On another world by another star at another place and time
In another state of consciousness in another state of mind
Everything was almost perfect, everything fell into place
That you may reach a different verdict
If all the judges missed the case

In a parallel universe that's happening right now
Things between us must be worse but it's hard to see just how

And everything could have been perfect
Everything in the right place
Then I wouldn't have to play the suspect
Accused, abandoned and disgraced

I didn't shoot, I didn't pull the trigger
It wasn't me, I'm just a plain and simple singer
I heard the sound, I turned my head around
To watch our love shot down

In another lonely universe, we're laying side by side
And no one's hurt and no one's cursed and no one needs to hide

And everything is almost perfect
Everything is almost right
There are never any conflicts
There are never any fights

    My InterpretationHe believes that the relationship between him and the other person could be perfect, if the circumstances were different. He feels that they are right for each other, but something happened that drew them apart.

    General CommentI think he's saying "plain and simple singer," but otherwise the lyrics look right. I really love this song - it's like he's trying to escape the events of his own plane by exploring different ones and what could be happening there.

    General Commenti aggree with your correctness on the lyrics because thats the way I heard it, and i confirmed it by the lyric booklet...putting that in the words make the song more personal, a cool touch

    General CommentWe will never live in a perfect world; something will always fall short and ruin what could have made a "perfect" (universe). Best song on the album.
