LyricsEdit

Just like Solomon I’ll cut my heart in half
If you wont say who stole it
I know the one that truly loves me
Will step up and let go of it
I don’t know what else to do
No, I don’t know what else to do

Just like pharaoh king I wish for peace
But I refuse to see what's happening
And then I don’t believe I will release
Anything except a laugh [ha ha ha]
And the locusts filled the air
And all my rivers turned to red

I was already ugly and old
Like you said I would become
When being who I really was
Got in the way of your childish fun
And the hour glass goes clear
One less day of being here

Yes I put a ring around your finger
And I know that you will wear it
Though certainly you’ll come to see
To live with me is not an easy path

I don’t know what else to do.
No, I don’t know what else to do.
I don’t know what else to do.
No, I don’t know what else to do.

And though we’ve never met
And though we've never kissed
I've never held your hand
But I'm good just dreaming that one day I can
