I was stained with a role in a day not my own,
As you walked into my life, you showed what needed to be shown,
And I always knew what was right I just didn't know that I might peel away,
And choose to see with such a different sight...

And I will never see the sky the same way,
And I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday,
And I will never cease to fly, if held down,
And I will always reach too high,
Cause I have seen,
Cause I have seen... Twilight

Never cared, never wanted, never sought to see what flaunted, so on purpose, so in my face,
Couldn't see beyond my own place,
And it was so easy, now, to behold
What I could hold, what you showed me,
I could change whatever came, within these shallow days

And I will never see the sky the same way,
And I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday,
And I will never cease to fly, if held down,
And I will always reach too high,
Cause I have seen,
Cause I have seen...

As the sun shines through, it pushes away and pushes ahead,
Fills the warmth of blue, and leaves a chill instead,
And I didn't know that I could be so blind to all that is so real,
As illusion dies, I see there is so much to be revealed,

And I will never see the sky the same way,
And I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday,
And I will never cease to fly, if held down,
And I will always reach too high,
Cause I have seen,
Cause I have seen... Twilight

I was stained with a role in a day not my own,
As you walked into my life, you showed what needed to be shown,
And I always knew what was right I just didn't know that I might peel away,
And choose to see with such a different sight...

And I will never see the sky the same way,
And I will learn to say good-bye to yesterday,
And I will never cease to fly, if held down,
And I will always reach too high,
Cause I have seen,
Cause I have seen... Twilight

    I love this song, always have. And it does fit into the Twilight soundtrack, but I think the reason they didn't put it on is because the song type doesn't really fit into it. It woul have been a great song to put in when she blacks out in the ballet studio, but then they would have to take out Spunk's crazy great song! Ome, that would suck. Well, yeah, that's what I think.
