Look at you now
proud and lonely
lost in belief
that you're the only one
who knows all there's to know
but there's one thing you obviously don't

If you don't let some good people get close to you
then you'll fade too soon
doubts and woe will follow wherever you go
disappointment's all you'll know
then you'll know
you've reaped what you've sown

Look at you now
pretty and lonely
float way above the lost and lowly
far too proud, too gorgeous for us down below
and so you find yourself alone
it's such a lonesome throne

Empty eyes will follow wherever you go
until you find you're on your own
then you'll know
you've reaped what you've sown

Look at you now
a figure to die for
suitors are queued with the same old lies
and so you pick as you desire
but you still end up crying

Your one disgrace, the arrogant look on your face
all your beauty thus erased
it's such a tragic waste

Look at you now
old and lonely
buckets of tears and an empty home
a life spent hiding, sheltered away from the storm
never found a flame to warm
just shallow smokes like yours

and when you die
the angels are overflown
your last pearl is all you own
then perhaps you'll know
