lyrics

Tell me who you are
Tell me who you want to be
I can take you there
I can show you the key

Show me where you sleep
I'll lay roses round your bed
And when the lights go out, go dark
I'll lay my lips upon your head
'Cause

This is who we are
This is what we do
I don't love you even though I want to
But we'll all live right up until we die
So I guess I might as well try

This is what it is
This is how it goes
I'm a stranger even though nobody knows
Maybe it's not me
Maybe it's you, too
Maybe everyone feels as alone as I do

Tell me all your fears
I'll fight them off with sword and shield
But man-made armor will only get you so far
The power's in the voice you wield

Draw me a picture
Of the way you wished I looked
Collage of magazine bodies
And damsels from your story books
Cause

This is who we are
This is what we do
Create dreams that never will come true
Pick my mind my till I'm no longer living
Hate me for being tired of forgiving

This is what it is
This is how it goes
I'm a liar from my head down to my toes
But sometimes the truth's not worth seeing
I'd rather just keep on believing
