Lyrics
Hold me down lift me up
There's someone on the bedside waiting there for me
I hear my name, turn around
There's gotta be a downside, something I don't see
Around me

Hide me
Dying in the light of the room
Blind side please
I don't really want to be seen
In my own eyes

Something's wrong
Awake all night
'Cause I can feel the dark side
Closing in on me

Do you see me
As I see myself?
I promise there's a downside
Something you can't see

Hide me
Dying in the light of the room
Blind side please
I don't really want to be seen
In my own eyes

Lost in translation
Free to fall
One situation
And lose it all

Hide me
Dying in the light of the room
Blind side please
I don't really want to be seen

Hide me
Dying in the light of the room
Blind side please
I don't really want to be seen
I don't really want to be seen
In my own eyes
