When Karma Was King – No One Ever Sees lyrics

I lie awake in my bed
The echoes in the hallway like voices in my head
I draw the shades I pace the floor
I live with all my secrets behind closed doors

And the night turns inside of me
Tiny waves they crash and then roll back to sea
When I scream out loud, I do it quietly
So no one ever sees, so no one ever sees

I hear the wind
It’s 6am
The comfort of the shadows
As the dawn is closing in
I want to sleep like a child
And live inside those dreams for a little while

But I can’t stop my fear from calling
Thoughts racing back and forth between my eyes
All this future right in front of me
But I always catch myself looking behind
