lyrics

I looked far away I looked twenty-five years down the line.
I looked to the hills for an outline of what could me mine.
They say that all things are revealed in the fullness of time,
In the fullness of time.

You asked for my reasons you asked for my whys, but you
Never once listened to my honest replies. You
Told me three chords and the truth would be fine, but I
Play twenty-one, and tell little white lies.

I listened though wind and though rain just to hear my own voice. But the
Sea of advice and opinion would drown out the noise. But
Answers will float to the surface as you make your choice, as
You make your choice.

You asked for my reasons, you asked for my rhymes, but you
Never confessed to your miniscule crimes. You
Told me three chords and the truth would be fine, but I
Play twenty-one, and tell little white lies. But I

Don’t want to go, no I don’t want to leave you at all. But it’s
Hard when you know your back is up against wall. And I
Know, yes I know, yes I know that we’ve got to let go,
We’ve got to let go.

You asked for my reasons you asked for my whys, but you
Never once listened to my honest replies. You
Told me three chords and the truth would be fine, but I
Play twenty-one, and tell little white lies.

You asked for my reasons, you asked for my rhymes, but you
Never confessed to your miniscule crimes. You
Told me three chords and the truth would be fine, but I
Play twenty-one, and tell little white lies.
