Do you have a wounded mind?
Have you fallen off the path of time?
Do you ever sit at night
And though you can't say why
You only feel like crying?

And everyone around you hurts
To see that you've been down to your worst.
They know that you've been drowning but
They don't see any water.

I am afraid to face my memories.
I am alone in what I know.
And all the faces that inspired me
Have taken somber tones,
They're growing old.

-I belong somewhere else
-And I believe that I'll be leaving someday
-But I don't know how.
-And I don't mean this town or house
-No it's doubt that I'm talking about
-'Cause I've been standing around
-For far too long, now.

They say you only love once you've lost,
But I don't think I trust all that talk.
The times that mattered most
Were always obvious to me.

So I will let my heart feel the breeze
And should the weather shift I'll just let it freeze
'Cause I know that there isn't any
Given remedy.

Oh, I've got awful dispositions and
I am as lonely as I am light,
But I don't need no one to tie me down,
I will just float away into the night.

-I belong somewhere else
-And I believe that I'll be leaving someday,
-But I don't know how,
-And I don't mean this town or house
-No, it's doubt that I'm talking about
-'Cause I've been standing around
-For far too long, now.

Now, it's time to sing it and sing it well
All of the horrible sounds I felt
When I fell
Before I chewed me up
And I spit me out
I held
Myself through all the pain
Still, I wanted meaning
And it just fell away
It fell away.

-Now, I belong somewhere else,
-And I believe that I'll be leaving someday,
-But I don't know how,
-And I don't mean this town or house,
-No, it's love that I've been living without,
-'Cause I've been standing around,
-I've just been standing around.

-Now, I belong somewhere else,
-And I believe that I'll be leaving someday,
-But I don't know how,
-And I don't mean this town or house,
-No, it's doubt that I'm talking about,
-'Cause I've been standing around
-For far too long, now.
