It's not surprising it could end like this
Your eyes are open even when you kiss
You're so distant
So cold, so resistant
You see the world in only gray and black
Now how can anybody live like that
Without screaming, without dying for dreaming

And you stare out the window at the passing cars
And you look at the sky, thank your unlucky stars
No you're never quite happy right where you are

So you keep on inventing shadows
Where there are none, no there are none
Yeah you keep on inventing shadows
Where there are none
You don't even see the sun, can't you see the sun

It can't be shocking I might want to leave
The way you're living's like you're half asleep
You just drain me
If I go who could blame me

And you stare out the window at the passing cars
And you look at the sky, thank your unlucky stars
No you're never quite happy right where you are, right where you are, with all that you are

And so you keep on inventing shadows
Where there are none, no there are none
Yeah you keep on inventing shadows
Where there are none
You don't even see the sun, can't you see the sun

You're so young, so beautiful, so flawless in my eyes
Don't you know the world shines
Every time you smile
Why can't you just smile

So you keep on inventing shadows
Where there are none, no there are none
Yeah you keep on inventing shadows
Where there are none
You don't even see the sun, can't you see the sun

You dim the lights in the world I see
How I wish that I could still believe
Time to save me
If I go, who could blame me

    I think this song is so full of soul and i can kinda relate. There are things that have happened in my life that has kinda made me distant and i build this wall between me and others. Sometimes i don't even feel like i'm really living. So in the end i don't get emotional with anybody but this means they aren't also content with me and some people leave me because i don't trust them. I'm not happy with who i am. I don't wish anybody to live the way i do.
