I can't feel, feel a thing
I can't shout, I can't scream
Breathe it out, breathe it in
All this love from within

(And) I won't cry when you say goodbye
I'm out of tears
(And) I won't die when you wave goodbye
I'm out of tears (yes I am)

I won't drink, I won't eat
I can't hear, I won't speak
Let it out, let it in
All this pain from within

And I just can't pour my heart out
To another living thing
I'm a whisper, I'm a shadow
And I'm standing up to sing

And I won't cry, I swear my eyes are dry
I'm out of tears (yeah)
And I won't cry, I'm going to tell you why
I'm out of tears

Let it out from within
Some you lose, some you win
I can drift, I can dream
Til I float off your screen
