First it comes on quiet creeping slow.
Clever words and phrases only stain.
I remain so
Lost and buried under
Everything that I need.
When all I want is you.

I've been here so very long and
Every word is calculated
Never questioned or debated
All these practiced poses
I could wreck it if I had to
But I'm the wreck so what would that do,
My masterpiece will fall apart;
It was over before the start

If I burn out and slip away.
If this is just a part I portray.
If this is just a part I portray.
You're beautiful
Can I hide in you awhile
This is just a part I portray.
Can I hide in you awhile

They keep mostly to themselves;
Don't make a sound in case they hear you.
It only hurts me to be near you.
Keep those tired eyes closed
Careful follow my instruction
And I will show you self-destruction.
This masterpiece is only mine,
Entirely guilty by design.

If I burn out and slip away.
If this is just a part I portray.
If this is just a part I portray.
You're beautiful
Can I hide in you awhile
This is just a part I portray.
This is just a part I portray.

I just can't let it let it out
I just can't let out
I just can't let it let it out
I just can't let out
I just can't let it let it out
I just can't let out
I just can't let it let it out
I just can't let out

If this is just a part I portray,
You're beautiful
Can I hide in you awhile
You're beautiful
If this is just a part I portray
If this is just a part I portray
I don't know how it got this way
