we’re simple minds
still we want it all
and things go fast
make us miss the most
of what life can bring to us
of what life can mean to us

she left a scar
she was too well read
and i was the one who was so impressed
i never dared to speak from my heart
seasons change
and i’m still the same
i never can tell what’s inside me
and heaven knows it isn’t that much

we’ll travel far
just to feel at all
when we’re home
and we’re on our own
we can’t look after ourselves
or anyone else

she left a scar
she was too well read
and i was the one who was so impressed
i never dared to speak from my heart
seasons change
and i’m still the same
i never can tell what’s inside me
and heaven knows it isn’t that much
