I don't ever wanna be seen by you
To be a man with feet of clay
And In the moment that I met you
I felt all of my dread just roll away

But like a pin in the wheel we spin
And all of them fears roll around again
Look at me now, what a state I'm in

And I don't wanna be a dog in the manger
Lapping this up only to complain
Sometimes I know I must strike you as a stranger
Sad and unsteady on my feet of clay

But like a pin in the wheel I spin
Seasonal change and prevailing winds
Come along and blow my house in
So how can I stand on my feet of clay

And all my life I've been looking for a feeling
But when I get it I get scared I feel it leaving
But if you tell me this will stay then I believe it
Cause I don't wanna let this go
All my life I've been looking for a feeling
But when I get it I get scared I feel it leaving

And I don't wanna spend our whole life together
Peaking and troughing like a cold sine wave
But it's hard to prove that I control the weather
With all of them clouds laughing in my face

But like a pin in the wheel we spin
And all of them fears they come back again
Look at me know, what a state I'm in
So how can I walk on my feet of clay

And all my life I've been looking for a feeling
But when I get it I get scared I feel it leaving
But if you tell me this will stay then I believe it
Cause I don't wanna let this go
[x2]

But every time the feeling starts to fade
I start walking on my feet of clay

And tell me how sweetly count the ways
And all of your fears will roll away
And how you complete me, I can't say
But you put that steel to my feet of clay
[x2]

(And all my life I've been looking for a feeling)
You put that steel to my feet of clay
[x2]
