Fade Away (aka I'm Fading)

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
