Losing My Mind

Artist: The Cranberries
Released on: Roses (Track #5)
Duration: 3:39


Come into bed, switch off the light
Close your eyes, sleep tonight
Think of all the things we did today
You touch me then, I fall apart
I lose control, the hardest part
I wish that it could be another way

Losing, I’m losing, I’m losing my mi-ind
Ruining, you’re ruining, you’re ruining my mi-ind

You cut me deep like broken glass
I wonder when this time will pass
Or will I fall asunder everyday
Sitting here beside the fire
The flames they grow just like desire
Will I hold asunder everyday

Losing, I’m losing, I’m losing my mi-ind
Ruining, I’m ruining, you’re ruining my mi-ind

ha-a, la-a
la-a, ha-a
la-a-a-a-a, la-a, la-a
la-a-a-a-a, la-a, la-a
