lyrics

it's hard being you
'cause no-one else
sees things
the way that you do
stuck sitting there
alone with your brain
it's singing
the same old refrain

and when you're down
there's nowhere to go
except farther
when you're down
there's nowhere to go
except farther

you see everything
(close the eyes and they no longer see)
everything everything
(break the heart and it no longer feels)
and then none

you feel everything
(close the eyes and they no longer see)
everything everything
(break the heart and it no longer feels)
all at once

one slip will set you back
a hundred miles
back where you said
you'd never go

turn that frown upside-down
you could move off
and start your own little town
bring the tv
but forget the phone
some folks
is best off alone

close the eyes and they no longer see
break the heart and it no longer feels
close the eyes and they no longer see
break the heart and it no longer feels
