Fading (Acoustic)

Fading (Acoustic)

Jewel

It's Walmart, the bathroom
I'm staring in the mirror
Florescent lights are bright
It makes the lines clearer
Where did the Angel go?
Cigarette smoke's all that's left
I've traded my wings in for a string of pearls
And a string is all I've left

The lighbulbs burn
Someone's in the stall
Big whites, brick wall
Makes me feel small
And I take my shirt off
Looking for a glimpse of flesh
Peel back the concrete
Hope there's something that true left

'Cause I am fading
I am fading
I am fading away
I am fading just like fairytales
And a hero loses faith
I am fading

The air smells like urine
It's gettin' hard to breathe
I could walk out that door
But no one ever really leaves
And I take my clothing off
Trying not to forget
Stupid things like the color of rain
And the smell of stone when it's wet

I am fading
I am fading
I am fading away
I am fading just like fairytales
And a hero loses faith

And I am naked in the mirror
With a feather in my hand
A lady comes out of the bathroom screaming
"Oh Jesus!"
She couldn't understand
But I ask her, "Hey, what happens to us when we get old and in the way?"
I guess she answered me
Cause they, they took me away

And I am fading
I am fading
I am fading away
I am fading just like fairytales
And a hero loses faith

And I don't know how
And I don't know when
Don't know when I forgot
Hope I'll remember again
I am fading away
I am fading
