Once upon a time she was fine
And good people knew her name
I was from the ocean floor
But I remember the look in her eyes
True love the birds would sing
And the trees would call her
Name as she walked by
Love was grand until that magic day
She turned me into nothing

(chorus)
Let's talk about something else
I'm starting not to see myself
She went so far away
But I still see her everyday
Nothing
Let's talk about something else
Can't see myself with anyone else
Please oh please
Let's talk about something else
Before I cry....
Waa, waa, waaaaa

She can't see me, but I can
I guess I am the invisible man
She can't see, what would be,
Nothing hurts worse
Than being nothing
The invisible man
Some things are hard to understand
The invisible man
Nothing worse than turning into

Once upon a time she was fine
And good people knew her name
I was from outside
Where all the animals and
All the trees were happy

What's wrong I'm standing over here
It's just weird that she can't see me
It's as if she waved her magic wand
And somehow turned me into nothing

(chorus)

The invisible man
Some things are hard to understand
The invisible man
Nothing worse than...

She can't see me, but I can
I guess I am the invisible man
She can't see, what could be
Changed her mind and turned me into nothing

    General CommentOkay, kids, not every song is about how people hate you and your kind. This is not about "high society ignoring 'normal' people". It's about a guy whose girl leaves him then pretends he doesn't exist. It's not that hard.
