Meet me by the shore And we will talk of how we used to be Hide yourself no more And we will slowly drift out to sea And all the world looks ordinary There's nothing there to see The waves will roll into the shore But the waves will not move me Secrets washed ashore And others carried out to sea Hide yourself no more And I will softly sing you to sleep You say this world is lost and loveless (lonely) with nothing left to see This world will try to break your heart But the world will not break me Carry me ashore

A figure in silhouette A passionless look that leaves you cold The smoke from a cigarette Repeating mistakes you made before I'm lost in imaginings In love with a world that never was I hold to the principle Afraid of the person I've become I know the things I have to change I can't give myself away To imaginary things I saw these signals once before And I know this sense of shame A paper tiger in the rain So long to the salad days A winter awaiting for me now I gave up the principles abandoned the world that never was So what for me now? A figure of fear and dulled regret I paint out the passionate A picture I'm trying to forget I know the things I have to change I can't give myself away To imaginary things I saw these signals once before And I know this sense of shame A paper tiger in the rain
