Chameleon Boy (Blue October)

I changed my color for you I shed my coat with caution I lack the beauty you display See here there are the bruises And some were self-inflicted And some showed up along the way So i nod my head I'm ready for the world to see The secret i kept here inside the man you thought id be Slip into coma calm The coma where i calm myself down Here comes excuses why i let you down Stand by for another breakdown Sound off the alarm Is this the chameleon boy i swore i wouldn't become Chameleon boy Chameleon boy So now we've come upon the hardest thing I've ever done Its telling you that I'm a mess What sort of mess i mean Is self-destructive gasoline The kind that strips you of your best And while i play instead the way that most would end up dead You sleep alone at home and wish that i was in our bed With this I'm telling you My color changes back to blue How do i ask you this Will you help me through Stand by for another breakdown Sound off the alarm Is this the chameleon boy i swore i wouldn't become Stand by for another breakdown Sound off the alarm Is this the chameleon boy i swore i wouldn't become Chameleon boy Chameleon boy I try to think of all the people i looked up to while growing up who would i be Now the twisted part Where'd all my idols end up They all passed away Passed away Stand by Its chameleon boy Stand by Its chameleon boy Chameleon Boy I'm chameleon boy... Chameleon boy...
