Love serenade,
Soothe me with the morning sun.
Help me find someone,
Peaceful and non-judgemental.
Holdin' me back,
And make me feel whole with life.
And stay the same.
Life.
Without the pain.

Why must we dream in metaphors?
Try to hold on to something we couldn't understand.
Couldn't understand.
And why must we argue loudly?
When peace is our one salvation.
I couldn't understand
Couldn't understand
Yeah

Ohh, ohh ohh, ohh ohh, ohh ohh
Ohh, ohh ohh, ohh ohh, ohh ohh

Someone lost their faith in, seeking God so they
Someone lost their faith in seeking God so they

Turn to the needle, back to the cradle. They were
Turn to the needle back to the cradle

Rocking it all too long.
Tell me what's going on with your life.
Has it stay the same?

Well why do we dream in metaphors?
Try to hold on to something we couldn't understand.
Couldn't understand.

Tell me why must we argue loudly? When peace is our one,
Why must we argue
Salvation I couldn't understand
Couldn't understand
Yeah

Ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh
Ohh, ohh ohh ohh ohh ohhh...

Life will all stay the same
Life stay the same

Life will ease your pain
Life without no pain or shame

Why must we dream in metaphors?
We're trying to hold on to something we couldn't understand.
Couldn't understand

Tell me why must we argue loudly when peace is our one
Why must we argue
Salvation I couldn't understand
Couldn't understand

Now why must we duh-ream in metaphors
Why do we dream in metaphors
Why do we dream

Something that's lost
Couldn't understand stand stand, I couldn't understand.

And you know I couldn't understand I just couldn't understand.

Couldn't understand stand stand, I couldn't understand.
Ah bah bah bah bah

And you know I couldn't understand, I just couldn't understand.
Aah, bah bah bah bah

Couldn't understand stand stand,
I couldn't understand
And you know I couldn't understand,
I just couldn't understand
Couldn't understand stand stand,
I couldn't understand
And you know I couldn't understand,
I just couldn't understand
Couldn't understand stand stand,
I couldn't understand
And you know I couldn't understand,
I just
