walking round blind, the sun in your eyes
you don't know if she walks right through you
and if you think twice then a moment will pass
there's no downing, we'll be gone for good
when you're carrying your heart in the palm of your hand
you're bond to drop it and that's when your done

hold your tongue, boy
hold onto your breath
'cause it's not done
'til it's done to death

walking round deaf when the sirens are crying
you don't know if she speaks right through you
staring at the floor, saying nothing you need
spinning out of control
has the world changed or is it you that's changed?
she keeps walking past your door

hold your tongue, boy
hold onto your breath
'cause it's not done
'til it's done to death

front of the crowd with the lights in your eyes
don't ever look at yourself
you've gotta drown the eyes all fixed on you
so what is it you're going to do?
you're not a savior, you're not a saint
but this is as close as you'll ever get

hold your tongue, boy
hold onto your breath
'cause it's not done
'til it's done to death

    My InterpretationI think this is John's reflection on his achievements so far. Amazing song; I love that the simplicity of the lyrics doesn't distract from the music.
