Ballad Of Nobodies

Appearing On:

From The Vanishing Point

Lyrics:

Real love. Real love
I don’t know what I did, but I think I fucked up
Real love and heaven above
You’ve got to see ‘em to believe ‘em, which I’m not that fond of

CHORUS
I am the king of the gypsies
You are the queen of the fairies
In a story that can’t seem to make up its mind
And they’ll damn us both to hell, but we’ve got plenty of time

Trouble again. I don’t know where to begin
I’ve got an underdog’s life ‘cause I’m too scared to win
Your words are weapons of war
They’d bring a pirate to shore
The way you wield ‘em, woman, has got me
Sinking to the ocean floor, but…

CHORUS
And they’ll damn us both to hell if we don’t give ‘em a sign

Right and wrong.
A ring for a song
They say that life’s too short to have a chapter this long
Now I can’t sleep. Anxiety’s baiting me
Into a stare down with the ceiling, but tonight I’ve got him beat
While you were dreaming…

CHORUS
And they’ll damn us both to hell, and now we’re running out of time

Real love. Real love
I don’t know how we got it, but I don’t want to fuck it up
Real love. The push and the shove
You’re the only one I want, but I’m scared to death of losing ‘cause…

CHORUS
I am the king of the gypsies. You are the queen of the fairies
And the world may someday favor our side
Maybe we’re bound to be just a couple of nobodies
‘til then we’ll damn ‘em all to hell and make up our own storyline
And I don’t give a damn if we ever make up our minds
We can damn ‘em all to hell and make up our own storyline
