lyrics

Some senseless act of beauty
Knocking at your heart's door
And you wish that you could open
But your heart, your heart
Is too damn sore

There was a place, and there was a time
You had your hopes and your dreams and your life
But all of that changed one night
And you wish, and you wish, and you wish
That you could feel

Pain that sneaks around in your room
Whenever she's around
And you thought you had the answers
But your were just too young, your feet not on the ground

There was a place, and there was a time
When all that you thought was of your lonely life
Pray that it changed one night
And you wish, and you wish, and you wish
That you could feel

Chorus:
Time to fly, no time to run away
You got to tear this wall down, the world's outside the line
Before it's too late

Yeah, you'll find another way
You've got to pay the piper
You know he'll raise his rates
And you'll travel down this lonely road forever
Beneath this fertile crescent moon

Like the trample of weary feet
Across your worn out soul
An emptiness that surrounds your heart
Hidden by your smiles while you play the role

There was a place, and there was a time
When you first felt your heart and your soul start to die
Watched the stars one night
And you wish, and you wish, and you wish
That you could feel

Chorus
