I'm circling 'round the sun
Hoping for chance to see
You above everyone
To rescue me from this heat

I'm waiting for night to fall
And it's been days, are you sorry yet?
You took our one and final breath
When the flag was halfway down
Just look at me now

Ooh, it's like a breeze
Blowing deep beneath my skin
Ooh, won't you help me
Out of the state I'm in?

Ooh, I can't stand myself
Since you've been gone
There's nothing there to lean upon

Walk into a photograph
That waiter took so well
Ooh, if I could only laugh
Like that girl did at some hotel

I call out to anyone
But not too loud, I'm not ready yet
To share the phone or TV set
It's a long, long way to come out of this one

Ooh, it's like a breeze
Blowing deep beneath my skin
Ooh, won't you help me
Out of the state I'm in?

Ooh, I can't stand myself
Since you've been gone
There's nothing there to lean upon

And now, it seems so fatal
The last stone we left uncradeled
And I ask you, are you sorry yet?
Are you sorry yet?
'Cuz I may never come out of this one

Ooh, it's like a breeze
Blowing deep beneath my skin
Ooh, won't you help me
Out of the state I'm in?

Ooh, I can't stand myself
Since you've been gone
There's nothing there to lean upon

Ooh, it's blowing deep, blowing deep
Ooh, help me out
Help me out of the state I'm in, yeah

Ooh, the state I'm in
Ooh, it's blowing deep beneath my skin
Ooh, the state I'm in
Ooh, this is the state I'm in, yeah
Ooh, this is the state I'm in
