When the darkness takes me over
Face down, emptier than zero
Invisible you come to me
..quietly

Stay beside me
Whisper to me "Here I am"
And the loneliness fades


Some people think I'm somethin'
Well you gave me that, I know
But I always feel like nothing
When I'm in the dark alone


You provide the soul, the spark that drives me on
Makes me something more than flesh and bone


At times like these
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love inside me


All these years
Truth In front of my eyes
While I denied
What my heart knows was right


At times like these
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love inside me


I want to be someone
I want to be someone
I want to be someone
Who someone would want to be
Someone would want to be


Wendy
Darling
In the kitchen
With your dreams

Will you fly
again
Take to the sky
again


Undo the hooks
Once and for all
Banish the tic tic tic tok tok tok
Again


Will you be
Yourself for me
Cause I can take it
I can stand
Anything


When you're with me
I can stand it
I can stand


But when you're gone
I never land
In Neverland



Want to be someone someone would want to be
someone someone would want to be
someone someone would want to be
someone someone someone someone


Any fool
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love
Inside me

    General Commentthis song is amazing. I love the piano in the beginning, and yes, "I want to be someone who someone wants to be" is an AMAZING lyric.
    I got into Marillion because of my dad. Not many people here in the U.S. know who they are, which is quite a shame to me, but I guess I'm one lucky American to have a dad with good taste in music.

    My InterpretationYou know? Strikes me that this song was written and recorded as a love song, and a devotional song, shortly before Hogarth's wife of 20 or so years decided she wanted out. Saw him singing this in concert shortly after, and crying his way through it. Broke my heart...

    General CommentTruly an amazing piece... possibly the best song on "Marbles" next to Ocean Cloud. Steve Rothery gives one hell of a solo in the middle. Brilliant!!!!!

    General Commentthis is one of my favourite songs ever, shame that i'm the first to write about it. at heart i think its a love song, told by someone in their mid or late stage of life. it makes use of a lot of peter pan imagery- (hooks- captain hook, tick tock- the alligator) and is about getting old and needing someone, and feeling useless without them.

    General CommentThere seems to be a lot of melancholy in this song. To me it refers to a couple, together for some time, perhaps one is going through a typical mid-life crisis, reminiscing about their past together (simplicity, adventure, fantacy, etc.) and the realisation of perhaps not having failed to leave a legacy behind...This is brillaint : "I want to be someone...Who someone would want to be". Make any sense?

    General CommentAs a BIG Marillion fan since a child (cheers Dad) I'd rate this one way up there. I'm really not keen on the 'I want to be someone, someone would want to be' line because it's self pitying and looking for approval from others, but the rest of the lyrics are haunting especially the echoing of certain words. - Wendy e, e, e, e, e, darling, ing, ing, ing, ing, tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock, tock, etc.

    When the lyric echoing/fade out kicks in at the same time as the instrumental climax....well....what can I say?
