so what were you thinking
when you brought me along,
i am not what you wanted,
and i can tell by your songs.

it becomes easy to fool you
and to string you along,
cause i'm the king of the liars,
and i've been it so long.

when i was a child, i believed everyone
then i slowly and surely i forgot who i was
then later in loving, i again took the chance
and i stood there just watching as you murdered my heart.

so i guess that's the answer that's the way things will go,
when you believe in the shadow, you are playing the fool.

so i moved to the city and pretended my best
and i learned from the scarring, just like all of the rest.

so don''t tell me i'm not good enough to stay
i've given you all that i've got
i've learned so much from watching you injure me,
and grown more from watching you fall.

so i move place to place and put pictures on walls,
that my friends kindly gave to me,
and i love them all.
and i try to relax in the comfort of home,
but the idea escapes me,
i guess i'm better to roam.

all the houses i've slept in, all the i's that i've known,
they are all there inside me as i sit here alone
and if i seem somewhat distant and a little afraid,
it is only the outcome of the choices i've made

so i whisper my wishes and i send them away,
in a letter to no one, in a town with no name.
so thank you for bringing me here
its been so long since i've felt so good,
and i know it will go on its way,
but for now i'll just sit and quietly enter the daze.
