The Killers Carry Me Home Lyrics

Last updated: 09/16/2012 07:31:44 AM

Let me out
Don't tell me everything
Start it out
Like any other day
Must have gave the wrong impression
Don't you understand where I belong?
I'm not the one

Stand again
They say nothing comes for free
And that's the truth
I've been living in a fantasy
Slip and slide ahead trip heaven
Self-denial is such a wonderful and powerful thing
But I'm not the one

The morning dove sings with two broken wings
Carry me home, I'm not afraid
The stars in my eyes with shimmering lights
Carry me home, don't let me fade away

Stop the press the kids light is growing dim
It took a month long slide, then the world came caving in
When you self-destruct you wind up looking for a glimmer of hope
But the writing's on the wall
I'm not the one

The morning dove sings with two broken wings
Carry me home, I'm not afraid
The stars in my eyes with shimmering lights
Carry me home, don't let me fade (away)

Just how thick is your skin?
Just how sharp are your teeth?
Oh, you've got a lot to learn
Is there somewhere else that I can win
Is there something else to start over again
From the summit's edge to the cutting room floor
I will be afraid no more

The morning dove sings with two broken wings
Carry me home, I'm not afraid
The stars in my eyes with shimmering lights
Carry me home, don't let me fade
Carry me home, carry me
