lyrics

I've always been afraid
of the sound of my own voice.
It's always been easier
to fade into the noise.

Ever since I was a boy
the love I had for other boys
was beaten down without a word,
piece by piece destroyed.

Oh, how can I tell you
what it's done to me?
I've spent my whole life
just trying to get free.

I'll never take to the sky
perched on a wire.
I'll never set your heart alight
without walking through the fire.

And I've been spending most of my days
gettin' high
And I've been livin' all my life
on the sidelines.

Even though the shame has worn me down
down to the bone
I've still got a lot of love to give
and I know I'm not alone.

And my beating heart is a diving bell
that anchors in the sea floor
everry time I look into your eyes
and they're gently repeating
softly repeating
all is well
all is well
and all will be well

I buried my desire
just like I was told.
My mask was born of fire
and slowly, surely it took hold.

Oh, how can I tell you
what it's done to me?
I've spent my whole life
just trying to get free.
