Start over
I can't make sense of this
You mumble your words
When you don't want hurt feelings
Calm down caged bird
Get to the heart of it
Life's not what you thought it'd be
Tell me when it ever really is

Oh Why are we strangers on the same side
Where best friends and lovers collide
I'm never sayin' never again

What we have in common
Is we don't like gray skies around
They only ever bring us down
The deeper the doubt the harder it rains
What we have in common
Is we don't want our colors to fade
It's lights out for us all some day
But stay on the bright side of things OK

We shared the same set
Of eyes for so long
I can't even see myself
Without you looking back through me
You're the best thing
That's ever happened to me
However, the brighter the feather
The harder it is to set it free

Oh Why are we strangers on the same side
Where best friends and lovers divide
I'm never sayin' never again

What we have in common
Is we don't like gray clouds around
They only ever bring us down
The deeper the doubt the harder it rains
What we have in common
Is we don't want our colors to fade
It's lights out for us all some day
But stay on the bright side of things OK
OK
Oh Why are we strangers on the same side
Where best friends and lovers collide
I'm never sayin' never again
What we have in common
Is we don't like gray clouds around
They only ever bring us down
The deeper the doubt the harder it rains
What we have in common
Is we don't want our colors to fade
It's lights out for us all some day
But stay on the bright side of things OK
But stay on the bright side of things my love
But stay on the bright side of things OK OK
