, our dreams are coming true

Don’t tell me that a day will come

when we dress like everyone

cuz I can tell you’re strange like me

Don’t say the hour’s growing late

Don’t say we should be going straight

cuz I can tell you’re strange like me

And dreams can still come true,

and it’s coming true for you

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart This Love Is Fucking Right

Sweet sister

Can’t you find the words to say?

Your mister

He don’t treat you the right way

In a dark room I can see you shining bright

You don’t have to tell me twice, it’s alright

In a dark room we can do just as we like

You’re my sister and this love is fucking right

Can you go home?

Look your best friend in the eye

No, you can’t go home

After where you slept last night

In a dark room I can see you shining bright

You don’t have to tell me twice, it’s alright

In a dark room we can do just as we like

You’re my sister and this love is fucking right

In a dark room I can see you shining bright

You don’t have to tell me twice, it’s alright

In a dark room we can do just as we like

You’re my sister and this love is fucking right

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart When I Dance With You

Though when I dance with you

I feel ok, I feel ok

Because I know just what to do

Oh when I dance with you

I feel ok, I feel ok

Because I know just what to do

You get so down

I try to comfort

Sometimes words, they don’t do anything much at all

You tell me how

It was so different

You got a vision

I can’t see beyond the afternoon

But when I dance with you

I feel ok, I feel ok

Because I know just what to do

And when I dance with you

I feel ok, I feel ok

Because I know just what to do

I don’t know how I’ll make money

Just want enough so you never have to worry

No you never have to worry

Who will it be

In 2030?

Oh I can’t say

But I light it from always with you out (with you out)

Cause when I dance with you

I feel ok, feel ok

Because I know just what to do

And when I dance with you

I feel ok, feel ok

Because I know just what to do

When I dance with you

Everyone else, anyone else

Just lies out of view

And when I dance with you

I feel just like, feel just like

There’s nothing I can do

But move the way you move

When I dance with you

When I dance with you

When I dance with you

When I dance with you

I feel ok, feel ok

I feel ok, feel ok

When I dance with you

Yeah I feel ok, feel ok

I feel ok, feel ok

When I dance with you

I feel ok, feel ok

Feel ok, feel ok

Feel ok, feel ok

Feel ok

I said I feel ok, feel ok

I feel ok, feel ok

Feel ok, feel ok

Feel ok

I wanna dance with you
