The city slips away too soon
Tonight she's wide awake
Making small talk with Mr. Moon
Singing louder than the rain

On nights like these she can be herself
She forgets I'm there but it's just as well
I always feel like I'm by myself
And she never will, oh never will

She says she hates the fact that men can see
She wants to tear the eyes
out of everything
What makes her feel the way she feels

Like everything is nothing
What makes her see the things she sees
Like everything that's wrong with me
I guess I should stop trying to figure her out

I should know by now that I'm not allowed
Now I know this is not allowed
If I want to keep her coming 'round
She says she hates the fact that men can see

She wants to tear the eyes
out of every living thing
Oh God!
I grin

Does that include me... does that include...
She hides her reflection with pictures from magazines
She gets so angry when I don't see what she sees
But if I'm supposed to sit and watch her tear herself apart,

then maybe I was wrong
Maybe she never really knew me at all
Hello, hello
Did you find your self-esteem

Should I suppose that he's giving you what you need
And so it goes and slowly I begin to breathe
Hello, hello
I'm so sorry it wasn't me

The city slips away too soon
Tonight she's wide awake
Making small talk with Mr.Moon
He listens to everything she says and doesn't try to understand

Never expects to be let in
He just hangs on every word
That comes from the mouth of this little girl
