Let me out
Don't tell me everything
Start it out
Like any other day

Must have gave the wrong impression
Don't you understand where I belong?
Well I'm not the one

Stand again
They say nothing comes for free
And that's the truth
Been livin' in a fantasy
Slip and slide a head-trip heaven
Self denial's such a wonderful and powerful thing
Well I'm not the one

The morning dove sings
With two broken wings
Carry me home
I'm not afraid
The stars in my eyes
Were shimmerin' lights
Carry me home
Don't let me fade away

Stop the press
The kid's light is growin' dim
It took a month long slide
And the world came cavin' in

When you self desruct
You wind up looking for a glimmer of hope
But the writing's on the wall
I'm not the one

The morning dove sings
With two broken wings
Carry me home
I'm not afraid
The stars in my eyes
Were shimmering lights
Carry me home
Don't let me fade

Just how thick is your skin?
Just how sharp are your teeth?
Oh-ohh-oh
You've got a lot to learn

Is there somewhere else
That I can win?
Is there something else
To start over again?
From the summit's edge
To the cutting room floor
I will be afraid no more

The morning dove sings
With two broken wings
Carry me home
I'm not afraid
The stars in my eyes
Were shimmering lights
Carry me home
Don't let me fade

Carry me home
Carry me
(Oh oh ohh, oh oh ohh)
