Ready To Settle

Ready To Settle lyrics

Ready To Settle

Marie:

Grabbed the moon
Full of hope
Fell to earth
Without rope
Heart as heavy as a stone

Been betrayed
Been abused
Spirit flayed
And ego bruised
Ev'rybody dies alone.

I always knew before he flew
He was too good for me
Now I'm here with you
How more different could you be?

You're just like me
Alone and sad
And in this light
You don't look so bad.

I've had the best
Now I need a rest
Just someone who'll do
And I'm ready to settle for you.

This feel like a cancer grows
Feel the rot between my toes.

Marie & Backup Singer:
Why take another breath?

For now I see
That all life brings
Is a string of disappointing things.
And in the end--cold death.

We're both aware this love we share
Can't even fill a room
And so we talk too loud
To drown out the desperate gloom!

Marie:
My heart is dead

Backup Singer:
Heart is dead

Marie:
A hollow bone

Backup Singer:
Hollow bone

Marie:
I'm filled with dread

Both:
I'll end up alone!

Marie:
I'll move in my stuff
Act like it's enough

I'm past thirty-two

Backup Singer:
Past thirty-two

Marie:
And I'm ready

Both:
To settle for you.

Marie:
See the happy people laughing
They're all deaf and blind!

Backup Singer:
Blind and deaf.

Marie:
Why should we go on searching
For something we won't find?

Backup Singer:
There's no hope.

Marie:
Why should we pretend
We're happy too?

Backup Singer:
You know we're not.

Both:
I'd rather just stay home
And sulk with you!

You're just like me
Alone and sad
And in the dark
You don't look so bad

Marie:
It's nice to know
That you'll never go

Cause if not me, then who?

Backup Singer:
If not me then who?

Marie:
And I'm ready

Both:
To settle

Marie:
For you

Both:
Ready to settle....
Ready to settle....
Ready to settle....
For you.
