Out Of Reach

lyrics by Amber Melin

I watch you from across the world
I know you’re there but I can’t believe
I picture you as a character
So happy it’s unreal

Perfection grips your jaw
And tension keeps you in line
Time has only grazed your sides
Life talks to you like a child

How perfect can anything be

Held down from the insides
You’ve left so much
Your senses weigh you down
Like blocks of thick lead

You’re feeling under pressure
At the mercy of the judge
The crowd lashes its claws
Its thickness censors your thoughts

So happy in your picture
And stillness holds you in place
The frozen smile that provokes him
Hides your vulnerable face
