Inside

I think that I would rather be inside today
So come on in and see me, it’s better that way
No stranger to confusion, goodbyes are just okay
But don’t pretend you’ll stay

‘Cause I am in a blanket and I’m warm
And the sky is always dark before the storm

And I see you coming in
With tears upon your chin

I’m frightened of the nurse who keeps a smile for me
I’m frightened of moths that fly endlessly
I’d like to be a burglar with a skeleton key
And a life to live so easily

But I am in a blanket and I’m warm
And the night is always dark before the morn

And I see you coming in
With tears upon your chin and I say
You don’t have to worry anymore
Yes I see you coming in
With years upon your skin and I say
You look like the face that beauty wore

Take my hand and hold it
Linger for a while as yours enfolds it
If I overflow
Promise that you won’t forget as you go
Away…

‘Cause I am in a blanket and I’m warm
And the sky is always dark before the storm
Yes I am in a blanket and I’m warm
And the night is always dark before the morn

And I see you coming in and I say
Take my hand and hold it
