It's So Serious (BBC version)
 
I've given everything
With nothing in return
I'm filled with images
That play on every word
No-one to tell me
There's a cloud before my eyes
Not only broken,
I don't know the reason why
 
It's so serious
 
Whatever's happening
I feel so insecure
Whenever I'm ..........
I act so self assured
My world of emptiness
A child without a toy
Forgiving anything
Restore me to my joy
 
It's so serious
 
This endless sea of tears
The feeling that I'll drown
I'd try to catch them
But they're sure to touch the ground
Nobody notices
The crowd's already fled
To leave a maze of colours
Tell me I'm not dead
 
It's so serious
