lyrics

You’re looking straight at me,
As you slump with your back to the wall.
Studying all the people passing by,
Gesturing with a cup in your hand.
As obscurity takes your face,
You’re grasping for grace,
While you lie, just lie in the sun.

And when you slip within your mind,
Do you attempt to live out what you desire?
Attempt to find some form of release?
And you’ll mumble and you’ll curse,
As we divert our eyes,
From your bed, from your sanctuary.

And you’re all alone,
When the sun goes down.
Yeah, you’re all alone,
When the sun goes down.

And someone tosses you coins,
As you stumble towards, a group of schoolgirls.
And they scatter; I can see the horror in their eyes,
Repulsed by your ways and frightened for their lives.
But when you pass, they all begin to laugh,
And go on their merry way home from school.

You’re looking straight at me,
But I can only imagine how you feel,
And what goes on within your mind?
But as I walk on by, we all walk on by,
As you lie, just lie in the sun.

And you’re all alone,
When the sun goes down.
Yeah, you’re all alone,
When the sun goes down.
