Lyrics

OH BABY, WHY AM I WORRIED NOW?
DID SOMEONE MAKE A FOOL OF ME BEFORE I COULD SHOW THEM HOW IT'S DONE?

I CAN'T GIVE UP ACTING TOUGH
IT'S ALL THAT I'M MADE OF
CAN'T SCRAPE TOGETHER QUITE ENOUGH
TO RIDE THE BUS TO THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE FACT THAT I NEED LOVE

THERE WERE TIMES
THAT I TRIED
ONE FOR EVERY GLASS OF WATER THAT I SPILLED
NEXT TO THE BED
RETCHING PENNIES IN A BOILING WELL
IN A DREAM
THAT AT ONCE BECOMES A FOUNDRY OF MUTE AND HEAVY BELLS
THEY SHAKE ME DEAF AND DUMB
SAY SOMEONE MADE A FOOL OF ME
‘FORE I COULD SHOW THEM HOW IT'S DONE

IT WAS SO CLEAR TO ME
THAT IT WAS ALMOST INVISIBLE
I LIE ACROSS THE PATH WAITING
JUST FOR A CHANCE TO BE
A SPIDER WEB TRAPPED IN YOUR LASHES
FOR THAT, I WOULD TRADE YOU MY EMPIRE FOR ASHES
BUT I CHOKE IT BACK, HOW MUCH I NEED LOVE
