Looking back I clearly see
What it is that's killing me
Through the eyes of one I know
I see a vision once let go
I had it all

Constantly it burdens me
Hard to trust and can't believe
Lost the faith and lost the love
When the day is done

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
On and on we stand alone
Until our day has come
When they open their eyes
And realize we are one

I love the way, I feel today
But how I know the Sun will fade?
Darker days seem to be
What will always live in me
But still I run

It's hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go
Will I ever save this day?
Will it ever change?

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
On and on we stand alone
Until our day has come
Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Still today we carry on
I know our day will come
When they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Oh, oh...
Yeah!

(Solo)

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one

It's hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Lost the faith and lost the love
When the day is done

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
Yeah

    He did something or had something that made him great or successful or happy, but then something happened and he lost it all. He's blaming it on people because they don't understand. That's the clearest way i can put it.
