Track Name: Dumb [Original]
And when you walk into the room
I sway for a while
I catch my breath and then
I feel ok for a while
I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

And when I walk into the room
You stay for a while
But when I want to speak
You walk away for a while
I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

Why do we say these things?
When it's not what we mean
And why do I hear what I want?
When you're talking to me

And when we talk
The room is filled with grey for a while
When bitter shadows
Block the light day for a while
I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

Why do we say these things?
When it's not what we mean
And why do I hear what I want?
When you're talking to me
Track Name: This Message Has No Content
No-one's trying to kill you
Have a nice day
Stand behind the yellow line
Have a nice day
Have a nice...

And I walk
And I don't walk
And I push that button
And I wait

Can we skip to the part
Where we've fallen apart
Where there's been a collision
And it's caused a division
Which has got us nowhere
We've taken the blows where
You wouldn't expect
Present, not correct?

We don't know
Where we went wrong
And we don't know
How to fix it

Won't fall apart again
Won't fall apart again
Won't fall apart
I won't fall apart
Mmmhhh mmmhhh
The best is still to come
Track Name: A Part Of Me
It's 7.29 and it's raining outside
I've been inside so long
It's 7.32 and there's nothing to do
I’ve played my final song

There's some things I say
I don't mean to say
And some things that I don't mean
That keep me awake
Until the end of the day

Turning me around
Falling upside down
And I don't know

Apart from you is a part of me
A part of me is a part of you

And when I tell you
That you're never gonna be
A part of me?
And then I tell you
That you're never gonna be
Apart from me

I do understand that I'm making no sense
There's nothing that I can do
I don't recognise you me all of the time
I need you to hold me through
Track Name: Dumb [Once Around The Sun]
Sway for a while
Sway for a while

And when you walk into the room
I sway for a while
I catch my breath and then
I feel ok for a while

I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

And when I walk into the room
You stay for a while
But when I want to speak
You walk away for a while

I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

Why do we say these things?
When it's not what we mean
And why do I hear what I want?
When you're talking to me

And when we talk
The room is filled with grey for a while
When bitter shadows
Block the light day for a while
I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

Why do we say these things?
When it's not what we mean
And why do I hear what I want?
When you're talking to me
