    Lyrics

    Sometimes I wonder who am I
    The world seeming to pass me by
    A younger man now getting old
    I have to wonder what the rest of life will hold

    I hold a mirror to my face
    There are some lines that I could trace
    To memories of loving you
    A passion that breaks reason in two

    I, I, I have to think and I have to think and stop me now
    If reminisces make you frown
    One thinks of what one hoped to be
    And then faces reality

    I wonder who started all this
    Was God in love and gave a kiss
    To someone who later betrayed?
    And God, less love, sent us away?

    Sometimes I wonder who am I
    Who made the trees, who made the sky?
    Who made the storms, who made heartbreak?
    I wonder how much life I can take

    I see at last a future self
    Were you alive, I'd ask your help
    But thinking puts me in a daze
    And thinking never helped me anyway

    You always were so negative
    You never saw the positive
    You always stand upon the edge
    And dream of what it must be to be dead

    I know I like to dream a lot
    And think of other worlds that are not
    I hate that I need air to breathe
    I'd like to leave this body and be free

    You'd like to float like a mystic child
    You'd like to kiss an angel on the brow
    You'd love to solve the mystery of live
    By cutting someone's throat or removing their heart

    You'd like to see it beat
    You'd like to hold your eyes
    And though you know I'm dead
    You'd like to hold my thighs

    If it's wrong to think on this
    To hold the dead past, to hold the dead past in your fist
    Why were we, why were we given memories?
    Let's lose our minds, be set free

    Sometimes I wonder who am I
    The world seeming to pass me by
    A younger man now getting old
    I have to wonder what the rest of life will hold

    I wonder, I wonder who started all this, oh
    Was God in love and, was God in love and gave a kiss
    To someone who later betrayed?
    And God less love sent us away

    To someone who later betrayed
    God less love sent us away
    To someone who later betrayed
    God less love sent us away
