Welcome to the real life
Welcome to the real life
I've come to realise it's no game
No one is the same
There's so much more to life than meets the eye

At night I just can't sleep
The mornings come too soon
My head is swimming in
The mess around this room
Voices in the street
I hear them telling me

Welcome to the real life
Open up your eyes
Listen to the words they're saying
The chords are changing
So take off your disguise and step out of the night

Sometimes I just can't think
I can't think what to do
The noise is deafening
I can't get through to you
Voices in the street
I hear them asking me

What are we coming to?
Why are the reasons so few?
What are we coming to?
What does it mean to you?
After all we've been through
It all comes down to you
It all comes down to you

Welcome to the real life

    welcome to real life rah rah real life is the name of the album and coincedence the opening song and opening lyrics are welcome to real life.
    then you say why thanks evermore.
    I think this is a nice song yet it sounds similar to running.
    Needs a bit more difference to running i think

    General Commentnicole.x, i think it has the same sort of energy vibe as running, and possibly the same themes as running, such as learning and moving on, but i don't think it's like OMGZTWINS with running.

    I definitely think that this song is an awakening to reality and opening your eyes to a situation or situations.

    This song, especially in the last bit "What are we coming to/Why are the reasons so few..." etc., could be a relationship either failing or beginning.

    General Commentwhen i first read the lyrics i thought of a religious interpretation: He is confused "At night I just can't sleep""My head is swimming in the mess around this room" and searching for answers "What are we coming to?..." and in the end he realizes that "There's so much more to life than meets the eye" and" It all comes down to you"(=God).

    Just my thoughts on it...
