Evaporated

Original Artist: Ben Folds

What I've kept with me and what I've thrown away,
And where the hell I've ended up on this glary, random day,
Were the things I really cared about just left along the way,
For being too pent up and proud.

Woke up way too late feeling hungover and old,
And the sun was shining bright and I walked barefoot down the road,
Started thinking 'bout my old man,
It seems that all men want to get into a car and go anywhere.

Here I stand,
Sad and free,
I can't cry,
I can't see,
What I've done,
Oh God what have I done?

Don't you know I'm numb man?
No I can't feel a thing at all,
'Cause it's all smiles and business these days and I'm indifferent to the loss,
And I think that there's a soul somewhere that's leading me around,
I wonder if she knows which way is down.

Here I stand,
Sad and free,
I can't cry,
and I can't see,
What I've done,
Oh God what have I done?

I poured my heart out,
I poured my heart out,
It evaporated,
See?

Blind man on a canyon's edge of a panoramic scene,
Maybe I'm a kite that's flying high and random dangling on a string,
Or slumped over in a vacant room,
Head on a stranger's knee,
I'm sure back home they think I've lost my mind.

Here I stand,
Sad and free,
I can't cry,
I can't see,
What I've done,
Oh God what have I done?
