Black Glass

Lyricist: Angela Aki    Composer: Angela Aki, Ben Fold
I wear black glasses
Just a frame of me you see
Fancy window dressing In the mirror glass
I reflect a bigger me

I use them as a curtain
With two holes to see the world
When I am not too certain If the real me inside is
The one who needs to hide

In my glasses I’m the Wizard of Oz
You can hear my voice I hear your applause
Would you see a clown if the curtain came down
It would all turn around
If I take them off
Would you call it off
If I take them off
Take them off for you

Take them off for you

When I wear black glasses
Am I hiding me from you
Where’s my Lion’s Courage
And the Tin Man’s heart to feel
I’ll be enough for you

In my glasses I’m the Wizard of Oz
You can hear my voice I hear your applause
Would you see a clown if the curtain came down
Would you stick around and see me through?
See me as you?
If I take them off
Take them off for you
Huh~~~~~~Huh~~~~~~
So I wear black glasses
Am I hiding me from you

In my glasses I’m the Wizard of Oz
You can hear my voice I hear your applause
Would you see a clown if The curtain came down
Would you stick around if I take them off
Is the whole thing off ? Yeah~

In my glasses I’m the Wizard of Oz ~Woo
You can hear my voice I hear your applause
Would you see a clown if The curtain came down
Would you stick around and see me through
See me as you?
If I take them off
Take them off
Take them off
For you
