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 your eyes of steel, shelter behind
Painting your mind and playing joker

Too frightening, to listen to the 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
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 believe 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 older
You're looking for, someone to give an answer
What you see is just an illusion
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
'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

I wanna know, I wanna know
I wanna know, oh, I gotta know
I wanna know you, now I wanna know you
Well let me know you, I wanna feel you
Oh, I wanna touch you
Please let me near you, let me near you
Can you hear, what I'm saying?
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
A little place, I know the way to
A place there is need to
To feel you, to feel that you're alone
Oh, hear me, I know exactly what you're feelin'
'Cause all your troubles are within you
So begin to, to see that I'm just bleeding too
Oh, love me, love you, love is the way to
Help me, help you, why must we be so cruel, oh so cruel?
Oh, we're such damn fools
