 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

She said "You're terrible at stayin',
Probably better that you're goin',
All the love that you have stolen is a crime"
But I don't wanna lean on your piece of glass, just to fly

She said "You're always looking inside, why not reaching outside
Put some focus on a picture perfect wife"
I said "The earth is turning 'round, you know,
The wind is changing also,
Don't you think the same laws might apply to life?"

But I don't want to lean on your wedding bell
Fare thee well
I'll remain your friend 'til we meet again
In the twilight

I said everything is blurry,
I almost can't tell you apart from all the other girls
Except you don't complain
She said "Better fix your vision but I prefer the precision
Of everybody looking much the same"

But I don't wanna lean on your paper back, let's turn the page
I will cheer you on 'til your game dissolves
In the twilight

Oh Magdalene (oh my my)
I love you
You think I'm insane,
Well I'm leaving on evening's train
Ah, hey Madonna, do the honors and pray for the day

Is the sun so selfish, because it will set now?
Is the wind a jerk because it change?
And would you call the earth an asshole
For turning 'round 'n round, you know
It never ever stays in just one place
Now if I'm not mistaken, the natural equation would be
You and I as best of friends for life
Cross all your lines and numbers,
And wake up from the slumber
Into a dream of neither day or night

But I don't want to lean on your wedding bell,
Fare thee well
I'll remain your friend 'til we meet again,
In the twilight
In the twilight
