The Corner of the Room

The coward in the corner of the room
Tapping on the glass he drank too soon
Searches for compassion, and waits for it to happen
The coward in the corner of the room

The radio is driving me insane
But I can’t get enough of it these days
I guess that’s how you see me, in moments you’re not dreaming
The radio is driving me insane

The secrets that I say stay in this room
The secrets that I don’t stay in my tomb
The castle’s safely guarded, but I’ll hold up my bargain
The secrets that I say stay in this room

She seemed just like a late October night
When the trees begin to shed away their life
And she stood there frail and naked, secular and sacred
She seemed just like a late October night

Some memories you accidentally find
Hidden in the corridors of time
And they’re happy just to see you, although they may not need you
Some memories you accidentally find

When I die, could you turn me into ash,
And let the winds of autumn turn and take me back?
The castle’s safely guarded, but I’ll hold up my bargain
When I die, could you turn me into ash?

I’m happy with whatever path you take
Don’t let your thoughts of me guide your way
I know you think that I don’t mean that, but I really believe that
I’m happy with whatever path you take
