Oh, look at the view.
Look at the people running, they've
so much to do
better than you, better than take what's coming
nothing's ever new
and everything that looks so good from here
living out a dream I've had for a year
living out a dream I've had...

Oh, the avenue,
they're taking the trees down and they're
asking me and you
What can we do? We can stand in a circle paying tribute with

paper and glue.

And everything that looks so good from here
living out a dream I've had for a year
living out a dream I've had...

I was sure I'd move to heaven but the feeling didn't last,
We've never been forgiven for the things done in the past.
I often stand and stare at you, protected by the glass
But I have nothing more to say to you so please don't ever ask.

Oh, hidden from view,
the place that we keep from
How I miss those elegant lines
and the sun on the blinds
They beckon me down here from what I know now
are sunnier climes.

and everything that looks so good from here
living out a dream I've had for a year
living out a dream I've had...

I was sure I'd move to heaven but the feeling didn't last,
We've never been forgiven for the things done in the past.
I often stand and stare at you, protected by the glass
But I have nothing more to say to you so please don't ever ask.

I never knew that I had been here before.
They're running through houses and breaking down doors
No matter where you go they'll follow you,
follow you, follow you...

I was sure I'd move to heaven but the feeling didn't last,
We've never been forgiven for the things done in the past.
I often stand and stare at you, protected by the glass
But I have nothing more to say to you so please don't ever ask.
