It's just coincidence
Well, you can talk that way
But I have to say, I don't believe in it
But with the chill of chance
I desired to dance the days away

And I wasn't worried at all
Sneaking through, through the back door
No, I wasn't worried at all
Dreams are what you live for

Waiting for the light to turn green
And carry me home
To the kindest eyes that I've ever seen
Carry me home
Well, can you tell me how will it be now?
How will it be?
Can you tell me how will it be now?
How will it be?

Well, we were younger then
And the days were long and slow
But were we wiser then?
I couldn't say, I wouldn't know

But I wasn't worried at all
I had someone to run to
No I wasn't worried at all
I knew which way the wind blew

Picking out the chaos and gloom
Carry me home
I watched the ceiling spin 'round the room
Carry me home
Well, can you tell me how will it be now?
How will it be?
Can you tell me how will it be now?
How will it be?

In a cold world how will it be?
In the real world how will it be?
In the lonely world how would it be?
Will the ghosts just stop following me?

In a cold world how will it be?
In the real world how will it be?
Beg and crawl, how will it be?
Will the ghosts just stop following me?

Oh, now drawn to the sun
He was the only one
He calls out to everyone
For his only son

From the window of my room
I can see the colored moon now
Haunting the look in my eyes now, what will you see?
If you could look into my eyes now, what would you see?
What would you see?
Just coincidence
You can talk that way
It's just coincidence
Well you can talk that way
Don't believe him
Don't believe him

    General CommentTo me, this song is about someone waking up to a cold, cruel and stoic reality after living in an innocent and carefree way for a while. This innocence is the innocence of love - of throwing yourself wholeheartedly into something without ever thinking of the consequences, only to find despair once that love is lost.

    The price that one pays for wisdom and maturity is a permanent disconnection from what is pure and beautiful. Once we are confronted with loss, we are never the same again, and the memories of everything that was meaningful and seemed to last forever haunt us. Because the songs depicts this in such a vivid and poignant way, it will always be one of my favourites, a song which I keep close to my heart.
