The Emporer’s New Clothes Lyrics

I wanted to run away
Up into the sky I watched from the window

I can feel that my real self
Is nowhere near here

I can measure my own helplessness
I couldn’t even break the school windows
They reflect my half-hearted self

I wonder how long it’s been
Since I put an end
To those wonderful, everflowing days
Pretending to be sad
I’m not joking around this time
I’m going to say goodbye to my weak self
I want to break it down
With a smile

I felt like a bird trapped in a cage
But the cage was never locked

I’ve always had so much to say
But I’ve always kept it down
My swollen stomach reflects my hideous self

I wonder how long it’s been
Since I put an end
To those wonderful, everflowing days
Pretending to be sad
I’m not joking around this time
I’m going to say goodbye to my weak self
I want to break it down
With a smile

My naked self is really feeling the cold
And the fault is all my own
What would I even do if I could go back?
I don’t know..

I wonder how long it’s been
Since I put an end
To those wonderful, everflowing days
Pretending to be sad
I’m not joking around this time
I’m going to say goodbye to my weak self
I want to break it down
With a smile
