It's the quiet night that breaks me.
I cannot stand the sight of this familiar place.
It's the quiet night that breaks me,
Like a dozen papercuts that only I can trace.

All my books are lying useless now.
All my maps will only show me how to lose my way.

Oh call my name.
You know my name.
And in that sound,
Everything will change.
Tell me it won't always be this hard.
I am nothing without you,
But I don't know who you are.

It's the crowded room that breaks me:
Everybody looks so luminous, and strangely young.
It's the crowded room that's never heard.
No one here can say a word of my native tongue.

I can't be among them anymore.
I fold myself away before it burns me numb.

Oh call my name.
You know my name.
And in your love,
Everything will change.
Tell me it won't always be this hard.
I am nothing without you,
But I don't know who you are.

I am nothing without you,
But I don't know who you are
