Let's walk on by, this time, this time
Let's keep it right, just like it used to be
It's such a long and wasted ride
When you're on your own, when you're all alone
I throw a word in for the real men
Hey driver man, hey cardboard man
On a cardboard scene you know it's never make-believe
Now, do you believe in me?
And freedom's only what they strip away from you
You fight back
But what you gain is nothing like it

Let's walk on by
It's a mellow song and I mean it well
So don't you trample me down!
Cause it took a lot of nerve
For me to try and come across
Let's do it, let's do it right
I tried, I tried so hard I could only fail
Let's do it, let's do it right

Right now, right now
And don't you ever walk away from me
I'm gonna need you round for the rebound
I search myself for sheets of paper
Some little stain, some little stain
And this is all conclusive evidence
Everybody rise, I rest my case


Right now, right now
I find it hard being strong these days
I find it very hard, hard
And even harder in the night-time
When all these clouds come down
I find I'm very, very, hard to define
I could not be electric animal's, front-man
All distorted, all noise
And this is never, ever, my familiar voice

    General Commentmadrugada OMG, and i dont believe in god.

    An ex lover returns suggesting that they should be together again "just like it used to be"
    he's considering that cause its a long time since he's alone, and the part about
    "freedom's only what they strip away from you..you fight back but what you gain is nothing like it"
    is about meeting that special someone that you need so much and want in your life but after he/she is gone you feel like that person took away your freedom cause you dont want to love again..you dont want to be free anymore, but you are..you just dont feel free..you feel attached to that person
    like you're meant for each other..thats the worse thing that can happen to anyone.
    so later he says.."dont you trample me down cause it took a lot of nerve for me to try and come across" he don't want to try again..even if he wants to..the pain is still there, and he remembers all the trying to make it right..and the big fat failure in the end. (i tried so hard i could only fail -genius-)
