Incognito – Did We Really Ever Try lyrics

(J. P. Maunick / M. Edwards)

Did we really ever try to understand each other?
Or was it just a game that sometimes people play?
Did we really ever see eye to eye, I wonder?
Was it just a game that sometimes people play?
[Sometimes people play]

I wonder if
We ever listened
To a word
That the other had to say

All that we shared
Our inner treasures
Are used against each other as we fall


I wonder if
Before we started
We could have known
That the road would end this way

What makes us give
Our hearts so freely
Only to find that we're strangers after all


Night and day, night and day, day and night
Night and day, people play, day and night

We fool ourselves
Into believing
Our difference will surely change in time

So we proceed
Blissfully blinded
Throwing caution to the wind along the way
