Ache
24 Hour Revenge Therapy LP/CD

I believe in desperate acts.
The kind that make me look stupid. (Look like a fool.)
Just keep reinventing myself.
It's move or die. (I change my form.)
These days the people I love
are spread so far apart. (All out of reach.)
It's a thin sheet
across the face. (Cover me now.)

That's pretty old.
I never felt like this before.
I say that every hour.

It's never going to be like it could have been.
Now it's just this room. (Window looks back.)
You're a big part of it.
But I don't care. (You take the lead.)
And can you really see me now
like I made me? (Made me anew.)
Just like
anyone else. (Safer alone.)

That's pretty old.
I never felt like this before.
I say that every hour.

So right, so wrong.
Another winter's coming on.
You win, you lose.
It's the same old news.
These things go wrong so often.
Pick up the phone
and punch your home code.
Somewhere, sometime
let me make you mine.

Lean your head on mine
like you used to. (Used to your lean.)
I don't mind
if you're faking it. (Make it seem real.)
I'm not asking the questions.
I'm not demanding the answers now. (Take what you give.)
Right or wrong, just take me, lead me on.
I'm going.

So right, so wrong.
Another winter's coming on.
You win, you lose.
It's the same old news.
These things go wrong so often.
Pick up the phone
and punch your home code.
Somewhere, sometime
let me make you mine.



Notes:
Parenthical words appear in the studio version as back-up vocals, and are absent from live performances.
An early live version from late 1991 contains the following lyrics:
  "It's a thin sheet with a lot of horror" instead of "It's a thin sheet across the face."
  "That's pretty old. Ever feel your skin go cold? That's pretty old." instead of "That's pretty old" repeated twice.
  "Not like [you promised me?]" instead of "Now it's just this room."
  "Can I live without it?" repeated twice instead of "But I don't care."
  "Just like anyone else that you don't know" instead of "Just like anyone else."
  "All excuses add to nothing ___ ___ ___ ___" instead of "I'm not asking the questions. I'm not demanding the answers now."
  "Please, please, please" inserted before the last line "Somewhere, sometime let me make you mine."
