American Aquarium — Antique Hearts lyrics

I need to try something new, something revolutionary that is going to pull me through. Because i'm a used record store full of memories that no one wants to hear anymore. I wonder why i run so fast because no matter where i start i always finish last and why would i ever stop to pray to a god that's always only six feet away.

With the summer i confide the thoughts of what it means to be alive
Like a Polaroid developing with the light
What do you know about me, other than what you can see?
Behind this broken smile lies an antique heart
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/american-aquarium-antique-hearts-lyrics.html ]
Why do i try so much, i'm like a doctor who has lost his touch?
And why do i call this my best, like the kid in class who cheats on all the tests.

With the summer i confide the thoughts of what it means to be alive
Like a Polaroid developing with the light
What do you know about me, other than what you can see?
Behind this broken smile lies an antique heart

I wonder if I'll ever know how to play this thing or how this song should go. I wonder what i'm trying for; i have got to find myself behind this wall of metaphors

With the summer i confide the thoughts of what it means to be alive
Like a Polaroid developing with the light
What do you know about me, other than what you can see?
Behind this broken smile lies an antique heart
