Lyrics:

Sometimes I try so hard to be
the coolest dude around
There are times when there is nothing I try less
A song might put a window into my heart
and let a wave crush in
Another one lights up the skies
and gives my face a grin

A person who I care about
might hurt my very soul
Yet talking to some other friend
I find that Iím not alone
I might be walking aimlessly
or race along a track
Yet in everything that I go through
my thoughts are all with you, because...

A sunbeam of security
relights this house of pain
But itís nothing to be sure about,
it all might be in vain
And yet the feeling stays inside,
the door seems looked behind
A gathering of confidence
and a blessing for the mind
The light seems to be falling off
a mirror on the wall
The house is built on solid ground,
it will not move at all
To turn the house towards the light
you need to use some force
The mirror just might break apart
before you see the source

I think Ďbout all the things I do,
not knowing where Iím bound
I can make plans without an end
yet none might fit this life
No matter what I do or donít,
mine will not be the choice
It all depends on what you say,
your eyes, your smile, your voice

The hardest part in all of this
is the lack of certainty
I donít know if, I donít know when
it all turns out to be
Can anybody blame my soul
for being torn and battered
After all in everything that I go through
my thoughts are all with you, because...

A sunbeam of security
relights this house of pain
But itís nothing to be sure about,
it all might be in vain
And yet the feeling stays inside,
the door seems looked behind
A gathering of confidence
and a blessing for the mind
The light seems to be falling off
a mirror on the wall
The house is built on solid ground,
it will not move at all
To turn the house towards the light
you need to use some force
The mirror just might break apart
before you see the source
