Barenaked Ladies - Aluminum Lyrics

Barenaked Ladies Everything to Everyone cover art

How in every visible way you shine
As if the stars in your wake align
Almost impossible to malign

But just below where you shine you burn
Although I know it, I never learn
Just goes to show that I can't discern

[Chorus]
Aluminum to me
Aluminum to some
You can shine like sliver all you want
But you're just Aluminum

Illuminating just what you want to show
You'll never rust, but I'll never know
You can't be trusted; I can't let go

[Chorus]

Every time you're here I forget
When you leave, you leave only regret
Every time you're near I forget
Everything

You're so lightweight, how can you survive
Recycling moments from others lives?
You're not as precious as you contrive

[Chorus]
