Everyone's looking, everyone hides
Everyone's telling, but everyone lies
We're changing the subject, we're turning away
Away from the heart of it all

You say you are happy
Do you think this is fun?
Well it's only a firefly to the light of the sun
You say this is living, you feel so alive
Well you know everything dies

Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it's near and it's far
It flows through the heart of us

Welcome to another day
It doesn't seem that different 'cause nothing has changed
I try to remember, try to remember
When we were just running in place
Resons for living, never come cheap
But even your best ones can put me to sleep
What I am saying or trying to say
Is that there must be a better way

Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it's near and it's far
It flows through the heart of us

It's already in you, it's already there
You may disagree, but I don't really care
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out
What's at the hear of us?
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out What's at the heart?
Tell me all you wildest dreams
I don't really care if you don't know what they mean
We're raiding the closets with skeleton keys
You know it's easier than you think

Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it's near and it's far
It flows through the heart of us
Your reasons for living are all very fine
But they're leaving me cold, they're not really mine
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out?
What's at the heart of us?

I don't know
I don't know
