In spite of al I was going to say, I decided to smile In times like these, when I'm fading away, I feel something inside All by myself, here I sit, alone, but someday Someday I'll find a place I call mine I've been waiting for someone Waiting for All by myself, here I sit, alone, but someday Someday I'll find a place I call mine

Painting lines under my eyes I take a dance under these skies Lies Putting stocking on my thighs Pushing squares back down to size Lies Do what you wanna do I Realize Do what you wanna do I Idealize this different life Cold and pale narcotic eyes Come to stay just for a while Reddish hair and brownish eyes Russian skin, no compromise Do what you wanna do I Realize Do what you wanna do I Idealize this different life

Never liked to give my life away Never liked the way you asked to stay Never thought we were so far apart Never thought I'd say this but I'll smile if you want me to But I could never like anyone like you Nothing old and nothing new Just things you want me to want as much as you I prefer to wait another day I prefer to try another way You're so good to me, you make me pay You're so cruel to me but it's OK I'll smile if you want me to But I could never like anyone like you Nothing old and nothing new Just things you want me to want as much as you

I don't envy the sun, I've got black plastic glasses just like yours Do you know that I've always been, I've always been yours Do you lie when you say that you love me the same as before Where have you gone And what have I done wrong Has it been so long, lover I try to talk like before but I seem to get a hold on you Do you know that I've always been, I've always been thinking about you And as I get older, I'll get sober from you Where have you gone And what have I done wrong Has it been so long, lover

I came to see you in the house I came to see you but you were gone I'd like to se you all alone You'd like to see me when I'm gone I'd like to sing your melody I'd like to see you hum with me I'd like to sing your melody I came to see you in the park the people came to see you buried in the ground I'll never see you all alone You'll only see me when I'm gone I'd like to sing your melody I'd like to see you hum with me I'd like to sing your melody

Take off your clothes and stand in the pose I'll come back in style And if nobody knows you are what you chose I'll come back in style Cos I know you like to say that you're like me But the truth is that I'm closer to dirt And I know I should be taking it easy But a freak is so much harder to hurt Take off your clothes and stand in the pose Just hold me inside And if nobody knows you are what you chose Your hands on my side Cos I know you like to say that you love me But the truth is that you're making me hate And I know I should be taking it easy But a freak is so much harder to hurt If we're so young and we're so wild And you're so mine Baby, where's my crown If it's not real, don't make me believe I ask again Baby, where's my crown

I would have written a song for you if you wanted me If you wanted me to I would have tried to be a little like you if you wanted me If you wanted me too I know you Want a place to shine I see you with my velvet eyes I would have tried to be a little more cruel if you wanted me If you wanted me to be the star destined to shine in your sky And sound just like lullaby I know you Want a place to hide I see you want my velvet eyes And if we're on a road to nowhere And don't care if we'll really get there Forget about the way we really were Try to hide all the void away But you can never drown it always I know you Want a place to shine I see you with my velvet eyes

I'm not you son I'm not your friend I'm not lover who has gone away to find new ways To keep inside the peep hole of your lust Disgust In god I trust I must confess Life's turned to dust I'll melt this copper down to steel Addicted to this pain I feel And now, now you're here Just like me Hate your touch, hate your TV I'm shouting out to you I don't like you like you do Like chocolate cigarettes Your cancer knows regrets Like chocolate cigarettes Your life and soul, that big black hole That stings my heart and chokes my soul Of you, enough of you This life was never quite for you So treat me like you always did But I'm not listening to your feed I'll melt this copper down to steel Enchanted by this gift of melody Now you're here Just like me Hate your touch, hate your TV I'm shouting out to you I don't like you like you do Like chocolate cigarettes Your cancer knows regrets Like chocolate cigarettes

Late on time Let it all Let it shine Late on time Let it all Late and I I don't want to live my life around Jesus I've got what I need behind this glass wall Late on time Let it all When it comes Late on time Let it all Late and I I don't want to live my life around Jesus I've got what I need behind this glass wall

Sometimes when you dig, all you find blood and dirt It's the same Sometimes when I call you for help and you don't answer It's the same Maybe I will one day know The person that you were before And I'll understand the things you did And I'll know the person that you were But until that day in afterlife, I'll stay inside my own cocoon And I'll be inside my own cocoon And I'll stay inside expecting from you For nothing All I have to say is Why'd you tell me that you loved me And you left All I have to ask is Why'd you tell me that you loved me And you left Maybe you will one day see the life that you've taken from me And you'll understand the things you did And you'll know the person that you were But until that day in afterlife, I'll stay inside my own cocoon And I'll be inside my own cocoon And I'll stay inside expecting from you For nothing

If you want to be nice If you want to be shy Be like me But something in my mind is wrong And I can't find a way Something in my life is gone And I can't find a way If it's not enough to stay inside If it's not enough to be alone outside Be like me But something in my mind is wrong And I can't find a way Something in my life is gone And I can't find a way There's always someone

I've been running insane between the walls inside your house today I've been guessing your feelings for me, my dear, and it's OK No I've been eating the sand beneath your feet and inside your hands I've been dreaming about the way it feels to hold your hand again No
