All For A Woman lyrics – All At Once

All of these grateful looks
All these grateful eyes
All these furious stares, these fretful sighs

Promising everything
To everyone
“We’ll be back soon,
You’re my favorite one”

“I’ll keep it quiet”
“I’ll hold you dear”
The whispering fills the ear

“Tell me you’ll stay,
We would have such fun”
And the lie you don’t need anyone

And the screams, the wails, and the calls
The headiness of the fall
Ten thousand miles from where we began
I fell asleep with a picture in hand

It was all for a woman

You say that you’re grateful for the time alone
Two years away, “No, I don’t miss home”
And someone asks you if you ever think of her
And you smile politely and you demure

But then all at once your head starts to swim
And you can feel her breath on your skin
You find that you stare at the same spot for days
She’s above you, below you in ways

And you’re shivering cold
Like you’re just ten years old
And she’s lying asleep in your bed
And you’re standing beside her
The light from inside her
Filling up the darkness in your head

It was all for a woman

And you’ve drowned in the teasing
You’ve forgotten the reason
The muse inspires the art
You’d give anything for her to say them once more
The words you believed at the start

Ten thousand miles from where it began
Falling asleep with her picture in hand
It was all… it was all
For the look in her eyes
For the promise and the lie of a woman
