leave your trophies
& your golden wings
there by the door of my room
i don't need to know where you've been
or where we're going to

you don't need to be funny for me
don't have to always be strong
you don't need to try to be beautiful
'cause beauty was yours all along

so kiss the hem of st christopher's coat
& go along your way -
i can't figure out what you're thinking about
but i'm sure that it's not me

so kiss the hem of st christopher's coat
& go along your way
we by design walk a very fine line
and i think that's okay

take your trophies
and your golden wings
go back to your beautiful crowd
i don't need to know where you've been
but where are you going now

    General CommentHe's saying goodbye to someone and wishing them luck on the trip away from his life (St. Christopher is the patron saint of safe travel); where the person didn't have to wear a mask and pretend they were so great in front of him (the part about leaving the trophies and golden wings by the door of his room)...so now theyre going back out into the world where they have to pretend to be great to please the admiring crowd.

    Gary Jules is brilliant.
