I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am
And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you bleed just to know you’re alive.
Iris – The Goo Goo Dolls
This song has few verses, but the impact of the chorus makes up for it. The feeling of frustration and longing, for something that’s missing in life is so clear. I also get there’s a sense of feeling lost, not to mention scared as well. Ah, there’s poetry in the simplest of lyrics.
