There’s somethin' about you
Looks different now
These rhymes and riddles I can't figure out
Well, you smile and then you cry
And lady I can’t tell

Hey pretty lady
Won't you tell me where it hurts?
How can I help you?
You never say a word
You just hold your head
Like a queen of the universe

It’s a curse, it’s a shame
Everybody knows your name
But not what you're made of
I don’t want you to change

'Cuz the world outside your frame
Ain't all it's cracked up to be
Tell me what do you see
When you're lookin' at me?

What’s on your mind?
What’s going on inside your head?
Did I say somethin'
You should never have said?
'Cuz you're hangin' by a wire
Hangin' by a thread

I don’t wanna be the one
To let you down
I don’t wanna make it worse
For crying out loud
And I don’t wanna be just
Another face in your crowd

It’s a curse, it’s a shame
Everybody knows your name
But not what you're made of
I don’t want you to change

'Cuz the world outside your frame
Ain't all it's cracked up to be
Tell me what do you see
When you're lookin' at me?

I don’t wanna steal you away, steal you away
I don’t wanna steal you away, steal you away
I don’t wanna steal you away, steal you away
Steal you away, steal you

It’s a curse, it’s a shame
Everybody knows your name
But not what you're made of
I don’t want you to change

'Cuz the world outside your frame
Ain't all it's cracked up to be
Tell me what do you see?
