If I lose my temper
You lose your head
If I lose my temper
You lose your head

Don’t cry tonight
You know I'm there so don’t be scared tonight
Breathe deep the air
You know these walls cannot contain the lights too bright

Where have your instincts led you so far?
Shut out the world but at what cost?
You have played your part
Head above the clouds
Head above the clouds

Don’t cry tonight
You know I'm there so don’t be scared tonight
Breathe deep the air
You know these walls cannot contain the lights too bright

I’ll get to the point
You’ve worn out your welcome
Choke on words you’ll soon regret
All sense of restraint out the door
If you tried at all you failed
I guess that means goodbye

The time has come
surrender your self
The time has come
surrender your self

    My InterpretationI think it has to do with either an internal conflict or an argument with somebody. Either way I love the song.
