I sing myself to sleep
Secrets I can't keep
Swing from high to deep
Hope that God exists

My life is out of control
So let it flow
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
In sympathy
Now I'm relieved to hear
It's hard to carry on

It's worse than it was before
I could live with being poor
Those who feel the breath of sadness
Those who find they're touched by madness
Those who find themselves ridiculous

In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate
