If he could breathe then he would feel so well
And not locked up inside this prison cell
Another accident complacency
And now he’s questioning a truth believed
A precious memory from so long ago
Push come to shove and now he won’t let go

And he sees this world through cellophane eyes
It’s almost like he can feel my lies

So please you’re not alone
I caught him out in the freezing snow
I’ve been his friend
It’s hard to tell
You’re hardly old enough, so teach him well

In agony a mother seeking help
A son astray as far as I can tell
A month is gone without a word to speak
Afraid and lonely on this windy street
Saving face and shame from strangers by
The choice is made and only God know why

And he sees this world through cellophane eyes
It’s almost like he can feel my lies

So please you’re not alone
I caught him out in the freezing snow
I’ve been his friend
It’s hard to tell
You’re hardly old enough, so teach him well

So please don’t leave it’s your eyes, they’re deceiving you
For all eternity, the truth revealed in you
For all eternity, the truth revealed in you (repeat)

So please you’re not alone
I caught him out in the freezing snow
I’ve been his friend
It’s hard to tell
You’re hardly old enough, so teach him well
Teach him well.
