Are you really so afraid of being all alone
Do you really have the time to play tricks
Don’t you ever feel the fever in your heart of stone
Do you still nibble on your fingertips

Do you really see no stars above your head
do you tell me you’re completely out of luck
Are you still unsatisfied
being attracted by what makes you stuck

You get down on your knees
always promising that you’re gonna make your stand
You’re always in your own mind
twisting up the dust and the sand

How many horses have you ever ridden fast
How often have you tried to change your seat
How fast you’ve been transformed from present into past
trying to make your life less incomplete

Why is it better, what is it for
To lie here in tatters and crawl on the floor
You’re so confusing, what do you want
This ain’t amusing and it’s more than a song

You are in trouble, you’re always out of sleep
I can see your scars and I can see you bleed
You`re the only one who can walk in your shoes
So don`t ask me to feel sorry for you, sorry for you

I’m standing at the doorway in the rain
Watching your face in the window
Reflecting like a mirror all your pain
Slowing vanishing like a ghost

And later on after some time has passed
I turn around and get into my car
I turn the key and put the radio on
Drivin’ away fast and far
I’d better keep on playing my guitar

Why is it better, what is it for
To lie here in tatters and crawl on the floor
You’re so confusing, what do you want
This ain’t amusing and it’s more than a song

You are in trouble, you’re always out of sleep
I can see your scars and I can see you bleed
You`re the only one who can chase away your blues
So don`t ask me to feel sorry for you, sorry for you

Why is it better, what is it for
To lie here in tatters and crawl on the floor
You’re so confusing, what do you want
This ain’t amusing and it’s more than a song

You are in trouble, you’re always out of sleep
I can see your scars and I can see you bleed
You`re the only one who has an option to choose
So don`t ask me to feel sorry for you, sorry for you

Sorry for you
