When falsity knocks at your door
And you're unsure, locked quiet inside
Those plastic girls they frown and mourn
But they're not you
And money lies.
And although you might close your eyes
When it tries to break your very soul
They sell themselves with open thighs
Girls at heart but made to feel so old

And with sweet restraint of breath
You rest your head against my chest
Undress the bindings of my heart
And feel it's rhythm through the dark
I still forget my best years
I miss those whom I held so dear
But just here my mind's at peace
It's walking down the beaten street back home.

I lost out when I learned your name
'Cause now I just say it again and again
To escape when I cannot bear
The arrogance of the people here
And forgive me if I seem to be so cynical
Please try and see
That this person is no longer me
It's a shadow of a boy who will be free

And with sweet restraining breath
You lay your head against my chest
My heart's beating so damn loud
You could hear it in a crowd
I always thought that my best years
Were spent with those who disappeared
But right here my mind's so clear
I could never want anything more

Tie me to your ship mast
And sail me to the sun
I'll forget about the past
When all the sorrow's done
