I'll wake up in the afternoon
Show restraint of speaking to you
Last night you would have killed to be there
They think that they know where you are

Your room looks the same way you left it
I'll keep quiet and make this a good thing
Maybe sympathy will catch your ears
I'm praying that your days are well

In the street that I walked down to find her
Something made it hard to swallow
Taking steps towards the climax and a part
From the way we thought we knew

I think I'll condemn all your friends
At least there's someone to greet them
I'm sure they'll claim they knew you better
Flattery will be getting them nowhere

A myth of you will be familiar
If one day I choose to regress
I'll demonstrate a repaired product
There's no chance, or use, to pretend

In the street that I walked down to find her
Something made it hard to swallow
Taking steps towards the climax and a part
From the way we thought we knew

And for me it sounds about right
Fenced in the glow from outside

Like a glow from my back lights
I'm becoming a show
Let your beauty unfold
Clench what you've bestowed

In the street that I walked down to find her
Something made at heart to swallow

    General Commenti believe it's "something made it hard to swallow" instead of "something made at heart to swallow"


    but great job on the rest of it :)

    General CommentI could be wrong, but I think some of the lyrics MIGHT be,

    "In the street that I walked down to find her"
    Instead of "In the street that I walk, don't find her"

    I'm not crazy confident that I'm right about it though. It just made more sense to me.

    also,

    "And three sounds about pride
    fenced in the glow from outside"

    instead of
    "In through me sounds about right
    Thinstin the globe from outside"

    Which I'm a little bit more sure about.

    But again, I don't know for sure.
