Placebo – Bright Lights lyrics

Cast your mind back to the days,
When I'd pretend I was ok.
I had so very much to say,
About my crazy livin'.
Now that I've stared into the void,
So many people, I've annoyed.
I have to find a middle way,
A better way of giving.

So I haven't given up,
But all my choices, my good luck...
Appear to go and get me stuck,
In an open prison.
Now I am tryin' to break free,
Be in a state of empathy.
Find the true and inner me,
Eradicate the schism.

No-one can take it away from me,
And no-one can tear it apart.
Because a heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.

A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
No-one can take it away from me,
No-one can tear it apart.
Maybe an elaborate fantasy,
But it's the perfect place to start.

Because a heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that... Works.

    This song is about co-dependency. He gives selflessly to people out of love, but discovers that doing everything to make people happy only makes them hate you. Result is that he suffers every time he loves someone.
    His only way out is to find a way of giving that comes from a place of inner strength instead of trying to make everybody happy all the time. ("Find the true and inner me").
