The Part Of Me I Let You See

KINGS CROSS LIGHTS A LONELY CUP 

LOOKING DOWN BUT THINKING UP 

THE HAND IS DEALT WITH SUITS AND CLUBS

AND SILENT FACES

 

FREEDOM CAME WITH BETTER NEWS

IN EVERY TOWN IT'S WHO KNOWS WHO

THERE AIN'T NO CHOICE

JUST FOLD OR LOSE

AND NEVER SAY THE THINGS LIKE

 

I'M KEEPING WELL 

BUT I'M HOPING YOU COULD HELP 

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE

QUIET IS MY HELL 

SO YOU MAY NEVER TELL

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE 

THIS IS JUST A PART OF ME 

 

BRICKS ON FLESH AGAINST THE WALL

NOTHINGS CHANGED SINCE STARTING SCHOOL

THE LITTER BREEDS THE STRAYS

THROUGH THE SKIES TO A STRANGE PLACE 

HOW HARD IT IS TO FIND A HOME AWAY

BUT EVERYBODY MUST TRY

 

SO I SAY I'M KEEPING WELL 

BUT I’M HOPING YOU COULD HELP 

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE

QUIET IS MY HELL 

SO YOU MAY NEVER TELL

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE 

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE 

THIS IS JUST A PART OF ME 

 

BUT I LOST MY CROWN AND REGAL ROBES

UNDER THE BRIDGE WHEN I WAS WOKEN 

BY THE MORPHETT ROAD MAGPIES

 

AND I SWORE THAT I'D NEVER FORGET

ALL THE WORDS UNDER HER BREATH

MOULDY MEMORIES DIM LIKE HEADLIGHTS

AS THE BLANKET CRAWLS OVER MY EYES

 

WHERE I CAN SAY I'M KEEPING WELL 

BUT I'M HOPING YOU COULD HELP 

THIS IS JUST A PART OF ME 

QUIET IS MY HELL 

SO YOU MAY NEVER TELL

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE 

 

I SAY I'M KEEPING WELL

BUT I'M HOPING YOU COULD HELP 

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE

HOLDING ON SO WELL

TRAPPED INSIDE A BITTER CELL

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE 

THIS IS JUST THE PART OF ME I LET YOU SEE 

THIS IS JUST A PART OF ME 

THIS IS JUST A PART OF ME
