Traitor Signals

Lyrics (unofficial)

When the rain commandeers
What's left of your heart
Some traitor signals in your head
That's when you know the music won't stop
And the ocean has left you for dead

That tiny white star that shone from afar
The dancer you knew in Algiers
The woman with the spell
She knew you so well
Still her magic couldn't turn back the years

Slow down my friend
Oh I fear the end
With a feeling I cannot reveal
And the booze and the stuff
Cannot fill me enough
So just leave me with my half of the deal

That brilliant year
Man it got you so lit
That a candle could never compete
Snow falling down
On sanctified ground
Life on forever repeat
