Heroes, idols, all we've got
We only want that which we are not
You haunt me when I look inside
And taunt me when I talk of pride

Your frightened eyes still stop me sleeping
I see you every time I'm weeping
So many promises I made
You broke them all, you'll never fade

I'll brave the darkness if you're there
You know I'll try not ot be scared
You'll turn me inside out to make me
Into the man

So where's the safety?
Some pure avoidance
Genuine hatred
Or just annoyance?

I'm never going to forget the things we said
There's no retreat, I'm seeing red
I know I'll never get you back
You make me cry, cut me some slack

And let me let you go
