It really does amaze me
How much I was afraid
It's so hard not to see it
As a big mistake I've made
And it cuts me down

I thought this grass was greener
But given time I've found
No matter what the color
It may as well be brown
'Cause it cuts me down

At night you seem to slip into the seldom dreams I have
And everything is whole
My mind is trying to complete the gaps within reality
To satisfy my soul
And it cuts me down

I'd take you back in a second
Given what I know now
