Open house was on a Sunday-
It's getting harder to pretend.
People pushing through the door-
Wearing clothes they can't afford;
I always said I'd never be like one of them.

Between the younger years of restless
And the settled here-and-now.
All these questions that I ask-
And now that I am looking back,
I see that what I had was what I found.

So why did I wish for a better life?
After everything that I tried-
I couldn't see it.
But if I only understood-
It's the only place
I never thought to look.

Somehow I never even noticed-
All the beauty in between.
A simple word, a quiet house-
A kiss before we fall asleep here on the couch.
All I have is all I need.

So why did I wish for a better life?
After everything that I tried-
I couldn't see it.
But if I only understood-
It's the only place
I never thought to look.
Ohh.
Thought to look.
Ohh, ohh.

Between the younger years of restless
And the settled here-and-now.
Oh, why did I doubt?

Why did I wish for a better life?
After everything that I tried-
I couldn't see it.
But if I only understood-
It's the only place
I never thought to look.
