Lyrics

V1

I had to make you up for everyone.

They never knew. How would you?

Foolish toys on avenues making noise.

The picture in the kitchen is not enough.

We couldn’t touch. With you undone.

How is one so obvious not the same?

Not a fraction of it.

 

Ch

And out of sullen mouths they scream, “See me!

And how alone I belong.

I belong in halls that echo my name.”

I’m running out into where the world is waiting for you.

 

V2

You bothered with disguise and I obliged.

And I have tried all my life to recognize,

And clearly hear what truth might fall

upon an eager dreamer’s yearning ears.

Waiting for something sweeter; something more than just someone.

But you were gone. Were you ever really here?

 

Ch

And out of sullen mouths they scream, “See me!

And how alone I belong.

I belong in halls that echo my name.”

I’m running out into where the world is waiting for you

 

Br

To come to life,

And drown your lies,

And rest your eyes,

But you’re too stuck inside.

 

Ch

And out of sullen mouths they scream, “See me!

And how alone I belong.

I belong in halls that echo my name.”

I’m running out into where the world is waiting for you.
