Sordid Affair

Röyksopp

There was a time
Dark and divine
Exciting and new
Shameful and true
Free to explore
We had it all
Towering trust
Insatiable lust
Clouding the truth

Both of us knew
This sordid affair
Is ending in tears
Yes, we would go on
Knowing the wrong
Until the day
It was taken away
Oh, all our love
Fell down
To earth
Here, broken and cold
With grave remorse

But for a while
It all made sense
It might have been just a dark pretense
But you had me
And I loved it
To be with you
To be the one
To live a lie
It really got me all excited
I felt wanted

Then in the night
The sorrow inside
Was taken away
Deliverance came
Fell from the sky
Heaven replied…
Salvation in streams
Silent and clean
All that we were
All that we knew
Faded away
With tears in the rain

Yes, all that we were
All that we knew
Is fading away
Like tears in the rain
All that we were
All that we knew
Fading away
All that we were
All that we knew
Fading away
