I don't care what your man is sayin', he don't know what it's all about
He says one thing when you're lookin' and another when you turn around
Don't get caught up in emotion and how good it used to be
Just remember there's a reason, that's the way it has to be

Now don't you believe him, just take this advice
And don't look for rainbows in a fool's paradise

High up on a distant mountain, he sits lookin' down on you and me
Says it doesn't really matter to him, he knows how it's got to be
See it in his way or forget it, he don't need to come around
Anytime he's got the feelin', he knows that he's got the sound
