lyrics

You manifest no interest, in the things I try to tell you,
But still there’s something bitter in this will that compels you,
Can’t see the forest for the trees, in the lack of your perspective,
To each their own, we’re all alone, in these winds of misdirection,
Just blowin’ away, tryin’ to stay, on the ground,
‘Cause it’s so hard to fly when you’re falling down.

You think that you’re the only one, who’s ever felt this way,
You’re not the only one, who’s seen this shade of grey,
So advertise your virtue like no one’s ever hurt you,
Self assured, that you can’t be cured, of everything you’ve been through,
You’re just tryin’ to find, some peace of mind, tonight,
You’ll learn so much more from not doing it right.

Time, is all the luck you need,
I’ll show you how to breathe,
I think our lives, are getting in the way,
What happened to the world that we were going to save?,
I’m not educated, but I’m well learned,
I’ve danced with the devil, and I’ve surely burned,
All my bridges and my pictures,
So I, don’t have to remember…

You complicate, then reciprocate, everything you do,
If nothing’s ever over, I guess nothing’s really new,
But if nothing is forever, I guess most things just don’t change,
You’re still a girl, in a troubled world, where no one knows your name,
You’re just tryin’ to stay, from blowin’ away, in the wind,
Change means not being what you’ve been,
Change means not being what you’ve been,
Change means not being what you’ve been,

Change means not being what you’ve been.
