Troy lyrics

by Sinead O'Connor

I'll remember it
And Dublin in a rainstorm
And sitting in the long grass in summer
Keeping warm

I'll remember it
Every restless night
We were so young then
We thought that everything
We could possibly do was right

Then we moved
Stolen from our very eyes
And I wondered where you went to
And tell me when did the light die

You will rise
You'll return
The phoenix from the flame
You will learn

You will rise
You'll return
Being what you are
There is no other Troy
For you to burn

And I never meant to hurt you
I swear I didn't mean those things I said
I never meant to do that to you
Next time I'll keep my hands to myself instead

Oh, does she love you
What do you want to do?
Does she need you like I do?

Do you love her?
Is she good for you?
Does she hold you like I do? Oh...

Do you want me?
Should I leave?
I know you're always telling me
That you love me
Just sometimes I wonder
If I should believe

Oh, I love you
God, I love you
I'd kill a dragon for you
I'll die

But I will rise
And I will return
The Phoenix from the flame
I have learned

I will rise
And you'll see me return
Being what I am...
There is no other Troy
For me to burn

Well you should've left the light on
You should've left the light on
Then I wouldn't have tried
You'd never have known

Well I wouldn't have pulled you tighter
No I wouldn't have pulled you close
I wouldn't have screamed
No I can't let you go
And the door wasn't closed

No I wouldn't have pulled you to me
No I wouldn't have kissed your face
You wouldn't have begged me to hold you
If we hadn't been there in the first place

Oh but I know you wanted me to be there oh-oh
Every look that you threw told me so

But you should've left the light on
You should've left the light on
Light on oh... light onoh

And the flames burned away
But you're still spitting fire
Make no difference what you say
You're still a liar
You're still a liar
You're still a liar
