lyrics

Eye of the sculptor, don’t you complain
You’ve molded your own terrain
And you wanna stay inside your life of dismay
But I can only meet you halfway

You said, you said happiness, oh
Still waiting for it to come around
Daydreaming life as you want it
Until it all falls to the ground

And those clean little pictures on your mantle piece
They show what you think will make your life complete
But they’ll only dance for you behind closed doors
And that can't be what you’re looking for

You said, you said happiness, oh
Still waiting for it to come around
Daydreaming life as you want it
Until it all falls to the ground

But I cannot watch, my dear
No I can’t watch

You said, you said happiness, oh
Still waiting for it to come around
Daydreaming life as you want it
Until it all falls to the ground

You said, you said happiness, oh
Still waiting for it to come around
Daydreaming how you would change it
Until it all falls to the ground

Fall to the ground, fall to the ground
Fall to the ground, fall to the ground
Fall to the ground, fall to the ground
