Cover me with your blanket
Get me out of this world
For a spell

Take me away
To the world of dreams
Where I'm not afraid of silence
Where I'm not afraid to think

I'm not so stupid I can't see
There's nothing up ahead of me
I'm not so stupid I don't know
About all of the wrong roads

The wrong roads
The wrong roads
Cover me with your blanket

Somehow I always knew
I would not make it
I'm the sum of my mistakes
I've only got myself to blame

But what's on show -
Do I want any of it anyway?
Can there only be

One ending
One end for me
Unsure and shy
It was easier not to try

Now I'm feeling lost and old
And that there's nowhere left to go
I'm forever seeing
Myself running

Heading for the horizon
Escaping, escaping
The choices
I have made

I chose this place
I chose this place
