I’m humming things you seem to never hear
You turn your head and smile
Hey, don’t you see you’re running through my veins?
Tell me why, you’re ripping apart my ribcage
With a simple stare
I’m sure you like the sound it makes
I had almost convinced myself
To never lower my guard and lose my senses
But here you are, evil creature, were you born to drag me down?
were you born to drag me down?
I wish I knew what you are searching for
I would change who I am
Swallow my pride, deny my own name
And stop those cogwheels in my head
They keep on turning and turning and never end
But please… don’t ever make me feel that way again.
Don’t ever make me feel that way again.
This is a song that I sing with no happy ending
My tired eyes are watching you behind
Those dirty subway windows
As you’re going away into another’s arms
I’m left here with these stupid chords of mine
Listen to my thin boy voice
An echo a far away noise
This is the song that I sing
It’s all been lived before
