Asia – The Voice Of Reason lyrics

Nothing ventured nothing gained
Tired and washed out by the pain
Do we share this problem, will it slip away?
Or do we fight another day?
Was I looking for a friend?
One I could on 'til the end
Is there something that I didn't do?
Does it all begin with you?

So how did I, oh I
Give you reason?
But how did I, oh I
Give you reason?

After all the fallen tears
When we wake the token dream
Who let the water slowly draw away?
All the colours we made

To give you reason, to change the river's flow
To give you reason, to point the bone
To give you reason, to set your spirit free
I don't know, I don't know why

Is there nothing I can say?
Is there nothing I can do, girl?
Didn't mean to break your life
Didn't mean to burn your world, no

You can keep the silver band
You can have the memories, girl
Now as 'pilate' cleans the hands
It's no more to do with me, no

So how did I, oh I
Give you reason?
Let's the voice of reason say:
