Your face in a dream returns
Once in a lifetime comes
And it passes by

I’m never on your side
And you must be blind
If you don’t know why

She'll always take you for granted
A voice in the back of my mind said
You could be waiting your whole life
For her to open her eyes

…music pause…

I’m never on your side
And you must be blind
If you don’t know why

She'll always take you for granted
A voice in the back of my mind said
You could be waiting your whole life
For her to open her eyes
For her to open her eyes


She'll always take you for granted
A voice in the back of my mind said
You could be waiting your whole life
For her to open her eyes
For her to open her eyes

(get ready for the best part!)
la la la la la la..
la la la la la la..
la la la la la la..

    General Commentbeautiful song...i think the song's saying that it'll be a while if and until she finally realizes how good this is for her...but she's just spoiled and taking it all for granted.

    General CommentI LOVE this song. It's probably about a guy that is telling his friend that he is wasting his time with this girl. His friend is in denial and accuses the singer of "never being on his side." when in truth he is just trying to be helpful and helping his friend see that this girl will always take him for granted and to wait for her to stop taking him for granted... could take "your whole life, for her to open her eyes"
    and yes... the La la la la... is really beautiful.

    General CommentJust giving more opinions, but that line 'you could be waiting your whole life for her to open her eyes' sounds like someone in a coma?

    General CommentThis could be me singing this song to a friend of mine in a bad relationship, who want's to end it but can't seem to go through with it.

    General CommentI think he's telling a girl he doesn't love her because she hasn't realized that.

    My InterpretationI mean he's telling her he doesn't love her because she still hasn't realized that... **
