He's so independent
He acts like he couldn't care less for us all
He's someone's descendant, their child
Though he'll never acknowledge their call

He's afraid to feel loved
Yet I know he's afraid not to be
And he'll laugh and he'll cry
And someday he'll die, just like me

Just like me, he's settling a score with a world
That wants a reason every time you turn around
Just like me, he's lookin' for a door standing open
Saying, "Welcome, come and lay your troubles down"
Just like me

If he'd drop his defenses
You'd see through the stone to the heart of the man
But the moment he senses you've seen him
He'll leave you as fast as he can

He'll return to his shadows
Where no one can look in and see
And he'll wake in the night
And cry like a child just like me

Just like me, he's settling a score with a world
That wants a reason every time you turn around
Just like me, he's lookin' for a door standing open
Saying, "Welcome, come and lay your troubles down"
Just like me

Well, I've seen him looking for someone to tell him
"You're doin' just fine"
And the songs that he sings
They have loneliness woven between every line

There are no strings to hold him
I guess you could call him so free
Yes, he's free to be lonely and empty
And lost just like me

Just like me, he's settling a score with a world
That wants a reason every time you turn around
Just like me, he's lookin' for a door standing open,
Saying, "Welcome, come and lay your troubles down"
Just like me
