Beauty's illusion, truth is blind One thing I knew was I'd be going somewhere I'd travel fast and then I'd run so far Beauty's illusion, truth is blind One thing I knew was I'd be going somewhere Not like I would make myself such a success I'd travel fast and then I'd run so far I wanted to leave almost every home I wanted to seek out another city A foreign thing was being comfortable In fact I do not know what it feels like So if you see me standing here, then please don't tell my friend I'm tryin to hide out from his words until the glorious weekend Oh if you see me standing here, then please don't tell my friend I'm trying to hide out from the world until the glorious weekend I never knew that you could be so kind You took me in like an abandoned something Brushed my hair sideways, put my hat back on Over the bump I had from tipping over Beauty's illusion, truth is blind One thing I knew was I'd be going somewhere Not like I would make myself a wild success I'd travel fast and then I'd run so far I wanted to leave almost every place I wanted to seek out another city One thing I hate is being comfortable Sitting still breeds stifling feelings If you see me standing here, then please don't tell my friend I'm tryin to hide out from his words until the glorious weekend And if you see me standing there, please don't tell my friend

Did you not get my letter? 'Cause your picture's still hanging on my wall I catch myself acting foolish At least I'm glad you're not aware There is no one to be lost with me All the leaves tumbling slowly to the ground But I'd like to change so much I know it could better We can't just sit around and talk about the weather The flowers in my room are now wilted and gone And every yesterday seems better than next month I'd like to change so much Did you not get my letter? 'Cause your picture's still hanging on my wall I catch myself acting foolish At least I'm glad you're not aware There is no one to be lost with you All the leaves tumbling slowly to the ground How many times have you flipped over the record on the turntable I'd like to change so much I know it could better We can't just sit around and talk about the weather The flowers in my room are now wilted and gone And every yesterday seems better than next month I'd like to change so much I know it could better Remembering the day you offered me your sweater The flowers in my room are now wilted and gone And every yesterday seems better than next month

Are you embarassed 'cause I caught you dancing in your room? There's no double standard here So you can do what you like, you know I just wish that we could keep the mystery alive But wishes are little more than fantasy I helped him out. I found it easy to get along Now it is just, just him and me A little rivalry, oh yeah The first time I met him, I was not wearing my usual garb And there was tension, but not the kind that I write about We do it for you 'cause we want you to remember why And tear apart the reactions and leave the romance behind Are you embarassed 'cause I caught you dancing in your room? There's no double standard here So you can do what you like I just wish that we could keep the mystery alive But wishes are little more than fantasy So I helped him out. I found it easy to get along Now it was just, just him and me A little rivalry, ooh yeah Where I was 16, I was trouble for everyone in sight And now I'm older, nothing's changed I've just grown up that's all We do it for you 'cause we want you to remember why And tear apart the reactions and leave the romance all behind We do it for you 'cause we want you to remember why And tear apart the reaction and leave the romance behind

You woke up today with the sun in your face Rose out of your bed and drank a coffee There are things you want, don't know how to get There are things you can look forward to yet. There are things. There are... You made promises that you can't forget Will they fill you up 'til you pay your debts? I've got a vision now Now it's feeling good Harder to say goodbye than to say 'hello' again Harder to say goodbye than to say 'hello' again All the tricks that you've tried And everytime that you've lied I promise you, I will forget All the tricks that you've tried And everytime that you've lied I xromise you, I will forget And say 'hello' again I'll say 'hello' again
