Keep on looking, find a way out
Get a hold on hoping, scream and shout
A new addiction, another show
Truth and fiction, well I did not know

[Chorus:]
I didn't know you and you didn't know me
Broken branches and a family tree
Blown over this wind is wide
A lone loner's, and our great divide

Running forward, warning signs
Looking backward at the yellow lines
All the great suggestions and the horoscope
Stubborn lessons, and we could not cope

[Chorus]

And I know it's not forever
This time it's not the same
Why can't we live together
And share more than a name

In the name of friendship and the mask of love
Careful not to trip on the kid gloves
Or the cooking apron, and the wedding gown
Fabric so thin that it ties us down

[Chorus]
