I'm sitting here alone again
I'm praying for time
Time to heal my wounds
And time to make up my mind
I don't want anybody to touch my soul
Just leave me alone
'Cos I've been burned once before

It is in the air, it is everywhere
The smile on your face is on a dead skull
The air is thin, my mind is filled with darkness and pain
And I am the clown who forgot how to laugh

Love brings you problems and worries
Love brings you hatred and lies
Love is never what you want it to be
So why should we fall in love

In love, in love, in love
Falling in love

I think about the past, how I was fading away
Away from reality, rebirth in midwinter pain
I can wait for hours, I can wait my whole life
I can watch the stars above and wish I'll go there
Some day...

It was in the air, it was everywhere
The smile on your face, my God it was a dead skull
The air was thin, my mind was filled with darkness and pain
And I was the clown, but I couldn't laugh

I will never watch myself turn back again
My suffered brain just screams: "No more!"
As I know that you will find it everywhere
So I just want to be alone

Alone, alone, alone
Leave me alone
Falling in love, in love, in love
Falling in love
Leave me alone, alone, alone
Leave me alone, alone, alone
I'm sick of you
I'm sick of it all
I'm sick of everything...!

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
