Then So It Is

where am I going
trying to regain control
but no matter
how I dress it up
I always end up alone

so why must I come here every time
I back myself against a wall
and why is it still so surprising to me
when I try to conquer
I fall

but I want to feel like a bird
singing in an open cage
and I wan to be in a love
where we are free to wonder
I wan to lay down with my eyes shut
and let the mystic take my sadness
and if this is what you call madness
then so it is

I drive
myself crazy
yeah crazy in a constant spin
that one day soon yeah know iím going to get my life
iím going get my life
back together again

but can you see me now
can you see me now
can you see me standing here
iím waving a white flag to win

cause I wan to feel like a bird
singing in an open cage
and I wan to be in a love
where we are free to wonder
I want to lay down with my eyes shut
and let the mystic take my sadness
and if this is what you call madness
then so it is
