Lyrics

Why Is It?

Verse 1
I see the forest
And you see the trees
I feel the thunderstorm ahead
And you feel the breeze
So very different
Yet so much the same
I see the picture in the fire
And you see the flame

Verse 2
I see the garden
And you see the flowers
I count the minutes
One by one
And you count the hours
I hear the music
And you hear the tune
I see the stars
And you see the moon
Nothing’s more certain
Some day real soon
Your heart will be broken
Your heart will be broken

Chorus
Why is it we can only see
What we want to see
Why is it we can never be
Who they want us to be
Why won’t you listen
Hear what I say
I fear the heartache
Heading your way
Why is it we can only see
What we want to see

I n s t r u m e n t a l

Chorus
Why is it we can only see
What we want to see
Why is it we can never be
Who they want us to be
He says the right things
He’s clever that way
He pulls your heartstrings
Every day
Why is it we can only see
What we want to see

Why is it we can only see
What we want to see

Outro
Somebody’s nightmare
Is another man’s dream
It’s not what you think
It’s not how it seems
You’ll come to your senses
Nothing’s more sure
Your heart will be broken
                                            

Love is blind.
Sometimes we can't see what is staring us straight in the face.
