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?


from The Sensation of Flying, track released September 23, 2009
