The Only Way I Want It

Lyrics > What Remains - The Only Way I Want It

THE ONLY WAY I WANT IT

A WHITE SILENCE CAME DOWN TO EMBRACE THE GROUND
WINDOWS SHUTTERED TO KEEP OUT THE COLD
I AM SITTING HERE WONDERIN’
WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE OLD
REALLY OLD WHEN TIME HAS PASSED
IN DARKNESS AND ALL ALONE
BOTH WAYS IS THE ONLY WAY I WANT IT
AND I WANT IT FOR MY OWN

I SIT DOWN NEXT TO THE BLONDE, VERONICA
SHE’S WATERING A PAIN I KNOW NOTHING OF
SHE LOOKS AT ME THROUGH A SMOKER’S CLOUD
AND SHE TRIES TO GUESS WHERE I’M FROM
I CLOSE MY EYES AND WONDER
WHAT I AM DOING HERE
BOTH WAYS IS THE ONLY WAY I WANT IT
AND I WANT IT BEFORE THE TEARS

Chorus
EVERYTHING IS BURIED,
AWKWARDS FACTS THEY ARE CONCEALED
THE TRUTH HAS FALLEN VICTIM
TO NIGHTIME’S SACRED SEAL
I’M LOST WITHIN THE ICY HAZE
THE DARKEST CORNERS ARE OUT OF REACH
IF I TOOK THE BRIGHTEST LIGHT WITH ME
I’M NOT SURE WHAT I WOULD SEE

HOW DO I SEEK THE ELUSIVE PRIZE
WHEN I KNOW NOT FOR WHAT I SEARCH?
WILL I FIND IT IN BARCELONA
OR AT THE EDGES OF THE EARTH?
I DRINK ANOTHER GLASS OF WINE
AND ASK LOUISE TO SET ME STRAIGHT
BOTH WAYS IS THE ONLY WAY I WANT IT
AND I WANT IT BEFORE IT’STOO LATE

WHY THE SMOKESCREENS AND INNUENDO?
THE CLOAK-AND-DAGGER, FURTIVE MOVES?
WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE SECRETS
ARE BETTER OFF WHEN WHISPERED BEHIND THE MOON
I THINK I’LL ASK HENRIETTA
TO TEST THE WATERS SOON
BOTH WAYS IS THE ONLY WAY I WANT IT
AND I WANT I BEFORE I’M IN RUINED

Hamden, February 2009
