you can't believe everything you hear
that's what gets you into trouble my dear
the mind tells lies just as well as you and i
but it will try and steal the reins and fly

i can tell you're tired but i know you'll never sleep
'cause you've got a head filled with secrets that you keep
i can tell you're lost and i want to be your guide
but i can't compete with those things you hold inside

you fall fast 'cause you think more than you'd like to
then you say you're okay with being not okay
well, i don't mean to rain on your parade
but you've got to stop living your life this way

don't say yes if what you really mean is no
or you'll get caught in an undertow
don't sweat the details, they'll only drag you down
and life's too short to worry about them anyhow

you fall fast 'cause you think more than you'd like to
then you say you're okay with being not okay
well, i don't mean to rain on your parade
but you've got to stop living, you've got to stop living your life this way

i watch you stare off into dead space
are you content or are you dreaming of some other place
if we all listened to every little thought
we'd never know just when to stop

we'd fall fast if we took advice from everyone
we'd get caught up and say i never saw it that way
don't trick yourself into believeing what's not there
or you'll never see the truth even if it's plain and clear

you fall fast 'cause you think more than you'd like to
then you say you're okay with being not okay
well, i don't mean to rain on your parade
but you've got to stop living your life this way

you can't believe everything you hear
that's what gets you into trouble my dear
