Criss, Darren - The Muse Lyrics




You're a diamond that I'm afraid to touch
You're damn near flawless and I'm sure you'd cut
Off my eyes, my hands, my head, my heart
You'd tear this canvas skin apart
Oh, what a waste of human art that be

You're a dungeon, but you're made of glass
Your prisoners have no idea they're trapped
'Cause you look so beautiful inside
It makes us feel like we're alive
But lord knows we'll never survive your walls

Didn't you know that all along
You didn't need to hear your song
And if you don't know that
Then you might as well be dead...

Medusa's child preserved her former looks
She kept her out of all the storybooks
Just to get back at all of the men
Who have tried time and time again
To claim the right of her demise and end

A million years go by and you're still around
You're knocking us off of our feet you're knocking us down
But we still can't leave you alone
The way you move one would be prone
To want to be turned into stone by you

Didn't you know that all along
You didn't need to hear your song
And if you don't know that
Then you might as well be dead...

You make me feel so alive
But it's consequence I want to be dead
Was it how you arrived?
I can't tell or was it in
The way you left us here?

Didn't you know that all along
You didn't need to hear your song
And if you don't know that
Then you might as well
Might as well, oh...

You didn't need to hear your song
'Cause you just knew it all along
You didn't know that
So you might as well
Might as well be dead...

  9. marti-grecia Odalyz

    please, do not think that the Muse would be so heart-less to all---more so, she will attend and with ALL HER FURY-to those who have begged-FOOLISHLY for her PUNITIVE Attention.
    EVERYONE ELSE OF DESERVING GOOD HEART-THE MUSE SHALL OFFER ETERNAL REFUGE!

    Muses are NO fools--if one messes with them-oh oh! Muses are "Karma!"

  15. Erma Swords

    There's an easy way for everyone to get their own Darren Criss.
    We give him to Oprah, and then we all become her live studio audience.

  16. iheworld134

    DARREN JUST SO BEAUTIFUL.......

  17. Teddy Tabor

    His father WILL hear about that...

  18. so fia

    Have you ever cried because of his perfection?*^

    *-* he's just >>>>>>

  19. Sally Smith

    @cassiedove best comment ever

  20. Abigail Evans

    Why is he not more famous? His songs are (totally) awesome, and this is something I would love to hear on the radio everyday. Much better than most of the "oh-so-popular" songs they actually put on the radio.

  21. Paige M

    Like if you knew about everything - Starkid, LWL, the musicals, his EPs - before he became ridiculously famous :,)

  22. Holly Lacelle

    2 dislikes! Thanks Herman!

  23. Rachel Rojas

    Like if you knew this song before he was on Glee <3

  24. Mackenzie Greasley

    This is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard <3 In love with it

  25. jordiethejigglypuff

    ......nope, pretty sure he'd be creeped out.

  26. xsilverxraindropsx

    His voice is so...comforting. I can come home from a horrible day at school and listen to him sing and everything feels better. :) It's like he doesn't try to perfect his voice and that makes it all the more perfect. The passion makes up for any imperfections. And I could listen to him for hours.

  27. nomeutente61

    so... what i got is, he fell in love with a witch?
    kidding, great song

  28. TheKeineHobbies

    i think he reads some of the comments on his facebook pages and they´re the same there ^^

  38. dancer4life077

    MARRY HIM!

  39. dancer4life077

    I think Darren would be pretty scared, but then want one for himself...

  40. Kevy

    I know this sounds a little dorky, but I honestly get chills when I hear his voice.

  41. miwaywah

    Darren Criss you are the perfect male. Oh wait, you're the perfect human.


    I know that 99% of the people on here will overlook this post, but it's that 1% that I care

    about. If just one person reads it, it will be worth it. I am an aspiring singer-songwriter. I write

    my own original pieces, But I also do covers like The Muse & Stutter by the fabulous Darren!

    So if you love music or Darren as much as I do, please check my channel out!

  90. CamisadoCabaret369

    Love it love love love!
    Oh by the way it's "Medusas child" just so you know :D

  91. Anna

    Darren plz marry me? No u say? OK then at least take a break from Glee (even though it is good) and make AVPT!?!? Pretty, pretty pleeeeeeease?!?!?

  92. Stina Van Der Straeten

    He and the rest of the starkid cast should go on tour all over the world and preform AVPM or AVPS, but after he is done with Glee offcourse! love him.

  93. yeah okay

    @starkidwannabe11 XD my friend spoke to him on twitter, she said she was going to come find him and post him and all of the starkid cast to england aaaaand HE said: 'Go for it!' oh god i love him <3 <3
