can't see (useless) by oingo boingo

we were both cast forth by the same pale hands
and we both moved freely in the shadow lands
and we both were sculpted by the same cold wind
and we both had armor that was made from tin
and i tried to find you but it's useless
and i tried to speak but it's useless
and i feel bad and didn't know why
and it didn't get better as time went by
and i tried to be there when you turned away
and i tried to find you but you turned away
and i tried to find you but it's useless
and i tried to speak but it's useless
and i tried to find you but it's useless

and you're so close but i can't see you
and you're right there but i can't see you
and i feel so dumb and i don't know what to do
and you're right there but i can't see you
and i realize that it's useless
and i feel i'm right but it's useless
and i see you there but it's useless
and you're everywhere but it's useless

and i tried to say but my tongue got tied
and i tried to say it but i'm numb inside
and i can't see you anymore
and my piece of mind has gone through the door
and i realize that it's useless
and i thought i was right but it's useless
and i see you there but it's useless
and you're everywhere but it's useless.

and i can't see now in front of my nose
and i know you're there and know you're close
and you've faded away and disappeared
and i try to focus but i can't see clear
and i don't know why i feel this way
and i can't control myself anyway
and i don't know why i feel this way
and i can't control myself anyway
and i feel so bad now it's useless
and i feel so bad now it's useless
and i feel so bad now it's useless
and i feel so bad now it's useless

and i can't see in front of my face.
