Tell me I've been dreaming
Or did I hear you right
Now you say you want me back again
You play with my emotions
A game I know so well
From now on, I'm changing the rules
We're living in the real world
Forget about your land of fantasy
Can't you see, it isn't worth the pain
You know I'm not the same girl
The one who used to hang around with you
Change your mind
And it could set you free
Try living in the same world
You've taken me for granted
And hurt me with your lies
Don't you know
I'm nobody's fool
Emotions have their uses
And broken hearts can mend
Used to cry, but not anymore
We're living in the real world
Forget about your land of fantasy
Can't you see, it isn't worth the pain
You know I'm not the same girl
The one who used to hang around with you
Change your mind
And it could set you free
Try living in the same world
We're living in the real world
Forget about your land of fantasy
Can't you see, it isn't worth the pain
You know I'm not the same girl
The one who used to hang around with you
Change your mind
And it could set you free
Try living in the same world
Music: L. Krell
Words: M. Reilly, G. Hodgson, St. MacKillop
