I don't remember how it started, I don't know how it ends
World keeps turnin' makin' me dizzy, feels like I blew it again

When I was young they told me this would be easy
When times got tough they were changin' their tune
They should of told me that they were teas'n
When they promised the moon

I walked through all the doors, read all the signs
Felt I had nothin' to lose
Each of us you know we've got our own problems
We wear the same kind of shoes

When we were young they told us this would be easy
When times got tough they were changin' their tune
They should of told us that they were teas'n
When they promised moon

Why do they lie
Why do they promise you can touch the sky
Why do they lie
Why do they promise the moon
Why do they promise the moon

    Song MeaningI think the meaning of this song(to me at least), is that when you're a little kid people tell you that everything is going to be ok and that life is easy and then you get older and it gets tough and they turn their backs on you and leave you on your own and tell you "hey that's life." At least that's how it is with me, adults always told me when I was little that I would grow up and have money and be rich and be happy. Well you liars, it didn't turn out that way.
