lyrics

You have changed, you have changed
I stood here watching
They say you've grown, grown so tall
You look right down on me now

Where did you go get holy?
That just makes people lonely
Lonely's not what we need

I am losing my grip on you
You are losing your grip on me
Tried so hard, now we're black and blue
I'm afraid now that you can't see
The curtain's between you and me

Clap your hands, smile so brave
Say you're praying for me
Do you know how that feels?
Are you not unwell too?
Will I see the doctor before you?

I search and I search your face
Smiling just hurts when it's not the real thing
Do you even know my name
It will never be the same

I am losing my grip on you
You are losing your grip on me
Tried so hard, now we're black and blue
I'm afraid now that you can't see
The curtain's between you and me
