I could be wrong, we could wait to tomorrow,
When the money's spent there's nothing left of me.

You're carried off by a weight that just follows
all the others that we drag beneath our feet.
And I said:

You were always like a child.
This was just a fantasy.
Wake me up 'cause I'm so tired of troubled sleep.

Drag me along,
That's a way that I follow
and we're better off pretending to be friends.
It's good enough, that that's all we can offer
Lower your expectations of me

You were always like a child
This was just a fantasy
Wake me up 'cause I'm so tired of troubled sleep.

Our time has come.
We've carried on
so long.
I can't hold on.

We are so young.
We've already spent so much.
what's left?
Hold on.

    General CommentSuch a great new album, 'Player Piano'. I especially love the synth in the chorus of this song.

    Lyric CorrectionI could be wrong, we could wait to tomorrow
    When the money's spent there's nothing left of me
    You're carried off by a weight that just follows
    All the others that we drag beneath our feet
    And I said

    You were always like a child
    This was just a fantasy
    Woke me up inside from some kind of channelled sleep

    Drag me along
    That's a way that I follow
    and we're better off pretending to be friends
    It's good enough, that that's all we can offer
    Lower your expectations of me

    You were always like a child
    This was just a fantasy
    Woke me up inside from some kind of channelled sleep

    Our time has come
    We've carried on
    So long
    I can't hold on
    We are so young
    We've already spent so much
    What's left
    Hold on
