An Accidental Man (Afraid of Sunlight Version)

You ask me how I'm feeling
I only wish you knew
How hard it is for me to share
Share that kind of thing with you

It's not that I don't love you
It's just I can't connect
'Cause I was taught from much too young
To shine and not reflect

And if you sense a smoke screen here
A trick of the dry ice
Just try to see there's more to me
Than sour grapes and sugar mice

Just try to understand
I don't say all I can
A stranger to myself, I am
An accidental man

You ask me if I'm happy
I only wish I knew
'Cause happiness is not a thing
I ever learned to do

It's not that I'm complaining
It's all the same to me
If everything that happens
Happens accidentally

Just try to understand
I don't say all I can
A stranger to myself, I am
An accidental man
A stranger to myself, I am
An accidental man

I was taught for every secret
There's a price you have to pay
Yes, I was taught for every secret
There's a price you have to pay
I was taught from much too young
To never give myself away

Just try to understand
I don't say all I can
A stranger to myself, I am
An accidental man
Just try to understand
I don't do all I can
A mystery to burned-out love
An accidental man
