I have traveled past your window many times
I find your face too hard to define
I can touch you, hollow thing, you plague my mind
I can never go outside
I will never go back to being blind

I have wondered what you're doing
Everyday since last I asked
Are your cheeks hollow?
I don't like your eyes dark

I need shine, I need shine, I need shine
Step away from my light, I need shine

I am honest, no, not a shouter
I am reformed, reborn, and forgiven
And you've been busy but you've missed me
And I've plagued your mind
You will never go outside
You will never go back to being blind

I need shine, I need shine, I need shine
Step away from my light, I need shine
I need shine, I need shine, I need shine
Step away from my light, I need shine
