Lyrics
There's a silent movie
Running off its reel inside my mind
As I try to fall asleep tonight
On prescription lullabies
In the darkness there's a doorway
That leads me back to you forever
But these days there's only
You and I in photographs
Ambitions and dreams we've shared
Now I wonder who has got the last laugh
Cause I know you're crying
And you know I'm cold inside
Got no expectations for my pride
And I reach for that glittering prize
I remember on our wedding day
Looking back at you
Our eyes met and we said goodbye
As we both said "I do"
Didn't I make a promise baby
I would stand by you forever
But sometimes the best-laid plans
Flare up and blow away
And fairytale logic comes
Sweeps you heart
Your soul' your world away
Cause I know you're crying
And you know I'm cold inside
And I'm tired of living with that lie
And now time is flying
And you know I miss that fire
But I feel for you
I've got desire
So I reach for that glittering prize
No doll's house dreams
Or valentines
Just the future at the door
Just leaving trains and empty rooms
A broken band of gold
Cause love don't live here anymore
And some nights I'll come and see you
And I know you'll let me in
Two strangers in silence now
Cause you know in love
We could never win
I know you're crying
And you know I'm cold inside
And I'm tired of living with this lie
These days
Cause now time is flying
And you know I miss that fire
Cause I feel for you
I've got desire
Baby baby
In my world (in your world tonight)
Reach for that glittering prize (in my world)
That's all I ever seemed to do (in your world tonight)
Was reach for the glittering prize (in my world)
I lost myself when I lost you (in your world tonight)
As I reached for that glittering prize (in my world)
And I hope that all your dreams come true (in your world tonight)
When you reach for that glittering prize (in my world)
In your world
In my world tonight
