lyrics

I never read, it’s just not me
I stole a book from the library once and I really tried to read
But I just kept on losing focus and I always lost my place
It got frustrating
When I was young, I chewed my tongue
And I got regularly shouted at for always chewing gum
The thing about smoke and mirrors is the only thing you see is a reflection

We cannot do things we weren’t designed to do
Time to accept that I am me and you are you
Practice forgiveness
If we could we’d run away for good

I never cry, it’s not my style
I find the whole process exhausting leaking water from my eyes
If I could choose the things I feel then I would never let sadness become my first choice
I never love, I find it’s hard to love
The concept is quite alien and I’ve tried it for long enough
But if the woman of my dreams appeared in distant memories then I’d still love her

We cannot do things we weren’t designed to do
Time to accept that I am me and you are you
Practice forgiveness
If we could we’d run away for good

We cannot do things we weren’t designed to do
Time to accept that I am me and you are you
Practice forgiveness
If we could we’d run away for good

We cannot be the things we weren’t designed to be
Time to accept that you are you and I am me
Practice forgiveness
If we could we’d run away
