I knew what I wanted and I was fixed on it
I was sure of it, I could've been wrong
It seems like it's never quite like
I thought it'd be
The reality, am I where I belong?


It's not like they said


It feels like most everything's out of focus in my mind
I'm trying to make some sense out of what I left behind
The difference in who I am and the one want to be
It seemed so much easier when there was something to believe


A different perspective now and the world I see
Is in front of me, and everything's wrong
The grass was so much greener when it was next to me
Now it's under me, am I where I belong?


The world, it only seems to change from where you look
Much different than the pictures that they took
It's nothing like they said it would be

    General CommentI've been listening to Face to Face for awhile now. But when this CD came out, this particular song spoke to me.

    General CommentI think this song is about how the changes in your life that you can't do anything about affect who you are, and the decisions that you make. How all these changes make you feel different. Changes like moving away from friends or a girlfriend/boyfriend you've had for many years, or anything like that. Face to face is amazing, can't wait for warped.
