And they wish Somehow I wait for an answer When I already know the truth

And hate it

Somehow I dream of something else

Someone I know I'll never be

And sometimes when I wake up

I think it's real

I keep waiting…watching

As the months go by

As the flame within me

Is frozen in fear

As the girls and the boys

They all make their case

But for me, it means more, something

I'll never have

But I wait…and I watch

As the hours fly past

As the hope within me

Is blinded by fear

As the girls and the boys

Lose their innocence

And they cry, and they laugh, and they want

Something more

Somehow I dream of something else

Someone I know I'll never be

And sometimes when I wake up

I think it's real

When I'm lost…and alone

As the days go by

And the love within me

Is darkened with hate

As the girls and the boys

Turn their minds to "one thing"

And they laugh, and they cry, and they want

Me to be…like them

As the days…slowly drift

And the hours pass me

And my whole clarity

Is torn by my rage

As the boys and the girls

Turn away from my mind

And they laugh, and they cry, and they ask

Me to choose

Somehow I dream of something else

Someone I know I'll never be

And sometimes when I wake up

I think it's real

When I'm the only one left

As the minutes draw down

And my sanity

Is lost to their "desire"

As the girls and the boys

Lose their way, and their hope

And they laugh, and they cry, and they wish

They had stayed like me

They pretend to "believe"

As seconds count

As they think they're "in love"

Only with sex appeal

As the boys and the girls

Get married and have kids

And they laugh, and they cry, and they wish

They hadn't lied to themselves
