I can see a storm awaiting
Quietly anticipating
Don't deny it, no debating
A lie for a lie
A truth for a truth

Cruel but everybody does it
Thought by now I'd rise above it
You complain but don't discuss it
A lie for a lie
A truth for a truth

I know what thoughts are on your brain
Even if they're not the same
close enough so don't explain
A lie for a lie
A truth for a truth

Once in a while there's this girl I don't know in my dreams
She reminds me of a lot of people
But she's someone that I've never seen
And she's perfect
