The music stopped
You watch the people walk away
Your eyes reflected light that shone down
from the stained glass windowpane
Now we could talk
But the words would come out wrong
And there is no black or white
But still, we just move on

And you're never gonna be the same
from this moment you'll rise
to a height only gained by a compromise
share the glimpse of a new beginning
And now you've changed
But just a small part of me believes this
And you will stay
But just a small part of me believes this

And for good luck,
we wear three keys to keep life prosperous
There's a looming shadow
that stands before us
And what was lost
Was the reason to believe
And the innocence and the will to retrieve it

And you're never gonna be the same
from this moment you'll rise
to a height only gained by a compromise
Share the glimpse of a new beginning
And you're never gonna be the same
from this moment you'll rise
to a height only gained by a compromise
Share the glimpse of a new beginning
And now you've changed
But just a small part of me believes this
And you will stay
But just a small part of me believes this
And just a small part of me believes this
And just a small part of me believes this
And just a small part of me believes this

    General Commentthis song seems to be about a relationship, the person is moving on to greater and bigger things and she wants to believe that person is going to stay with her, but only a "small part of her" believes it.
    i wonder if its about her and conor, but thats a complete assumption on my part.
    very sad, one of my favorites from lynn teeter flower

    General Commentbeautiful!
    i think its about someone leaving her and changing, but she wants to believe that they wont change when they go, but just a small part of her believes this actually will happen. she sounds hopeful
