lyrics

"All that I'm not is now all that you want me for
All that I am is what drives you away
But all that I am could be chalked on the sidewalk
So why not just love me this way?"
These were her words to the dark of the TV
As she wonders where the night has gone
She left it with you and believed you would share it
Alone now she waits for the dawn

"Don't look away
Please
Tell me what you want to see instead
Please
My heart is a thorn to my head
Please
Don't look away"

Heroes and villains can get on for hours
Till they become men and just do what they're told
And a woman's a girl till she chooses to trust you
And she hasn't a friend in the world

"Don't look away
Please
Tell me what you want to see instead
Please
My heart is a thorn to my head
Please
Don't look away
Don't look away
Don't look away"

Silhouette surfing the wave of the future
She'll disappear when the light is gone
You are the wave from which she won't recover
And love is a dream with a pillow you smothered
And justified all of her fear of the other
And as she is gasping for air underwater
She admits now the lie too painful to uncover
You did nothing so you did nothing wrong
Still why does she say why does she cry
Why does she pray to the TV tonight

"Don't look away
Please
Tell me what you want to see instead
Please
My heart is a thorn to my head
Please
Don't look away
Don't look away"

Adrian Bourgeois Burbank, California

"Just when a tune has ingratiated itself into your memory, in the way the kind of pop music does that inspires one to whistle, the melody sweeps upward, turning and dancing in that unpredictable way that a flock of birds does when it moves toward the sun." (SN&R)
"Lush with strings, angelic harmonies and melodies that swoop and soar like a hook-laden roller coaster"(Sacramento Bee)
