She's looking at you with her perilous eyes
And she tired of hiding and hiding to try
And if lately the way that she turns away
When you come is not personal in any way

And you're tired of waiting
and wishing and you
Are awake in the morning with nothing to do
And the way that the sun pierces into your back
Is starting to make you start wondering 'bout that

And the way the path
Takes its winding up
Is getting harder on your tired back

And when the moon is dark
And when the stars are out
You find your way into the city where the lights are on

Oh, follow all
The people looking down
Until you find
There's nothing to be found

So you asked for a challenge
You asked for a test
And your wishes were granted
Your wishes were met

And when it got harder
You seemed to forget
And you begged for mercy and begged for less

So the tickets are sold
And the trains have all left
In the meantime when you were
Between you and yourself

You're wishing that you had
The courage to pick
Up your legs to the counter
And wake up yourself
