  • Thanks for the offer, but I'm not scared
    Spend my birthday alone
    Miles of water, sun, and sand
    A gift I give myself
    No one in sight for help
    I walked at random 'til I lost everyone
    Some corner of Hyde Park
    Got to my knees and planted hands
    And let the world go dark
    Wondering where you are
    Somewhere spinning like me
    Oh, baby, I can dream

    First they'll think you're lost, but you're not
    It's the easy feeling
    Yeah, there's every chance you could crash if you don't believe it
    Why spend more time in a lie if it goes on that way?
    Love don't come to you
    It just was there always

    My room tonight has its own name
    The key says Pol Roger
    I'd say get on and close the bedpost curtains
    Pretend the ground is fire
    I know that'd make you smile
    Are you alone like me?
    Alone but not lonely

    First they'll think you're lost, but you're not
    It's the easy feeling
    Yeah, there's every chance you could crash if you don't believe it
    Why spend more time in a lie if it goes on that way?
    Love don't come to you
    It just was there always

    First they'll think you're lost, but you're not
    It's the easy feeling
    Yeah, there's every chance you could crash if you don't believe it
    Why spend more time in a lie if it goes on that way?
    Love don't come to you
    It just was there always
