All throughout the seasons
With no one to call my own
I almost got accustomed to
A life lived all alone
But I knew something was missing
Made clearer by my dreams
I was just so full of love
It was almost sickening

It was the end of the Summer
And I couldn't think at all
I was looking down from a lonely cliff
Just waiting for the Fall
You made things so clear to me
You wanted to be alone
Still, the next week I'd ask again
But in a different tone

Autumn was well underway
I finally had it all
The girl of my dreams was in my arms
In the middle of a concert hall
Even when my thoughts deceived
The clearest realities
You were so quick to tell me that
Your love was what it seemed

Baby, don't worry 'bout privacy
The condensation from our body heat
Will make us only silhouettes to anyone outside
Baby, don't worry 'bout empathy
The lines all blur when you're in front of me
The headlights make us silhouettes and I can't see you cry

whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Winter came around the bend
And things started to change
I chronicled your every word
But you still couldn't explain
Now you've gone out of my life
And I couldn't be more pleased
When I watch my dog chew up the things
That you kindly gave to me

Baby, don't worry 'bout you and me
We will be alright, just wait and see
Though we're only silhouettes in the recess of my mind
Now I don't worry 'bout anything
Everything works out eventually
But I'm just a silhouette
Baby, we're all silhouettes
Yeah, I'm just a silhouette
But I know I'll be fine
