The Jags – The Tourist lyrics

Wake in the middle of the night
Think of another reason
Forever is a long, long time
Break her heart just to prove it

Special devices for the pain
Make sure you use all of them
Never fall in that trap again
Won't bother to look for one

You feel like a foreigner
Bright lights burn your eyes
Try so hard to understand
Or learn to despise
You feel like a foreigner
Paralyzed, locked inside

Turn all your modern feelings off
See what it's like without them
Then let yourself be drawn back in
What if you call it wisdom?

A beckoning finger points at you
Look at your watch in panic
Is it the darkness you're afraid
Tricking you with it's magic

You feel like a foreigner
Bright lights burn your eyes
Try so hard to understand
Or learn to despise
You feel like a foreigner
Paralyzed, locked inside

You feel like a foreigner
You feel like a foreigner
You feel like a foreigner
Paralyzed, locked inside
