lyrics

Feeling like these photo-scenes
Your world is black and in-between
the paradox you call your life
you stop to cry

I picked up where they left off
and held you 'til you were alive
And now the room is mirror-tricks and dappled light

And if you walk away I won't understand
If you walk away I won't understand

You were like a work of art
that had its canvas torn apart
and found itself an icon
in its disarray

I was just an afterthought
who practised everything he taught
But innocence can sometimes
be an enemy

If you walk away I won't understand
Oh if you walk away I won't understand

Every phase is something new
with your eyes away from mine
Oh this isn't living proof
This is only borrowed time

Feeling like these photo-scenes
Your world is black and in-between
the paradox you call your life
you stop to cry

If you walk away I won't understand
If you walk away I won't understand

I'm here waiting for you
I am here waiting for you

I picked up where they left off
and held you 'til you were alive
But now the room is mirror-tricks and dappled light
