I've been searching
Not the first or the last
Trying to figure out the mystery of the half empty glass
Time is turning for the rest of the world
While a temporary leap of faith helps the story unfurl

They say that hearts don't stay broken
Even though the scars remain
And eyes don't stay swollen
Even if it feels that way

[Chorus]
But it's not that serious
I'm a big boy now
And I'm not that delirious
So don't show me how
Cause I've gotten beyond the agony
And my perspective is saving me

Never doubted what the cards would reveal
And if the joker showed his ugly face
Not that big of a deal
It's just a moment in the scheme of it all
But it's difficult to visualize when the axe starts to fall

But then a heart won't stay broken
Even on it's darkest day
The right door could open
Pick you up and drift away

[Chorus]

With all the confusion
How does anybody come through
But life is illusion
And no one can tell you what you've gotta do

You know a heart won't stay broken
Even on it's darkest day
The right door could open
Pick you up and drift away
