I come from a land of mystery.
People keep to themselves 'cause it's easy.
Everyone has a place to hide away,
I think I'm there most of the day.

I wanted to show you my fav'rite place.
I know you don't really care; I can see it in your face.
Let's stop pretending; it's a waste of time.
Go call your girlfriend; well here's a dime.

[Chorus]
I'm just a violet, reaching for the sun
The shade from behind is creeping closer.
If only I knew the things I should
Then I would be with you.

Where are you going? Come and fly with me.
This is the longest game of Hide-and-Seek in history.
Maybe you'll stop playing; hours are gone, but forgot me,
Left me in the cold.

I hear you whispering from the next room.
If you have something to say, my friend, tell me too.
I don't really give a damn if you don't like me.
At least then I'll know to stay away from you.

[Chorus]

Time marches on, I feel lots of, lots of pain.
I pass the hours dreaming; it's what I do best.
Why don't you come over here and stay a while?
Or am I not good enough for you?

I lie awake and wrap the covers tight;
You smoke your last cigarette and turn out the light.
All I wanted was some company,
And now you're miles away.

[Chorus x2]

I'm just a violet,
Wilting in the sun.
If only I knew the things I should,
Then I'd know where you are...
