Fade Away (aka I'm Fading) by Jewel Kilcher It's K-Mart, the bathroom I'm staring in the mirror The green lights are bright It makes the lines clearer Where did the Angels go? Cigarette smoke's all that's left I traded my wings in for a string of pearls And now the string is all I've left The light bulbs burn Some ones in the stall Big white Brick wall Makes me feel small And I take my shirt off Looking for a glimpse of flesh I peel back the concrete Hope there's still some soil left Cuz I am fading I am fading I am fading away I am fading Just like fairy tales When the hero loses faith I am fading The air smells like urine It's getting hard to breathe I could walk out that door But no one really ever leaves I take all my clothing off Trying not to forget Stupid things like The color of rain And the smell of stone when it's wet And I am naked in the mirror With a feather in my hand The lady comes out of the bathroom Screaming, "Oh, Jesus!" Like I was a man And I ask her "Hey, what happens to us When we get old and in the way?" I guess she answered me Cause they took me away And I am fading I am fading I am fading away I am fading Just like fairy tales When the hero loses faith And I can't remember Why or when, I hope that I'll remember again Cause I am fading I'm fading
