Evaporated

Album: Whatever and Ever Amen (1997)
  • What I've kept with me
    And what I've thrown away
    And where the hell I've ended up
    On this glary, random day
    Were the things I really cared about
    Just left along the away
    For being too pent up and proud

    Woke up way too late
    Feeling hungover and old
    And the sun was shining bright
    And I walked barefoot down the road

    Started thinking 'bout my old man
    It seems that all I want to get into a car and go
    Anywhere

    Here I stand
    Sad and free
    I can't cry
    And I can't see
    What I've done
    Oh God what have I done?

    Don't you know I'm numb, man
    No I can't feel a thing at all
    'Cause it's all smiles and business these days
    And I'm indifferent to the loss

    I think that there's a soul somewhere
    That's leading me around
    I wonder if she knows which way is down

    Here I stand
    Sad and free
    I can't cry
    And I can't see
    What I've done
    Oh God what have I done?

    I poured my heart out
    I poured my heart out
    It evaporated
    See

    Blind man on a canyon's edge
    Of a panoramic scene
    Maybe I'm kite that's flying high and random
    Dangling on a string
    Or slumped over in a vacant room
    Head on a stranger's knee
    I'm sure back home
    They think I've lost my mind

    Here I stand
    Sad and free
    I can't cry
    And I can't see
    What I've done
    Oh God what have I done? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
