lyrics

You always seemed to me to be so sure of all of your success
And though you were not the only one there is one thing I will confess
I never did believe you, even when you were right
Your head was in the crowd and the ground, was out of sight

So I grabbed you by the cheekbones looking for the child that I once knew
Saying sometimes your eyes look like they don’t belong to you
So tell me who you really are, tell me what is your position here
There are some things I’d like to know before you go, and you disappear

And now my love, I watch you turn away
I’m sure knew you once, maybe I will again some day
Don’t you know there’s so much more that lies beyond the things you cast your eyes upon
I think that we can both agree, nothing’s left here for you and me

Are you ever alone, I wonder you could be
Misapprehension, I’m sure she keeps you company
You are forever moulding yourself new faces to wear
Oh and once again I see you’ve changed the colour of your hair

Like some cold man whose old hands still hold on to his own brand of truth
You’re bored, ignored and you’re soon to be abandoned by youth
But maybe I too one day I will be one of those
Who, alone with his regrets, staggers down that path that he chose

‘Cause now my love, I watch you turn away
I said I’m sure knew you once, and maybe I will again some day
Don’t you know there’s so much more that lies beyond these things you cast your eyes upon
It’s plain to see Marie, nothing’s left here … for you and me
