Sade
Like A Tattoo

He told me sweet lies of sweet love
Heavy with the burden of the truth

And he spoke of his dreams
Broken by the burden
Broken by the burden of his youth

Fourteen years he said
I couldn't look into the sun
She saw him laying
at the end of my gun

Hungrey for life
And thirsty for the distant river

I remember his hands
And the way the mountains looked
The light shot diamonds from his eyes

Hungry for life
And thirsty for the distant river

Like the scar of age
Written all over my face
The war is still raging inside of me
I still feel the chill
As i reveal my shame to you

I wear it like a tattoo
I wear it like a tattoo
I wear it like a tattoo
