Is this what you meant?
What you dreamed of?
Your plans
Do you feel like you
(Oh, ah, oh)
On the road

Better than this
Better than this
I've been checking my sums
Holding my photograph up
Through the paper
(Oh, ah, oh)
I wish that I'd done
You can hang your hopes
You can put your faith
You can tell yourself
You could do so much

Get a grip on yourself
But you're too late
Wouldn't want it anyway
Just a photograph
'Cause there
Holding your hand
In a freeze-frame
Using your name
And everyone
And everyone will glow
You'll see your name

You could do so much
You could do so much
You could do so much
