lyrics

Are you there, Lord?

It's me

Got another thing to ask you

It's not about the car or the broken guitar this time

If you're so humane

Then why am I this way?

Oh Lord...I think i answered my own question


Are you there, mom?

It's me

I know it's been far too long

Tell me all the stories and tired allegories from my hometown

It used to be so nice

But now it's cold as ice

I can't help thinkin' that I've worn my welcome down

It's all in your head

People like to tell me

Think positive instead

Easier said than done

It's time to let go

Of the demons in the closet

'Cause the needs of the many

Outweigh the one

Are you there, kid?

It's me

I know just what you're thinkin'

If there only was a way to make the pain go away from your heart

With darkness comes fear

And it only gets worse from here

A young malaise is a somber way to start


It's all in your head

People like to tell me

Think positive instead

Easier said than done

It's time to let go

Of the demons in the closet

'Cause the needs of the many

Outweigh the one

Are you there, love?

Hang on, I don't think that's the right word, sorry....

Are you there, friend?

It's me

Got something to tell you

It's not about the way that you occupy my daily moments

Give me a reason why

I'm not the apple of your eye

Despite the fact that they all see

How perfect we would really be

Excepting that I'm quite insane

I barely can recall your name

Or what it is that people do

When they find a love that's true

Excuse me if I seem unwound

Especially when you're not around

To see me crying
To see me crying

Are you there?
