Lyrics
Verse One
I'm standing at a mirror
I don't know who I'm looking at
this part I play that I didn't write
have I gone too far to come back

I wish you could see the real me
more than just this song and dance
but that's all you saw to begin with
so that's what I gave you at last

Chorus
I'm empty as a desert well
but I built the walls of this mirrored cell
it was a spiraled game of show and tell
and you beat me every time
(every time)

Verse Two
I feel as easy to see through
as a candidate for political office in DC
yet my loneliness is carefully hidden
though I'm dying to let it be seen yeah-e-yeah

Chorus
I'm empty as a desert well
but I built the walls of this mirrored cell
it was a spiraled game of show and tell
and you beat me every time

I'm empty as a desert well
but I built the walls of this mirrored cell
it was a spiraled game of show and tell
and you beat me every time
and you beat me oohhh every time

Bridge
tear me down
see me naked
this tired facade
is wearin thin yeah
it's wearin thin
yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah
wwhhoo-hhhooo hhhoooo-yyeeaahh
wwhhoo-hhhooo hhhoooo-yyeeaahhh
wwhhoo-hhhhhhhhoooooooo

Chorus
I'm empty as a desert well
but I built the walls of this mirrored cell
it was a spiraled game of show and tell
and you beat me every time
I'm empty (as a desert well)
I'm empty (as a desert well)
I'm empttyyy (as a desert well)
I'm empty (as a desert well)
