Saw you sleeping on the couch tonight
Though it serves you right
Makes you luckier than I
All the colors in the room have changed
The painting yesterday
Brother I discover you

We're pushing on
We're passing through
It won't be long
'til I walk with you
Tonight I'm down
I'm inside out
Staring at the pictures in the album you forgot about

Isn't it a shame
Times have changed
But isn't it strange
Lifelines stay the same

We're never where we want to be
But that's ok with me
Its just the way it is we say
It feels like maybe
But you're me history
Brother I've rediscovered you

We're pushing on
We're passing through
It won't be long
'til I walk with you
Tonight I'm down
I'm inside out
Staring at the pictures in the album you forgot about

Isn't it a shame
Times have changed
But isn't it strange
Lifelines stay the same

Round and round
Can't believe my heart is waiting this long
All along we've been children
In a cold world where wonder was
Lost everyday
If love was a compass
Oh I've lost my way
