LYRICS

 
HOUSE OF THORNS
(Crickmore/Nelson/Wright)

 
This is not my kind of fight
You cut me up
And left me standing with the knife
You stole my soul while I tried to save
My pride

I'm not blinded by a thing about you
What the hell does your world amount to?
I'm living on a strangers staircase
While you've been dancing
With the strangers from below

Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon
I've ever known
I've ever known

I looked you in the eye this morning
But you would tape the warning
Something in your perfume scars me
I'm going to leave you
As the roses turn to clay

Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon
Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon
Of my days
Of all my days
This is not my kind of fight
You cut me up
And left me standing with the knife
You stole my soul while I tried to save
My pride

Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon
Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon
I've ever known

Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon
Of my life
Of all my life

Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon
Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon (I've ever, ever known)
Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon (Of all my days)
Through the house of thorns
Shone the brightest moon (Of all my days)
