    Lyrics

    I walk into this room, oh
    All eyes on me now
    But i do not know the people inside

    Look straight through me these eyes
    Seeking more wisdom than i have to give away
    Realize, realize what you are

    chorus:
    What you've become just as i have
    Are you and i so unalike?
    I don't hear you just as i am
    Afraid if we dance we might die
    Mock the world, live say say,
    Why don't you know?
    Only when you live life, oh, then you become what you are

    The sea is unsparing
    We are all drifting away, away from you, i pray for you now
    Hoping to God on high is
    Like clinging to straws while drowning,
    oh realize, realize what you are

    chorus:
    What you've become just as i have
    Are you and i so unalike
    I don't hear you just as i am
    afraid if we dance we might die
    so f*** the world, live they say, why don't you know
    when you live love, then you become what you are

    but what you are
    is the beast in the lover's arms
    what you are
    and is the devil in the sweet sweet kiss
    what you are
    is missing a piece
    and what you are
    is a puzzle to me

    chorus:
    What you've become just as i have
    are you and i so unalike?
    i don't hear you just as i am
    Are we all afraid if we sing we might die
    Mock the world, live say say
    why, why dont trust me, when you give love
    Only then you become what you are, yeah

    why dont trust me
    trust yourself
    no trusting
    trust yourself

    What you are
    a little bit, a little bit ummm
    oh, what you are
    *ad lib*
    what you are
    *ad lib*
    what you are
