Just like a pale imitation of a distant shining star
You're giving in too soon, you lasted one afternoon!
And I know you think it's better just to hide 'cause it keeps all of your chances inside
But I'd say you're giving them all away

Those people hold their heads high 'cause they figured out the world
At us, they just role their eyes 'cause we'll never sympathize, no
Just tell them they should give this thought a go, it's called recognizing your own shadow
And maybe they'll see what our eyes can see

But don't get carried away
You're no the only one
Everybody's got their demons
And despite whatever they might think is true, when all they wish they had done is held back by what they've yet to do
It doesn't mean they will fade to grey by giving it all away
I don't want to hear you say
You're giving it all away
