Dorian’s Theme

I pour out my heart on the canvas

I wring out my soul on the page

In oils and inks I could outshine the Sphinx

but it doesn’t mean a damn thing

I work my fingers down to the bone

yet still at the end I’ll be sad and alone

I could transmutate gold

it would never be sold

because nobody cares

nobody cares

I’m a little bit jaded ‘cause what I created

I think would be worth your time

but you’ll never see it, ‘cause would you believe it

I haven’t got a dime

I’m just one man in a sea of faces

I’m just one star in the galaxy

And it’s hard for me to face this

I’m just one note in your symphony

I’m one word in a poem of verses

why would you read me?

why would you read me?

why would you read me?

each stroke of my brush is inspired

each palette I choose is sublime

but I’ll never make any silver

it seems that success is a crime

my great works of art

are breaking my heart

because nobody cares

nobody cares

It’s clear to me I’m worthless

If so what is the point?

I’ll sacrifice no longer, my friend,

I’ve painted my last.

I’m done, that’s the end!

I’m a little bit jaded ‘cause what I created

I think would be worth your time

but you’ll never see it, ‘cause would you believe it

I haven’t got a dime

I’m just one hue in a sea of color

I’m just one thread in the tapestry

And it’s hard for me to face this

I’m one picture in your gallery

I’m one man in a sea of faces

why would you see me?

why would you see me?

why would you see me?
