I cannot say you were not here for me In your day of darkness The same you say And I will not say that you are not here for me In your days of darkness I've got no-one here And no one around I don't have a meaning I came for the sound I just told you How I feel But why would you Listen to Listen to Listen to me I only wanna tell you the truth Goddamn these stupid thoughts They're cluttering up now Cluttering up my head Only wanna tell you the truth

Cautious as I am I stand alone Not by myself But singular among all the rest Weary of the smallest heartbeat But solo, nonetheless I won't exaggerate for you You see the mirror Not a metaphor for glass But ice instead Dead, from drear survival It's just one of those things that you do It's just one of those things that you do Warm pink has turned a secondary light Muddled purple for cold Dismayed, the blood pumps But it pumps half-emtpy Half-empty or low Like I am now Now

You and me We could be ordinary guys And sleep with a reason And not a false sense of shame You and me We could be ordinary men No one alone at home Another day for you and me We sing about catastrophe When all you wanted was me In your life To pay the price For all your misery You could not be Anyone or anything You and me We could be realistic With no one to shame us No one to care You and me We could be ordinary men No one alone at home Another day for you and me We sing about catastrophe When all you wanted was me In your life To pay the price For all your misery You could not be Anyone or anything Left alone you couldn't sing our song You maybe thought one day that you would be... Another day for you and me We sing about catastrophe When all you wanted was me In your life to pay the price For all your misery You could not be anyone or anything For all your misery You could not be Anyone or anything

I know this might Be too hard for you to hear But I have left Everything that I hold dear Behind a wall I've chosen as the place for me My memories Thrown as far as I can see It's awar They finally gave me air to breathe And water to drink And something to read It's awar I know this might Be too hard for you to hear But I have left Everything that I hold dear Behind a wall I've chosen as the place for me They finally gave me air to breathe And water to drink And something to read It's awar

As snowflakes cover the ground And the color white is all around You stare out the window Looking down Thinking that everyone must pay a price While wondering to yourself Whether you'll bounce once or you'll bounce twice The time that you spend Has only been leased Just as the clock on the wall is not really your own As you measure up importance from greatest to least You count up all the people And find out that you're alone Just when you needed some fresh air You found there was no breeze Well, you only look down as you cross the bridge And the light goes off when you open the fridge When Christmastime comes other people open your gifts And the iceberg you're chained to never seems to drift If you were at the beach then the sun would hide When the bus would come by it wouldn't give you a ride You can either think of your life and all the pain you've felt Or you can sit and watch the snowflakes until they all melt

I will not be here For why, I cannot say Hold me in your arms And I will feel alright But you know I feel You know I feel alone And you know I feel I wanna feel alone But when you came around me I will see When you came at me You will not be held again, sent to hell And you could not be hands that feel A minute away But you know I feel You know I feel alone And you know I feel I wanna feel alone But when you came I could not be held for long But when you came I could not be held in your arms

You say I never told you I was leavin' to be gone for good And though I admit there may be problems Take what I left you Do what you should Don't say that I was stupid For telling you goodbye For god knows I needed your love so many times Falling away It's all the same now This ain't a game now No one to blame Falling away It's all the same now to me Another day No more pain now and no more shame D'ya feel the same Falling away Another day we had made Another day we had made And you oughta know That I want I want I need you badly And you know I feel for you When what I feel just isn't true When what I feel just isn't true anymore Don't say that you were stupid Cause all you gave to me Was what I needed to be who I am today It's who I wanna be Falling away It's all the same now This ain't a game now No one to blame Falling away It's all the same now to me Another day No more pain now And no more shame D'ya feel the same Falling away Another day we had made Another day we had made Falling away It's all the same now This ain't a game now No one to blame Falling away It's all the same now to me Another day No more pain now And no more shame D'ya feel the same Falling away Another day we had made Another day we had made

I know the way that you know the way to my heart Can you tell me Is that a start for you? And maybe someday You'll only see me for myself And you'll know there's something new for you too But maybe not Maybe not You'll tell of times When I was never quite the guy that you could be Is that right for you? And you could not see That all you could be was left in shroud Was it written in the stars for you too? Maybe not Maybe not Maybe not
