Over The Rhine – Nobody Number One lyrics

I'm afraid, I've lost the piece of me
I need the most you see
This puzzle is really just about the need
To be somebody

I'm afraid, I'm not all that you see
All along the coast of me
I'm camouflaged
A desert mirage, a nobody

But you came so close
And I assumed you were looking
For the piece of yourself that's lost
It is the hiding place inside everybody

And though we love to numb the pain
We come to learn that it's in vain
Pain is our mother
She makes us recognize each other

C'mon now, child, don't cry
C'mon now, child, don't cry
Let's give it one more try
C'mon now, child, don't cry

Sometimes, I feel so all alone here in this city
I call my home
They say, "Hey, you're one of us"
Funny, I should feel so anonymous

But I'm drawn to you
And that still small voice is talking too
And that's the voice that so seldom can get through

C'mon now, child, don't cry
C'mon now, child, don't cry
Let's give it one more try
C'mon now, child, don't cry

You can't put no band aid on this cancer
Like a twenty dollar bill for a topless dancer
You need questions, forget about the answers
Do you really wanna die this way?

That's the trouble with you and me
We always hit the bottom
Before we get set free, I'm so far down
I'm beginning to breathe

C'mon now, child, don't cry
C'mon now, child, don't cry
Let's give it one more try
C'mon now, child, don't cry
'Cause we're just too young to die

C'mon now, child, don't cry
Let's give it one more try
C'mon now, child, don't cry
C'mon now, c'mon now

C'mon now child don't cry
C'mon now, child, c'mon now
C'mon now, child, don't cry
C'mon now, c'mon now, c'mon now

C'mon now, c'mon, yeah
C'mon, C'mon now, child, don't cry
C'mon now, child, don't cry
