Hurts Like Heaven lyrics

Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park
'Do you ever get the feeling that you're missing the mark?'
It's so cold, so cold, it's so cold, so cold

Written up in marker on a factory sign
'I struggle with the feeling that my life isn't mine'
It's so cold, so cold, it's so cold, so cold

See the arrow that they shot, trying to tear us apart
Fire from my belly and the beat from my heart
Still I won't let go, still I won't let go

You, ooh
[Unverified]
Oh you, use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

Streets and bars and a pavement of saints
And at the streets are rising and you'd rather sing
'Don't let them take control
No, we won't let them take control'

Yes, I feel a little bit nervous
Yes, I feel nervous and I cannot relax
I'm coming 'round to get us
I'm coming 'round when they don't know the facts

So on concrete canvas and a glow in the dark
Concrete canvas, I will make you a mark
Armed with the spray-can soul
I am down with the spray-can soul

You, ooh, oh, you, ooh
Yes, you, you use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven
Woo, ooh, woo, ooh

It's true
When you use your heart as a weapon
It hurts like heaven
