I’ve fallen victim to a thoughtless crime Where everything I know has disappeared before my eyes It’s always here a moment, then it’s gone This isn’t happening, the reflection that I see can’t be Be me But beyond the mirrored walls I see so easily And I know A window will open up for me If I can just let go I’m recognizing time is just a soulless thief Taking as it pleases I’m realizing I’m floating on a forest stream Carried to the ocean The river shoots me out onto the open sea But when I turn around, there’s nothing behind me I’m all alone out here. It can’t be, be me But beyond the mirrored walls I see so easily And I know A window will open up for me If I can just let go

Darling I adorn you tonight with light The moment now is all for you You’re shining all around the room Tonight, so bright. Your radiance is burning true. Did I say too much? Did I not say enough? Where did I fail you, my love? I heard somebody say one time That everything would be alright I could have sworn that it was you I guess I was wrong You had me all along What the hell was I to do Other than believe you? Did I say too much? Did I not say enough? Where did I fail you, my love? When I say too much, how can I say enough? Where did I fail you, my love? ...and I held you. It was all in my head, all in my head-- Everything that you said It’s all in my mind

You see me stare Off into the air And wonder what I hold true. Who would’ve known that I was thinking ‘bout you? Steppin’ over mines, Behind enemy lines. I could lose my life with one wrong move. Who would’ve known that I was thinking ‘bout you? Oh you should know (you should know) You’re keepin’ me alive Looked up one time, Your eyes met with mine. I should have said something to you. Who would have known that you were thinking that too? I’m across the sea, and I would rather be back home across the room from you. I can only hope that you were thinking that too. I’m so glad you weren’t just another missed connection. I would’ve never known the benefit of your affection. When I’m out there my only thought is “How can I survive?” Baby, you should know you’re keepin’ me alive.

I know a place where we should go To take our unplanned holiday, today! I’ve searched the whole Earth looking for What lies outside of my front door. I just wanna go down to a desolate town That is covered in snow, We’ve got nowhere to go. And I can’t hear a sound Cause nobody’s around Everyone is inside Wanna go for a ride? I sled all through my neighborhood, Still I can not believe my eyes. I look around and all I see Is happiness surrounding me. We don’t know where we’re going. We’re hanging out with the snowmen. Making snowballs and throwing them, We’ll be ok.

You know where I’ve been You know everything You know that I have reached a new height I have seen a new light glow It’s not burning out, I’m not coming down I am in the sky, you’re on the ground Every hour, every day I search my mind for words to say. My stars don’t align with yours. We’re wasting time. So what’s this for? You crawl inside me [I wonder why you always crawl inside me] And saw that I was hiding it all [You came and saw and found that I was hiding] You read about my past life (and) [You tell me that you always know where I’ve been] Everything that I’ve done wrong. [You tell me that you always know everything] Was it good for you like it was for me? Now you’ve seen the truth, let me be. The time is right now. Leave me here behind. And walk out When everything was fine, I came down.

Please quit all your whining Whining all the time And everybody’s fine And you’ll be ok You’ll be ok Ever since my father’s father, and before him People told their children Trust and obey Do what I say Trust and obey We always pay for nothing They always say, “nothing’s free.” Gimme any topic Step into my office Tell me all your problems They’ll go away I do it every day This could last forever Everyone together Worrying and wasting away You’ll be ok You’ll be ok We always pay for nothing They always say, “nothing’s free.” Open your eyes You’re not alone It’s no surprise You reap what you sow

Life began, still no one knows How life could end with the loss of a soul. It’s creeping in, the dark wind blows, And time again is meaningless. You’re still standing there Calling out into the sky But nothing’s there To hear your cry Seek the truth. Calculate. You’re questioning, but the answers must wait. The wheel will spin This runaround will never end The rebuilt walls will fall again Enlighten, or someone just lie to me ‘Cause you know that I’ll believe. I’m frightened. Someone turn the light on. ‘Cause you know I need to see.

It might be some time tomorrow or it might be a million years from now. It might be some great big disaster. or it might be ‘happy ever after’, after all. It might be the star that we are circling or it might be the coming of the Lord. It might be a nuclear reactor or it might be ‘happy ever after’, after all. I wanna be there. I wanna be there when it does. I wanna be there. It cut me to the bone, It shook me to my core, The fear of the unknown-- I don’t feel it anymore. Call it what you want, it’s only a matter of time ‘Til we must face the music, leave our our memories of the world behind... I wanna be there. I wanna be there when it does. I wanna be there.

I just want to sing to you A lover’s song as you lay. If you detect a major tone, It’s cause of what you do to me. You are not an angel now, But as close on Earth as you’ll ever see. I could stop a bullet now, But my poor heart would bleed and bleed. Oh and so you know, I want what you think of me to be real I’m falling more for you every day Doesn’t matter what they all say No one’s gonna stand in our way, even though they try Falling more for you every day

It’s so easy to see And you know that it is wrong You’re lying through your teeth And you’re stringing me along But it’s only hurting you In fact, I’m better off I try but can’t get through So I’ll sing it in a song Ooooo…. Cover up the truth Pull the wool over my eyes You’ve got to cut me loose Darlin’ I can read your mind But I can’t read your heart ‘Cause you’ve hidden it from me I’ve been blind from the start Make it easier to see

You’re weighed down, living in a town Where they got you. But it’s all you’ve ever known And everyone’s saying you should run And you ought to. But they could never let you go Anyway You cut your ties, told them all lies Just to let go Now you’ve got no place to be And who’s to say there will ever be a day When you do know What your eyes were meant to see Anyway Let's waste away The afternoon today. They're after you, you say. But they're never gonna find you now. Never gonna find you. Let's waste away The afternoon today. They're after you, you say. You're never gonna be found out. They're never gonna figure it out. Now...Oh oh oh... They're never gonna find us now. Never gonna find us now. You come, they go. You’re just another dreamer, And no one knows that you’re hiding Now you’ve found The reason why they tried to tie you down
