I wish I was, though

I used to know it all, I was so much smarter then

Asked me a question, got the answer, again and again

Knew all the happy secrets, knew all the sorry lies,

I was a fountain of knowledge, I was oh so wise

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

Found out the truth quickly,

The harder I look, the less I see

 

Verse:

 

Was so much happier in the sand,

pretending, just a sleight of hand;

An illusion, a trick of the light

Suddenly it's clear; daylight breaks the night

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus:

 

Chorus:

 

The man I never was stared back from the glass

No flaws, no doubts, but it could never last

Uncertainly surrounds me now, light fades to black

I want the old me; I want my delusion back

 

Verse:

 

I knew just what to say, I knew just what to do;

I knew just how to act; I knew when things were through,

I never went on and on and on at length

so cool under presser; sure of myself was a strength

 

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus:

 

Repeat Chorus:

 

END
