"I'm Dying"by Mr. Blink
 

I'M DYING - Words by Mike Caucutt


I'm dying - dying on the outside
and I'm crying - crying on the inside
and I'm trying to understand you
but you're lying - once again
and you - make it so difficult sometimes
with your mind - going two directions at the same time
and you - keep putting me down and putting me up
like a flag - on a flagpole
I'm flying in the air so free
but I'm lying - because I know that can't be me
Yes, I'm dying - dying on the outside
and I'm crying - crying on the inside
Well I wish - I wish I was a bird
then I could fly away - from you
flying high - try and reach the blue
I can see it - but I can't get there
I'm dying - dying on the outside
and I'm crying - crying on the inside
well I'm sighing - slowly to myself
because you're lying - once again
Someday - when this world begins to slow
I will leave - leave an empty shell
I'll be gone - I will be so far gone away - into the blue
I'll be gliding - nothing to hold me
Just flying - through space and time
Flying high - someday I will die
then I will - be flying high - flying high - flying high - flying high
