So today I wrote a song for you, Ďcos a day can get so long And I know itís hard to make it through When you say thereís something wrong So Iím trying to put it right, Ďcos I want to love you with my heart All this trying has made me tired And I donít know even where to start Maybe thatís a start Before you know itís a simple game That you play filling up your head with rain And you know youíve been hiding from your pain In the way, in the way you say your name CHORUS And I see you hiding your face in your hands Flying so you wonít land You think no one understands No one understands (repeat main riff) So you hunch your shoulders and you shake your head And your throat is aching but you swear No one hurts you, nothing could be said Anyway youíre not here enough to care And youíre so tired you donít sleep at night As your heart is trying to mend You keep it quiet but you think you might Disappear before the end And itís strange that you cannot find any strength to even try To find a voice to speak your mind When you do, all you want to do is cry Well maybe you should cry And I see you hiding your face in your hands Talking Ďbout far-away lands You think no one understands Listen to my hands
