Jar MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

I'd live in a jar if I could
beneath the lid
behind theglass
safe from the world
safe at last

Just take me away
take meaway
from the wolfman at the door
and the pain that has to stay

Butsometimes I don't think it'd work
it would probably get too cramped
andafter all I would probably miss
touching the world
experiencingbliss

Just take me away
take me away
from the wolfman at thedoor
and the pain that has to stay

The world is suffocating me
sowould you punch some holes in my cap
or wrap me in your arms
keep me fromthe deepening night
and all this ghostly harm

I took one glance at yourintricate web
of love and caring
and all that stuff I have wanted
butyou keep running away
and it is your memory keeping me haunted

Justtake me away
take me away
from the wolfman at the door
and the pain thathas to stay

Man, I know how you feel. You want to be protected but realize you'd be restless and miss the world. - "I would probably miss
