Sometimes in a blink of night
As a second goes by
It's missed fate is all it takes to know

The underside
The flipside of right
And life fulfills the promise that you know

Telephones are ringing, voices cry
There's a shadow on the line
There's a wrong you wanna right

Could you hold on
'Cause I need some information
The words you say are making out the wrong way
Could you look back
'Cause I think that your mistaken
Those pretty lies, they can't be right
Symbols and signs designed to read the wrong way

Yeah sometimes in the dead of night
When the world has gone quiet
I look at you and I don't wanna know

What it feels like
To be not by your side
But every season turns and there's an end

Telephones are ringing, voices break
There's a ringing in my ears
There's a song that I don't wanna hear

Could you hold on
'Cause I need some information
The words you say are making out the wrong way
Could you look back
'Cause I think that your mistaken
Those pretty lies, they can't be right
Symbols and signs designed to read the wrong way

I'm reading you the wrong way

Telephones are ringing, voices cry
There's a shadow on the line
There's a wrong you wanna right

When your holding on
When everything is wrong
When you don't believe the messages they're sending

When you look back
When you try to take it back
Your pretty lies, they can't disguise
I see those signs that I'm going the wrong way

Could you hold on
'Cause I need some information
The words you say are making out the wrong way
Could you look back
'Cause I think that your mistaken
Those pretty lies, they can't be right
Symbols and signs designed to read the wrong way

Ohh, Ohh-oh
The wrong way
Did I read you the wrong way?

The wrong way
Am I reading you the wrong way?
I'm reading you the wrong way

    General CommentYes, it's exactly like Mag89 says...He said he didn't include it in the album because he felt he had already explored the idea more succintly in "Sing To Me". Sad but beautiful and simple...
