There are some things that you never want to see
Situations that you struggle to believe
Now you’re older and I am older too
There are some things that you said you’d never do
But we both know that’s not entirely true
You did them, didn’t we do them together?

So where did you go?
What do you know?
You can’t hide your head in the clouds forever
What did we say about drifting away?
We said it won’t happen to us, now we’re too clever
Well I guess we weren’t that clever

Piece is moving, made the picture fall apart
So you take them and go back to the start
Well it leaves you, wondering what you began with
There were chances that you never seemed to take
Opportunities were handed on a plate
So you sit there, waiting for fortune to find you

So where did you go?
What do you know?
You can’t hide your head in the clouds forever
What did we say about drifting away?
We said it won’t happen to us cos we’re too clever
Well I guess we weren’t that clever after all

So where did you go?
What do you know?
You can’t hide your head in the clouds forever
What did we say about drifting away?
We said it won’t happen to us cos we’re too clever
Well I guess we’re not that clever after all

You can’t hide your head in the clouds forever
You can’t hide your head in the clouds forever
It won’t happen to us cos we’re too clever
You can’t put your head in your hands forever
