my lyricsbox
I walk into this room, oh
All eyes on me now
But i do not know the people inside

Look straight through me these eyes
Seeking more wisdom than i have to give away
Realize, realize what you are

chorus:
What you've become just as i have
Are you and i so unalike?
I don't hear you just as i am
Afraid if we dance we might die
Mock the world, live say say,
Why don't you know?
Only when you live life, oh, then you become what you are

The sea is unsparing
We are all drifting away, away from you, i pray for you now
Hoping to God on high is
Like clinging to straws while drowning,
oh realize, realize what you are

chorus:
What you've become just as i have
Are you and i so unalike
I don't hear you just as i am
afraid if we dance we might die
so f*** the world, live they say, why don't you know
when you live love, then you become what you are

but what you are
is the beast in the lover's arms
what you are
and is the devil in the sweet sweet kiss
what you are
is missing a piece
and what you are
is a puzzle to me

chorus:
What you've become just as i have
are you and i so unalike?
i don't hear you just as i am
Are we all afraid if we sing we might die
Mock the world, live say say
why, why dont trust me, when you give love
Only then you become what you are, yeah

why dont trust me
trust yourself
no trusting
trust yourself

What you are
a little bit, a little bit ummm
oh, what you are
*ad lib*
what you are
*ad lib*
what you are
This song is from the album "Everyday", "Live at Folsom Field - Boulder, Colorado" and "Central Park Concert".
