HIDE IN YOUR SHELL

Hide in your shell cos 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 you eyes of steel?

Sheltered behind painting your mind and playing joker

Too frightening (to listen to a 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 (you got demons in your closet)

Saying life’s begun to cheat you

Friends are out to beat you

Grab onto what you can scramble for

Don’t let the tears linger on inside now

Cos 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 believed the saying the cure of 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 waiting (someone to give an answer)

But what you see is just illusion (what you see is just illusion)

You’re surrounded by confusion (you’re surrounded by confusion)

Saying life’s begun to cheat you

Friends are out to beat you

Grab onto what you can scramble for

Don’t let the tears linger on inside now

Cos 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

I wanna know…

I wanna know…

I wanna know…

I wanna know you…

I wanna know you…

Well let me know you…

I wanna know you…

Oh I wanna touch you…

Please let me near you…

Let me hear you

Can you hear what I’m saying?

Well I’m hoping, I’m dreaming, I’m prayin’

I know what you’re thinkin’

See what you’re seein’

Never, never let yourself go

Hold yourself down, hold yourself down

Why’d ya hold yourself down?

Why don’t you listen, you can

Trust me

There’s a place I know the way to

A place there is no need to feel you

Feel that you’re all alone.

Hear me

I know exactly what you’re feeling’

Cos all your troubles are within you

Please begin to see that I’m just bleeding too

Love me, love you

Loving is the way to

Help me, help you

Why must we be so cool, oh so cool?

Oh we’re such damn fools…
