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
