YOU LIVE IN A FANTASY WORLD

lyrics

Do you wish you could turn off the thoughts in your head
I'm living the movies and books I just read
I'm lost in the middle the plots been laid out
I wish for happy endings but I'm full of dobut
Darling don't think that all this will end
I need some time, ya I can't pretend
those feelings never felt, and those words never said
ask for a re write but I'd do it all again

when your ship is 2/3 under, do you jump off and swim
or gracefully go below
are you capable of shutting out the negative
and going with the flow?

If I could go back and erase every page
that had a memory of you or a mention of your name
there'd be nothing left but a small children's book
whittled down from a novel with pictures I took,
to illustrate the way that this all fell apart
and all that we wants to go back to the start
close the book and begin one more time
but I only re read the first line

when your ship is 2/3 under, do you jump off and swim
or gracefully go below
are you capable of shutting out the negative
and going with the flow?

So learn from these mistakes, be happy with the results
it's better to speak up than lay around and sulk
at least you tried, so it didn't work out as you planned
it all seems to work out in the end

so say what's on your mind
please don't let me fuck this one up again
