lyrics

Some people have read their own biography
The spine is worn, the pages are discoloured
No space for doubt, no space for question
Their minds are curiousless
I try to get along with everyone, but I just can’t stand

Looking into empty eyes
Looking into empty eyes
A hollow smile
Looking into empty eyes

I hate it when you’re this powerless
And I want you to be strong for me
Then I cant deny the beauty in your fragility
A sensitivity beneath your masculinity

Because crying, just like music
Is the soul surfacing to breathe
In all its colours it rises, and pours out
Clean and clear, refreshed

Salty water, your tears on my side of the bed
Salty water, for all the things left unsaid
Salty water, salty water

Here tears are rare like opal in a stone
But I respect your right to want to be alone
If you accept the questions in my eye
As your hand reaches out for mine

That old dog and that old man, from what I can see
Practically live here in this park
They’re inseparable and I can’t help but wonder
If people can ever be that certain of each other’s company

So I cry to the uncompassionate London skyline
So I cry here, in this park
So I cry, to the uncompassionate London skyline,
So I cry here, in this park

Here tears are rare like opal in a stone
But I respect your right to want to be alone
If you accept the questions in my eye
As your hand reaches out for mine
