The Picture I Can\'t Paint

Sometimes in my mind
It feels like this
body isn\'t mine
Even on the dance floor spinning Moving in and out of time

Now n then in my head
I pretend this
really is the end
Looking up at the floor spinning
As the ceiling starts to bend

Why are you just standing there?
Can\'t you see I need a friend
Does my smile not give it away?

If you stand beside me
Can you hear the words
I can\'t say
Do you recognise me
Can you see the picture
I can\'t paint?


Sometimes in my mind
It seems like this
Lifetime isn\'t mine
Looking at the night sky spinning how did I get here this time?

Now and then in my head
I pretend this
Isn\'t anywhere
Flying round the sunshine spinning
What does it mean if it\'s not shared?

Why are you just standing there?
Can\'t you see I need a friend
Does my smile not give it away?

If you stand beside me
Can you hear the words
I can\'t say
Do you recognise me
Can you see the picture
I can\'t paint?
