I try not to let these realizations by
Because with time they wipe the innocence from my eyes
Now the days are so much longer
And the nights they seem so restless
Feelings come with clutter to weigh heavy on my chest

(Pre-Chorus)
I feel I might have almost slipped this skin
I fear that it's easier now for you to get in

(Chorus)
The innocence was swept out from under us
Perceptions change when they turn the lights on
The years bring out the things I try to hide

It gets harder to ignore the once invisible
When truth comes, beside age and destroys what I thought was invincible, and I...
I could never go back and start it all again
There's too much clutter here without the ignorance

(Repeat Pre-Chorus And Chorus)

The years bring out the things I try to hide

I just wish it wasn't such a slap in the face
I just wish it wasn't such a slap in the face
A slap in the face

The innocence was swept out from under us
Perceptions change when they turn the lights on, and...

(Repeat Chorus)

The years bring out the things I try to hide
The years bring out the things I try to hide
The years bring out the things I try to hide
