      About "Myth"

      Lyrics for Keane - "Myth"

      You built it up brick by brick
      Put your heart into this baseless myth
      Nurtured it like a child
      And dressed its wounds when it ran wild

      You stopped to fix your face
      Someone else stepped in and took your place
      Now everything you once knew
      Is running circles around you

      A car door slamming in your road
      It jolts you like a kick inside
      A year old message on your phone
      That catches you when you can’t hide

      I see you in the service station sign
      I see you in the supermarket line
      I see you silhouetted on a wall
      But I don’t see myself there at all

      This vessel of Balsa wood
      Is the fag end tail of amoeba-hood
      The busying cast confer
      And get their taste of the drama

      You stare through mindless daytime shows
      And curse yourself for growing old
      The sterile scent of shaving foam
      Reminds you of another world

      I see you in the roofless sombre sky
      I see you when the lovers stop outside
      I see you silhouetted on a wall
      But I don’t see myself there at all

      I see you in the sweetness of our child
      I see you in the supermarket aisle
      I see you when I’m kneeling on the floor
      But I can’t see myself anymore

      Hard times got the upper hand
      Stole our feeble plans
      The faces, shot me, spin me round
      But I won’t lie down

      Hard times shake me to the bone
      Face bruised, bloody nose
      Shell shocked, crawling on the ground
      Still I won’t lie down

      No I won’t lie down
      No I won’t lie down
      I won’t lie down
