Is everything is not as it's sold
But the more I grow the less I know
And I have lived so many lives
Though I'm not old
And the more I see, the less I grow
The fewer the seeds the more I sow

Refrain
Then I see you standing there
Wanting more from me
And all I can do is try

Then I see you standing there
Wanting more from me
And all I can do is...
Try
Try

I wish I hadn't seen all of the realness
And all the real people
Are really not real at all
The more I learn, the more I learn
The more I cry, the more I cry
As I say goodbye to the way of life
I thought I had designed for me

Refrain
Then I see you standing there
Wanting more from me
And all I can do is try

Then I see you standing there
I'm all I'll ever be
But all I can do is...
Try
Ohoh try, try, try

All of the moments that already passed
We'll try to go back and make them last
All of the things we want each other to be
We never will be
We never will be

And that's wonderful
And that's life
And that's you, baby
This is me, baby

And we are, we are
We are, we are, we are, we are
Free
In our love
We are...
Free in our love
