So I wanted goals. I saw all I needed was a home
with a view of something beautiful,
a woman that I trusted, the friends that I grew up with
But it was asking too much for just us
to pray things stay in exactly the same way.

And so we drift together
saying "Every mirror shows the same ugly shell
I've shared forever". We drift together,
yet apart and alone.
The only role for these lonely souls.

And you can see by the lonely numbers on my bank receipts,
And you can see the lonely space between these sheets,
And you can see by the ravenous company I keep,
comforts are few and far between.
So pray things stay in exactly the same way.

And so we drift together
saying: "Every mirror shows the same ugly shell
I've shared forever". We drift together,
yet apart and alone.
The only role for these lonely souls.

But just this once I'll have you know,
this is not a lonely soul.

[This world has other sorrows than love.]

And so we drift together
saying "Every mirror shows the same ugly shell

[This world has other sorrows than love.]

I've shared forever". We drift together,
yet apart and alone.
The only role for these lonely souls.

[This world has other sorrows than love.]

And so we drift together
saying "Every mirror shows the same ugly shell

[This world has other sorrows than love.]

I've shared forever". We drift together,
yet apart and alone.

    General CommentI think this song is about being tattered and torn but still loving life. The simple pleasures are what make us happiest and even though life is tough at times, it's still good so "we pray things stay in exactly the same way"

    General Commenti think your kind of right speed of dark, but i also think its about the opposite, how so called "successful" people with good things can end up lonely and unhappy. it reminds of the story "winter Dreams" by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
