Lay down your head
And look to your window
Where do you go
When it's not where you're going?
And how do you see
When the light isn't shining?
Where you could be
If you worked out the timing

And how does it feel when the world comes on so real and true?
And how do you do the things you do to you?

If I were a king
And you were a lady
What would I sing
To say what I'm saying?
And would you believe
The verses left open?
The heart on my sleeve
The rhyming all broken

And how does it feel when the world comes on so real and true?
And how do you do the things you do to you?

Sell me a river
And I'll skate away
To the downstream
Where I did play
So easy minded
Like a hill on the skyline
Tripped up and blinded
Getting lost on the sidelines

And how does it feel when the world comes on so real and true?
And how do you do the things you do to you?
And how do you do the things you do to you?
