Running out of breath
Chasing down the big parade,
Rising up my hand,
Thought I'd beg the marching band to play, for me
All of these illusions,
They really mean the world to me, me

Don't make me out to be this helpless child of misery,
Maybe love is what I need
But not your sympathy

In and out of space,
I'm always somewhere in between,
I try to make commands
But instead I make a mess of things, for me

I try paint by numbers,
But nothing's black and white to me

Don't make me out to be this helpless child of misery,
Maybe love is what I need
But not your sympathy

Nothing and no one can make your lies the truth, and no one can stand inside your shoes but you

Don't make me out to be this helpless child misery,
Maybe love is what I need
But not your sympathy
But not your sympathy

    General CommentI fell in love with this song the first time I heard it..I guess the message is quite clear down here.
    ''Running out of breath

    Rising up my hand,

    I guess that in that part he's talking about what you feel when you're in love that he doesn't want this person's sorry he truly wants to be loved by that person because he feels kinda lost....
