Beyond You (Demo)

Beyond You (Demo)

Marillion

If you were a baby I would take you and run
I could hide you in the folds of my heart
There's a truth in the madness that I can't get beyond
And a fever that won't leave me alone

I don't want my heart
Don't want my head
Don't want my friends
Don't want my bed
I can't live with myself
I can't live with myself
Can't take no help
I try to want to
But I can't get beyond you

I will stare from the window
At the shapes in the rain
As the space between us drives me insane

I can't live with myself
I can't live with myself
Can't take no help
Don't want no one else

If I was a child
I would refuse to leave
I would sit down on the street
Kick my legs and scream

I'm not much of a man
But I know how I am
I know this won't fade away
I will pretend and be strong
But I wonder where I belong

And the feeling comes in waves
A hole in my body, aching
Like a heart dying
A soul crying
Exhausted and insecure
Took all you have and I still want more
So I reach out to hold you
But all I do is hurt you
Hurt you

I can't live with myself
I can't live with myself
Can't take no help
I try to want to
But I can't get beyond you

If I was a child I would take you and run
And I say I don't know... But I know
And I say I'll go

You just spent the whole day
Driving away
