When I was born, I cried like a widow
Remembering a time when her husband was around
Tears like candle wax
I didn't make a sound
When I was 8, I sat under a window and
Talked to the stars, usin my Teddy as a pillow
They said kid
You're never gonna be enough

You're only half of the battle
You've only got one eye
You're a gun without a barrel
You're a Gemini boy, you're a Gemini

I can't tell the forest from the trees
You can put me in a river, but I'll never find the sea
I get lost in the details
Call it a disease
When I'm alone I can lasso up the moon
Bring it down to earth and trap it in my bedroom
But I can't show it to a soul

I'm only half of the battle
I've only got one eye
I'm a gun without a barrel
I'm a Gemini lord, I'm a Gemini

In my dreams I see him here
Standin so close that I reach to touch him
But he's like a phantom
He slips right through my fingers evry time
So I'm left alone
A broken flashlight, trapped in outer space
If only I could find him
If only I could find him

I am pulled, in a million diffrent ways
My head is overloaded, I'm runnin out of space
I'm losin my mind
And always almost out of time
I can't get from one place to the next without
Trippin over my feet and almost breakin my neck
I need somebody by my side

I'm only half of the battle
I've only got one eye
I'm a gun without a barrel
I'm a Gemini lord, I'm a Gemini
