COPS ON HORSES

from the album Music From The Motion Picture Harvest by Duncan Sheik & David Poe

CUP A HAND AND A MATCH IS SPARKED
SUN IS SHINING AND THE TREES ARE RED
SHE'S GOT A PRETTY SONG BUT SHE SINGS IT DARK
AND IT STAYS INSIDE MY HEAD

YOU AND I ARE FROM ANOTHER TIME
SO MANY LIVES WE COULD HAVE LED
LIKE COPS ON HORSES, THERE'S NO REASON FOR US ANYMORE
OUR TIME IS COMPLETED

OUT IN THE DISTANCE
COPS ON HORSES
NO REASON FOR IT
COPS ON HORSES
OUT IN THE DISTANCE

HOW MANY FIRES WILL YOU START
HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU GET ME TO BELIEVE
HOW MANY NIGHTS HAVE YOU WATCHED ME FALL APART
AND BURN LIKE FALLEN LEAVES

HOW MANY HARD WORDS HAVE YOU SAID
HOW MANY HEARTS HAVE YOU BROKEN AND BLED
HOW MANY HORSES DID YOU RIDE INTO OUR BED
IT STAYS INSIDE MY HEAD

OUT IN THE DISTANCE
COPS ON HORSES
NO REASON FOR IT
COPS ON HORSES

COPS ON HORSES
NO REASON FOR IT ANYMORE
WHEN ALL THE STREETS ARE DEAD
