Hide in your shell

‘Cause the world is out to bleed you for a ride

What will you gain, making your life a little longer?

Heaven or Hell, was the journey cold

that gave you eyes of steel?

Shelter behind, painting your mind, you’re playing joker

Too frightening to listen to a stranger

Too beautiful to put your pride in danger

You’re waiting for someone to understand you

But you’ve got demons in your closet

(You’ve got demons in your closet)

And you’re screaming out to stop it

(And you’re screaming out to stop it)

Saying life’s begun to cheat you

Friends are out to beat you

Grab on to what you can scramble for

Don’t let the tears linger on inside now

‘Cause it’s sure time you gained control

If I can help you, if I can help you

If I can help you, just let me know

Well let me show you the nearest signpost

To get your heart back and on the road

If I can help you, if I can help you

If I can help you, just let me know

All through the night

As you lie awake and hold yourself so tight

What do you need

A second hand movie star to tend you?

I as a boy, I believed the saying the cure for pain was love

How would it be if you could see the world through my eyes?

Too frightening, the fire’s becoming colder

Too beautiful, to think you’re getting any older

You’re waiting for someone to bring an answer

What you see is just illusion

(What you see is just illusion)

You’re surrounded by confusion

(You’re surrounded by confusion)

Saying life’s begun to cheat you

Friends are out to beat you

Grab on to what you can scramble for

Don’t let the tears linger on inside now

Because it’s sure time you gained control

If I can help you, if I can help you

If I can help you, just let me know

Well let me show you the nearest signpost

To get your heart back and on the road

If I can help you, if I can help you

If I can help you, just let me know

‘Cause I want to know, mmm I wanna know

I wanna know, I wanna know

I wanna know, I wanna know

Won’t you, won’t you let me know you

Mmm, won’t you let me know you

I wanna know you, mmm I wanna feel you

Oh, I wanna touch you

Please let me near you

Oh let me near you

Can you hear, what I’m singing?

Well I’m hoping, I’m dreamin’, I’m prayin’

I know what you’re thinkin’, see what you’re seein’

Never ever let yourself go, hold yourself down

Hold yourself down, why don’t you hold yourself down?

Why don’t you listen? You can trust me (So what, you’re gonna take it to?)

A little place, I know the way to (So what, you’re gonna make it do?)

A place there is no need to (So what’s he gonna…)

To feel you (So what’s he gonna..)

To feel that you’re all alone (So what’s he gonna do?)

Can you hear me? (So what, you’re gonna take it to?)

I know exactly what you’re feelin’ (So what, you’re gonna make it do?)

All your troubles are within you (So what’s he gonna…)

So begin to (So what’s he gonna…) 

See that I’m just bleeding to (So what’s he gonna do?)

Oh love me, love you (So what, you’re gonna take it to?)

Loving is the way to help me, help you (So what, you’re gonna make it do?)

Why must we be so cool (So what’s he gonna…) 

Oh so cool? (So what’s he gonna…)

Oh, we’re such damn fools (So what’s he gonna do?)

I said we’re such damn fools

(So what, you’re gonna take it to?) (So what, you’re gonna make it do?)

(So what’s he gonna…) (So what’s he gonna…) (So what’s he gonna do?)

I said we’re such damn fools
