Missing Persons - If Only For The Moment Lyrics

Missing Persons Rhyme & Reason cover art

You try to live up to what others believe
Till you conquer all your fears and just find what you need
In the time that it takes to settle for less
You could have done with what you thought would be best
You set your ideals with the truth that you see
Nothing turns out quite the same as you thought it would be
Counting the times that you've said what you mean
All the reasons to forget what you want to believe

And you know what I'm thinking now
If only for the moment

All that you think has meaning for you
Excuses are many when you seek what is true
You live in your thoughts and believe you are right
Till what you foresee is brought into sight
You set your ideals with the truth that you see
Nothing turns out quite the same as you thought it would be
Counting the times that you've said what you mean
All the reasons to forget what you want to believe

[Repeat: x2]
All the reasons to forget what you want to believe
