I talk of things I've never done
how I turned my life around
about the love I finally found
but somehow couldn't come tonight

you smile and call me fascinating
I should be proud of all those things
I'm just a fool on hidden strings
not half the man I claim to be

a sweat soaked paper in my hand
a list of things I tried to say
words I thought would make you stay
I'm such a naive idiot

we need to stay in touch, you say
I nod and say how nice it was
the curtain falls without applause
there's simply nothing left of me
