lyrics

Oh I took a walk
As the sun went down
Heard the city talk
Of a darker side of town
Came across a street
In a gloomy dusk
In the waves of dancing heat
A mirage formed of us

I've
Lost too much
I, I've
Lost too much
I, I, I've
Lost too much
Can’t you see

You need to get away
A house down by the sea
And life a simple life
Of modest luxury
And I will meet you there
Oh this time next year
If I'm still alive
If I'm still sincere

I
Lie too much
I I
Lie too much
I I I
Lie too much

Can’t you see

Burn the midnight oil
So that I can stay
Upon this mortal coil
Once my body has decayed
And you will find my voice
And you will find my words
Like the wing finds the wind
Like the shepherd finds the herd

I
Dream too much
I I
Dream too much
I I I
Dream too much

Can’t you see
Can’t you see
Can’t you see
