lyrics

I am the strong and silent type
I sing my songs under spot light
I'll speak only when the time is right
I'll be your rock and I'm in the stocks
I'll see out the night

I am what you think I should be
I bear responsibility
I'm what I think you need of me
I am bold, I am fierce but still I feel so weak

I am in the firing line
It looks as long as it is wide
And sometimes there's no end in sight
I look cold, but I am boiling
I'm running out of time

I am just what I invent
To keep me in the present tense
And make me still feel relevant
What I can conjure, what I can muster
Reprieve from the torment

When we were young
We would turn our backs on anyone who
Told us one day this would all be gone
If I could count the times
I wished I could realise that
We walk the same with different names

What's the point in opening up?
There's more important things to think of
What happened to those ones we loved?
Gary Cooper, strong and super
A bottle closed up

I see through your wall of ice
I know it well, try as you might
I can see you lose this fight
I could help you, I can see through
I see it in your eyes

When we were young
We would turn our backs on anyone who
Told us one day this would all be gone
If I could count the times
I wished I could realise that
We walk the same with different names

And we'll always say that it's all right
Sure as day brings out the night
So here it is in black and white
Here's your strong and silent type
