You used to love a lot of things
You used to love talking
This you never told me about
If it's what your eyes were saying

I already figured it out
I could just tell it was bad
I couldn't tell how bad
You never took off your shades

And you stayed like that for days
I guess your pain never weakened
Your cool blood started burning
Scorching most of us in the flames

But there are things you can't change
There are things you can't change
You called that the curse of a human's life
That you couldn't change

Said you'd never be old enough
Or young enough
Tall enough
Or thin enough

Or smart enough
Or brave enough
Rich enough
Pretty enough

Strong enough
Good enough
Well you were to us
You wanted silence by itself

Just the word
You wanted peace by itself
Just to learn
There were things you couldn't change

You got the dull pounding rain
You got the last car in the long desert train
You almost made it
You almost made it again
