lyrics

Concluding remarks made by circles of friends
As with any circles, won’t lead to an end
I can’t share my mind if you won’t let me speak it

The pen will not reach the ever-distant paper
As the truth in my words is never inferred
I can’t share my life if you won’t let me live it

Their lives look like the perfect picture
Everything’s as it should appear
But I see her face, the hesitation shows the need for change
Their lives look like the perfect picture
A closer look shows him not with her
But it’s okay, maybe I can’t see how they do anyway
Who’s to say

I’m no actor, so know I’m not pretending
I shouldn't be this hard to believe in
I can’t share my mind if you won’t let me speak it

With such a well defined character
I shouldn’t be this hard to understand
I can’t share my life if you won’t let me live it

Their lives look like the perfect picture
Everything’s as it should appear
But I see her face, the hesitation shows the need for change
Their lives look like the perfect picture
A closer look shows him not with her
But it’s okay, maybe I can’t see how they do anyway
Who’s to say

People see first just what they expect to see
So it appears that nothing has changed
It feels like this will last forever
Trusting perception over my word

If time asleep felt to pass the same as waking
Would you finally have the chance to see the sense of this all
If time asleep felt to pass the same as waking
Would you finally have the chance to see the sense of this all
