All this time when you were away
So many days it was
Back and forth we would sway
Making it up was fun

Through the pale reflection we each
Hold the world above these dreams
Eager to leave
Well seeing's believing
It's always the way it goes

Chorus
When will we ever listen to reason
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
We will the truth be coming to season
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
I have a feeling it'll be a long time

Only want to be your fan
Only time is up
Making the same mistakes again
Tell me I'll be falling

Through the pale reflection we each
Hold the world above these dreams
Eager to leave
Well seeing's believing
It's always the way it goes

Chorus

Well if they'd try maybe they'd see
It would do a little good to let the world be free
Handshake and a smile gets it all approved
We could turn it all around with the suicide groove

But you know it's not movin' anyone but me
You make yourself see what you wanna see
But you know it's not movin' anyone but me
You gotta make yourself see what you wanna see
Yeah

I see you
Through the pale reflection we each
Hold the world above these dreams
Eager to leave
Well seeing's believing
It's always the way it goes

Chorus
