lyrics

here i am again
painting pictures in the sand
underneath the stars
wondering if they're too far and i
take a rocket ship
to the moon away from it and i
make the most of this
i am slow i must admit

i don't know why
i don't know why i do it again
every now and then i feel my heart will
take a turn makes me wonder why

the light in my eyes
blinding me from all it's lies
up before a crowd
of silhouettes they seem to proud
the stage is taking me
across the plains out to the sea but
have i missed my time
to know whats yours or truly mine

i don't know why
i don't know why i do it again
every now and then feel my heart will
take a turn makes me wonder why

where did the pain go
when you said I'm leaving
i am grateful
all my life i been living in a
hotel room a battered bus
a foreign flight knees full of rust
it's how i get by

where did the pain go
when you said I'm leaving
i am grateful
all my life i been living in a
hotel room a battered bus
a foreign flight knees full of rust
it's how i get by
