Chalk Farm – When Something Becomes Nothing lyrics

You, the candlelight and me
Are as peaceful as a moving train
You're as far as I can see
From the person that you once had been

Trade the life you broke into
For the things you see in me
All the while you swagger through
Am I too demanding?

Oh, it's a shame to me
How the sun can shine so brightly
You can hardly see
And then you end up screaming

Show me something
Do you receive what you want?
And you say, "Oh, no, it's nothing"
Then walk away

If I said show me something
Would you receive what you want?
And you say, "Tell me nothing"
Release me

The shadow across the open road
Shines a light on what we used to know
How much blind have we become
When our minds are made up to the foe

Helping sight reveals the truth
Of the bitterness of men
No surprises left in view
Am I understanding?

Oh, it's a shame to me
How the sun can shine so brightly
You can hardly see
And then you end up screaming

Show me something
Do you receive what you want?
When you say, "Oh, no, it's nothing"
Then walk away

If I said show me something
Would you receive what you want?
And you say, "Don't tell me nothing"
Save me

Oh, it's a crying shame
How the sun can shine so brightly
In your open face
And still you end up screaming

Show me something
Would you receive what you want?
And you say, "Oh, no, it's nothing"
Then walk away

If I said show me something
Would you receive what you want?
And you say, "Don't tell me nothing"
Release me, release me

I said, show me something
Do you receive what you want?
And you say, "Oh, no, it's nothing"
Then walk away

If I said, show me something
Would you receive what you want?
And you say, "Don't tell me nothing"
Save me
