Why can`t you just forget about algebra
It´s all about you now
And all your talk of logic and formula
could never help you now
(not anymore)

`cause you were always
on the run
from the darkness in your heart
so you wear it
on the outside of your chest

I have taken the liberty
to tell your ghosts to go
bribing them with sunlight and sympathy
they`ve promised not to show
for a while

`cause you were always
the little boy
who couldn´t keep it to yourself
so your your heart
is on the outside of your chest

at the speed of light
you moved inside my home
nothing is alright
if you are still alone

And your heart
is greater than
the sum of you and everyone
but still you´re always
on the run from the poison in your lungs

    General CommentI love how this was slyly rehashed in The Cardigans album Long Gone Before Daylight.

    'i travelled east and i travelled west
    and i found a boy with a heart on his chest'.

    As featured in the song, 'Lead Me Into The Night'

    I have taken the liberty
    To tell your ghosts to go
    Bribing them with sunlight and sympathy
    They promise not to show
    For a while

    The little boy
    WHO couldn't keep it
    To yourself

    And your heart
    Is greater than
    The sum of you
    And everyone
    But still you're always
    On the run
    From the poison
    In your lungs
