  • I smoke my face in, night after night
    To numb the pain and stop the world spinning round and round
    But how was I to know that in my mind I'm not so pure?
    Look into my eyes, you can see I'm many different people

    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental
    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental

    I'm not a drinker, I try it every night
    I force it down to throw it up and start all over again
    But I will climb a tower just to stick my flag on top
    And look down on everyone, help me to salute the people

    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental
    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental
    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental
    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental

    You have tried to resist the pain but you know you're not alone
    But you know you're not alone
    I have tried to resist the pain but now I'm all alone
    And now I'm all alone

    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental
    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental
    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental
    You shone a light on my life, now I'm just sentimental
