A World Away

 

So much time and so little has changed

I try to hard to be amazed

These pawns, these places and these scenes

But all in all, itís just another in-between

No matter how I try to make it right

Thereís just not enough salvation out here tonight

 

So come on, stand like a wilted flower

With your hands in your back pockets

With blood stained eyes

But right now is our defining hour

I swear these hearts never lied

 

Iíve plundered rainbows and voices that besiege

I swear that you always dangle out of reach

But Iím never gonna fall for that again

You open up the door and let me in

We fall but we falter and fade away

Weíre just a few blocks but a world away

 

Guess we both, we should have known better

After all this time, to think that we could fly

We try so hard to put it all together

We both know itís time to say goodbye

 

Call me from your castle

But I wonít be around

You can offer me your jewels

Offer me the crown

But this time itís for real

Itís gotta be this way

You can keep my books and hats

I donít want Ďem anyway

Temptationís forbidden

It's a price that I canít pay

Weíre just a few blocks but a world away

 

But Iím never gonna fall for that again

You open up the door and let me in

We stumble on sentences that we should say

Weíre just a few blocks but a world away

 

A world away

A world away
