Charades
Lyrics
We try, to feel alright
We can't see, but we know the light
No matter how much we feel
Borrow, beg, give or steal

There I watch you up the road
Carrying your heavy load
All for dreams that hardly show
And who cares or wants to know?

Go ahead and take what's mine
If you would be so kind
In the end we won't have time
To grab what's left behind

Oh God, here I go again!
Want change but hard to bend
Giving advice but who really cares
They've got their life and angry stares

Sun is out but I'm in the shade
Waving our flag at the parade
Using a simple philosophy:
Charades mean more than reality

Go ahead and take what's mine
If you would be so kind
In the end we won't have time
To grab what's left behind

Sylvie I know our love is good!
You know I would if I could
Stop the world from spinning fast
We're flying high but it won't last

Hold on tight we're going down!
Harder than thunder, we're hittin' the ground
Down on earth it's mighty sad
Most don't realize how really bad

I never thought my troubles would keep risin'
Never thought I'd have no places for hidin'
But I keep on movin'
Keep on smilin'
Lord, I'm tryin'
I'm believin'
Look at me believin'
As my troubles risin'
There's no more hidin'

No more, no more, no more, no more hidin'
No more, no more, no more, no more hidin'
