in vain lyrics – bernard butler

i’m tired, i can’t explain,
all the troubled notions scrambling my brain.
i’m tired, let me be for now.
there was a time when i was interested by you,
but it isn’t now.
if only i could escape
leave a dummy in my place,
slip away through the walls,
not listen at all.
i’m tired, i can’t explain.
i may as well have been talking to myself
by the look on your face.
i’m high, i don’t feel myself.
i think i should feel happy
but i only want to lie down.
if only i could escape
leave a dummy in my place,
slip away through the walls,
not listen at all.
i’m tired, i might go away,
i’m tired, i’ve no more to say,
i’m tired, i’m tired.
so take me, take me away.
