The bells are tolling for me and my love 
Discreet horizon's fading, but fading from my trust 
All the walls are falling 'round my ears 
I can see the writing's on the wall 

Can't you tell me what's the use? 
I always place my trust in you 
Reaching out for what is mine 
Pulling down the miserable blinds 

Empty beds for an empty mind 
Something difficult to describe 
Content but not quite safe 
I stood and watched you fade away 
Can't you tell me what's the use? 
I always placed my trust in you 
Reaching out for what is mine 
Pulling down the miserable blinds 

Can't you tell me what's the use? 
I always place my trust in you 
People flying into the blinds 
How can we be so kind? 
Help yourself to another bite 
Everything will be alright 
The table's turning 'round to you 
? it well before the silver cracks in two 
Can't you tell me what's the use? 
(The bells are tolling) for me and my life 
Can't you tell me what's the use? 
(Horizon's fading) for me and my life 
Can't you tell me what's the use? 
(The walls are falling) for me and my life 
Can't you tell me what's the use? 
(The tables turning) for me and my life
