It's a Shame

lyrics

Did you ever imagine we'd be living this way? Can't find no satisfaction, used up for a pocket full of change. What is everyone after anyway, always looking for answers in pretty things?

We were always the dreamers, happy just to follow the breeze, but we get sidetracked chasing convenience when it's easier to read. So what is everyone after anyway, always looking for answers in pretty things?

Well I've been thinking it's a state of mind, that we've been falling on these hard times. Don't have to tell me, it's a shame I'm wasting away.

All my emotions are a shadow of the times before. Honey was sweeter when we'd eat it from the tree and it's a long way back for more. But don't you give up on me that easy, I've been looking for you to say that I want to see the world! I want to take a chance. I want to feel it all and hold it in my hands. I want to see you smile, I want to make you laugh! It's been a little while, do you remember what we had?

And did you ever imagine we'd be living this way?

Well I've been thinking it's a state of mind, that we've been falling on these hard times. Don't have to tell me, it's a shame I'm wasting away. And I've been thinking it's a way of life, always falling on these hard times. Don't have to tell me, it's a shame I'm wasting away.

So won't you say it with me, and if you feel it with me, then maybe we could stop these hearts from breaking.
