GLITTER & BLISS

[verse 1]  I was young and you knew that full well
So you sang my song
Then you gave a tour of heaven and hell
And I came along

[pre 1] I see why, why, why
You and I, I, I
could feed each other’s needs
But ‘til I wake, wake, wake
You will take, take, take
this place inside of me

[chorus 1] So I’m trying to remember
all the reasons that I loved you,
and it’s tragic how I fell
I was naive and got tempted,
but your love was only rented
first you give, and then you sell

[ hook] You’re pushing glitter and bliss
Glitter and bliss
Keep pushing Glitter and bliss
Glitter and bliss

[verse 2] You let me drive, you’d be content to ride
but you defined the road
You hid it well, behind the promise of wealth
I’d be rich alone

[pre 2] So I gave, gave, gave
And you made, made, made
Me promise even more
And I tied, tied, tied
Up my life, life, life
in what I’m not made for

[chorus 1] So I’m trying to remember
all the reasons that I loved you,
and it’s tragic how I fell
I was naive and got tempted,
but your love was only rented
first you give, and then you sell

[ hook] You’re pushing glitter and bliss
Glitter and bliss
Keep pushing Glitter and bliss
Glitter and bliss

[bridge] You are a counterfeit
You did not create bliss
You cannot promise
 such things, such things, such things as this

[chorus 2] You played it as a beacon,
so my resolution weakened
and I let you be my star.
I was shackled as your slave
in the moment that I prayed
to the cult of what you are

And your Glitter & Bliss

[hook with bridge phrases on outro]
