The Twistinside

This song is by Everclear and appears on the album Sparkle & Fade (1995).

Original video
We have been sleeping with the lights on
Just about every night
Because we were afraid what the dark might bring
I know, I know it's just a childish fear
That grows and grows wild in the middle of me

I'm gonna get a new tattoo
Black and stretching around my arm
Like a life that is visible and real
I know, I know it's stupid and immature
I just want to give shape to the face
That twists inside both you and me

Breathing fire doesn't look good on a resume
Neither does anything else we do
Got to get ready for the real world
Yeah yeah, we got to grow up

You know I like to die for a while
Everyday in the afternoon
I like to let the arms of a bar wrap around me tight
I'm just gonna sprawl in the front booth
Big drink above my head
Cross-eyed and smiling as I watch the world go twisting by

I don't want to die with you
Or live in the same dark room
I don't want to see your bloodshot eyes no more, no more
I just want to take this girl
All curls and big brown eyes
Man I can't shake the pain of wanting her, needing her

I know the secret of your soul
And I just don't want to know
Yeah, man we got to grow up

Yeah, we gotta grow up
Yeah, we gotta grow up
Yeah, we gotta grow up
Yeah, we gotta grow up

Na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na

Do you ever know?
Do you ever know?
Do you ever know?
Do you ever know?

I can't take it
I can't take it
