Verse 1

You're so cynical,

Always clinical.

You trust no one,

You don't have fun.

You see the world in a negative light,

And all the colors change to black and white.

Chorus

But I wish you'd try

To see it once through my eyes.

You'll see friends who try to take away your heartache.

Everyone won't always indulge in give and take.

You just need to turn off your alarms,

And embrace life with open arms.

Verse 2

You're way too distant,

Living in your den,

You keep us out,

You have your doubts

About anybody being genuine,

When it's you who treats others like linchpins.

Chorus

And I wish you'd try

To see it once through my eyes.

You'll see friends who try to take away your heartache.

Everyone won't always indulge in give and take.

You just need to turn off your alarms,

And embrace life with open arms.

Bridge

Stop seeing flags in bright red,

Stop living life in shades of gray,

With the fear of catching blue.

Don't you try to talk me into it too.

You don't know how I wish you,

Chorus

I wish you'd try

To see it once through my eyes?

You'll see friends who try to take away your heartache.

Everyone won't always indulge in give and take.

You just need to turn off your alarms,

And embrace life with open arms.
