i'm still just an old hypocrite
reneging on my past advice
of cut the strings and pull the chord
whatever happens, time will heal
i had a dream again last night
it's haunted me into today
i can't get you out of my head
what do i want...
still i remember the old times
you made me flush such scarlet red
and how my heart would race and stride, thought it would pierce right through my chest
i knew that we were in the wrong
fundamentally, nothing's changed
except the ring's now on my hand
it won't come off...
there are things i'd like to say
if i could open up my mouth
and proffer up the perfect phrase
to regain the wonder and praise
that once was contained within
there once was love inside your eyes
the mirror broke and i'm afraid
it all was just lies...
