If you had realised a single dream
You would not want to be where I've been
If you knew how blessed you are
You would not take this joke so far

If you had lived just a few months more
You would not see me as being a bore
If you'd seen the fire inside my head
You would realise how much I've bled

CHORUS
You make me terrified to see my reflection
I cannot justify this strange new direction
I've been too far away to come back alive
Can I still get back alive?

If you had been there when I had been gone
You would have realised the value of a song
If you had been alone in deserts of your mind
You would still be afraid of what you've still to find

CHORUS

CUTS OUT, KEYBOARD COMES IN AND PLAYS SOLO WITH VOX

If you had been there when I had been gone
You would have realised the value of a song
If you had been alone in deserts of your mind
You would still be afraid of what you've still to find

CHORUS
