I never learnt my lesson
I mumbled down the street
I make a faint impression
Cos I am incomplete

I try to be there
In the open
I try to make you proud

And I will walk through shadows of tall buildings
Until I slowly disappear

Make myself up for tourists
And join the living dead
There's no more room for purist
My blues will turn to red

I try to be there
In the open
I try to make you proud

And I will walk through shadows of tall buildings
Until I slowly disappear (Yeah)

The colours on the side walk
And it's a mood who won't talk
Trying to uncover
The stillness of my lover
And in a skyward reaches
I know there's nothing more
To fear

I never learnt my lesson
I mumbled down the street

And I will walk through shadows of tall buildings
Until I slowly disappear

(The colours on the side walk
And it's a mood who won't talk [?]
Trying to uncover
The stillness of my lover
And in a skyward reaches
I know there's nothing more)
To fear

I never learnt my lesson
I mumbled down the street

And I will walk through shadows of tall buildings
Until I slowly disappear
