Today you stepped aside, and let me in
Your wounds they cry like tears of crimson
You sing a quiet tune
You've created breathing room
For everyone else, but yourself
Everyone else, but you're selfish

You do it for a dream
You do it just to breathe
You ended it with minor chords and tragic keys

Today you took a turn, and it blocked you in
Your question of the burning is answering
You sing a quiet tune
You've created breathing room
For everyone else, but yourself
Everyone else, but you're selfish

You do it for a dream
You do it just to breathe
You do it for the sadness in your waking sleep
You do the scene
You started it for free
You ended it with minor chords and tragic keys

I'll take some string and a can,
And connect the other end to you
Could I be so cool,
I'd ask you secrets of fame,
And how to leave it in flames and step into the fire, fire, fire

You're selfish
You do it for a dream
You do it just to breathe
You do it for the sadness in your waking sleep
You do it for the scene
You started it for free
You ended it with minor chords and tragic keys

You do it for the scene
You started it for free
You ended it with minor chords and tragic keys

You do it for the scene
You started it for free
You ended it with minor chords and tragic keys

You do it for the scene
You started it for free
You ended it with minor chords and tragic keys


You sing a quiet tune
You've created breathing room
For everyone else, but yourself
and tragic keys
