Headline: Ladybird
------------------------------

Tell me a story of mind over matter
The hope and glory of life ever after
The sound and the fury the cloak and the dagger
Days when we sink like a stone

Porcelain portraits and silver medallions
Plasticine soldiers that march in battalions
Angels of mercy and lifelong companions
Days when we sink like a stone

There's a room somewhere with a different look
Where your secret life is an open book
Where the love we made was a chance we took
Days when we sink like a stone

Ladybird fly away our friends are gone
Ladybird fly away our house is on fire

Let us be lovers we'll melt after midnight
Hoist up the main sail we'll coast through to daylight
Twisted like candles that fade in the half-light
Days when we sink like a stone

Well we die sometimes to begin again
When the same old dreams have the same old end
When we lose our mind or we lose our friends
Days when we sink like a stone

Ladybird fly away our friends are gone
Ladybird fly away our house is on fire

-Roland Orzabal / Curt Smith
