lyrics

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
