Lyric Portrait Of An Apology


Look what I ve done
This picture I ve painted
It looks like my heart
Or what still remains

Convinced of the weight
Your interpretations
Are not what I see
I wish they could be

I remember it much redder
I remember it much brighter

[Chorus:]

Can you stay for a while
Try to imagine this
Could you be for a while
I can t remember it
Could you fall for a while
I can t escape from this

I ll try to explain
The way that the frame
Doesn t quite fit the image
Or surround the edge

It stands on display
What do you see?
Behold all the new grey
What s become of the old me

I remember it much redder
I remember it much brighter

[Chorus]

Calling, crying, ashamed of what I am not
Really failing, falling into this cage and I can t escape
I can t escape

Look what I ve done
This picture I ve painted
Doesn t quite fit
Or surround the edge
I remember it much redder

[Chorus]

I can t escape, I can t escape, I can t escape
