lyrics

I keep, keep on keeping the time
And I work, work my hands to the bone
With no one here to see
With no one here to see
That I live to make up feel good
So I've done the best that i could
With much apology
With much apology
There's a silence that's unraveling the fabric of my soul
Breaking me
I'll play a bit harder
I'll sing a bit louder
Just to put my feet down on the ground
I'll take your suggestion
I'l act without question
Spinning around and around
For you, only you
I reach for something to say
But I choke, choke on every word
They're gonna laugh at me, oh
They're gonna laugh at me
I know what you wanna hear
So I'll spit it out loud and clear
How simple can it be, oh
How simple can it be
All the things that go unnoticed here will start to take their toll
Breaking me
I'll play a bit harder
I'll sing a bit louder
Just to put my feet down on the ground
I'll take your suggestion
I'll act without question
Spinning around and around
For you, only you
This is me
This is my armor down
Standing on top of the world
This is me
It's all I've got and I'm not gonna lose myself into the crowd
Into the crowd
I'll play a bit harder
I'll sing a bit louder
Just to put my feet down on the ground
I'll take your suggestion
I'll act without question
Spinning around and around
For you, only you
