I saw your picture
It made me sorry
For all the things I never said
It seems that you have cause to worry
It seems that you don't wish me well

Behind the (victim?)
Behind the trouble
Are all the things you've not expressed
I see you standing behind your mother
I see you hiding behind the dress

So don't make sad
Don't take me down
I couldn't stand to watch you fall
'Cause everybody has a tender heart
Remember this
I couldn't bear to break it down to smithereens

I heard you crying
I learned the story
I saw the shadows behind the past
They fall behind you and creep up slowly
You're only human behind the mask


So don't take me down
I couldn't stand to watch you fall
'Cause everybody has a broken heart
Remember this
I couldn't stand to break it down to smithereens

And you say everybody is an island of their own
And you say everybody has a tender heart
Remember this
I couldn't stand to break it down to smithereens
Woh oh yeah

I couldn't bear to break it down
I couldn't bear the smithereens
I couldn't stand to break it down
I couldn't bear the smithereens

You said
Everybody is an island to themselves
Everybody is an island to themselves
Everybody is an island to themselves
Don't you know
Hey yeah yeah
Hey yeah yeah
