Living all my years in the shadow of doubt Hiding under the table 'til it's safe to come out In my heart, there's a vacancy that you can't see No, you can't see I want to tell how our life could be But the words are bottled up inside of me.
CHORUS: Pins to needles, needles to pins I'll need an axe if I want to get in Your shell is thick and your patience thin Breaking the ice, don't know where to begin
See each other on the number four train every day Trading smiles 'cross the aisle in the usual way In my mind I weave a thousand plots That leave me all tied up in knots Just as I overcome my second thoughts We reach your stop and I've blown another shot
And I want to shout (Hey! Hey!) Is there anyone in there? I open my mouth And all I get is air And I want to shout (Hey! Hey!) Is there anyone in there? I open my mouth But nothing comes out
