Lyrics
"What do you know about it?" "Well, you gonna tell me..."
"Why, I can't tell you. You don't - you can't - you can't explain now what's going on in your brain.
You can't tell somebody how - wha-what's happening, what's going on in your- I can't."
"Why don't you just try?"
Let those fools be loud, let alarms ring out cause you cut through all the noise
Let the days be dark, let me hate my work cause you cut through all the noise
Bring me some hope by wandering into my mind
Something to hold onto, morning, noon, day, or night

You were the light that is blinding me
You're the anchor that I tie to my brain
'Cause when it feels like I'm lost at sea
You're the song I sing again and again
All the time, all the time, I think of you all the time
Let those fools be loud, let alarms ring out cause you cut through all the noise
Let the days be dark, let me hate my work cause you cut through all the noise
Bring me some hope by wandering into my mind
Something to hold onto, morning, noon, day, or night

You were the light that is blinding me
You're the anchor that I tie to my brain
'Cause when it feels like I'm lost at sea
You're the song I sing again and again
All the time, all the time, I think of you all the time
All the time, all the time, I think of you all the time
Bring me some hope by wandering into my mind
Something to hold onto, morning, or day, or night
You were the light that is blinding me
You're the anchor that I tie to my brain
'Cause when it feels like I'm lost at sea
You're the song I sing again and again
All the time, all the time, I think of you all the time
All the time, all the time, I think of you all the time
