why don't you come up here let your body rise through the air let all your burdens fall come watch the clouds disappear i'll make you right at home and play you a happy song turn on the tea in armchairs we'll read tagore into the night and talk to the wind after all, she bore our messages why don't you come up here let you body rise through the clean clear air let all your troubles fall come watch the clouds disappear

i came up to a fork in the road i had a listen but there wasn't a soul not a sight or a sound to behold and i wasn't sure which path did the future hold would the future hold? i headed out and so did my ghost barely a word from our heavenly host i don't trust gods like i trust signs and i got mine i took the road less traveled by ahh, but it's a steeper climb why do i even try? but when we're scared we take the high road yeah we walk we walk the tightrope our delusions are all we have and i deserve an honorary degree i put in and don't ask for much as long as i'm seen for what what i am is a wanderer watching the world turn before my eyes before my eyes close show me a sign show me i'm worth more

i cry myself to sleep at night i'm a ball of tears the moment i hit the lights o my what have i done? i've pushed all my friends away now my heart is beating me like my daddy did when i misbehaved and lonely is my friend she tucks me in out of concern she lights a candle so i'm not the only one who burns lonely, won't stay with me til the morning birds sing their clever words and the songs they call fill this lonely world i drag my feet across the ground i think they're the ones who are dragging me into the crowd o my my but why should i care if anyone thinks i'm cool is it so bad that i prefer the company of my solitude?

i don't wanna see you cry huddled up inside your apartment beside yourself cos you mean so much more to me than words on a computer screen o won't u please believe me i just wanna see you smile take a walk outside your apartment where you're still adored and laugh laugh while you cry at the absurdities of life no i won't stop throwing cliches at you writing songs and poems whenever you're blue until there is simply nothing left to do but love yourself again

i'm trying to get thru it's so hard to follow you w/ your twists and turns you're making me dizzy w/ toughlove when will enough be enough i'm trying to wake up to find something i can be proud of until i do it's toughluck imagine bags without eyes imagine a world w/o time push it away i had a vision a perfect caress my soul wasn't bound by an imminent death i had all the time in the world to rectify some peace of mind and hold some peace of heart in my soul til death do we part i'm tryin to stay awake i'm so tired of watching my heart break so long as i breathe it's not too late now what would the owl say? what would the child do? what would they all say, should i succumb to my blues?
