you set me free
from the world and all its cares
we felt like millionaires
though we had nothing

my one true friend
please stay with me until the end
and help my spirit mend
and be strong once again

life is like an express train
relentlessly hurtling through the rain
towards the edge of a cliff
it makes me feel scared stiff
and i want to yell out
slam on the brakes
but there's no one there to hear
and though my spirit aches
there's nothing i can do
nothing anyone can do
cos i'm all alone
with my insanity

it's what my journey brings
like other people's things
that they want most of all
but that was never really cool
to you and me
