lyrics

Maybe we’re all alone
Maybe there’s nothing wrong
And when you shine a light
The darkness will be gone
And I will be there

Maybe you’ll think of me
As someone make believe
Is only in your dreams
Fade into fantasy
And I will be there

In everything you do
Though I don’t know if I
Can bring myself to care
And you will think of me
As someone make believe
And I will be there

When there’s no one around
Pull the curtains down
Over the pigs that you bleed
And the boys you drown
If you drown

Maybe we’re all afraid
We’re going out of style
‘Cause you can live the dream
And still not stand to smile
And I will be there

In everything you touch
Though I don’t know if I
Can bring myself to care
And you will think of me
As someone make believe
And I will be there

If only in your dreams
Fade into fantasy
And I will be there
I will be there
I will be there
I will be there
