Everyone's looking, everyone hides
Everyone's telling everyone lies
We're changing the subject, we're turning away
Away from the heart of it all

You say you are happy
Do you think this is fun?
Well it's only a firefly to the light of the sun
You say this is living, you feel so alive
Well you know everything dies

[Chorus]
Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it's near and it's far
