Lyrics
(McNabb)

A different set of eyes for every story
A heaven not so far away from hell
A bittersweet reminder of the way things used to be
Before that love we had around us slipped and fell

Chorus: It's right there in your eyes
We can't go back the way we came
There's more to lose and less to gain
In dreams of yesterday
There's no surprise
You walk the wire you're bound to fall
You run to him and I recall
The time when you were mine
When you were mine

Now I may take a fast train
Burn all my credentials as I go
It's stranger than religion
It's a realm of indecision
It's the only place in town I want to go

Repeat Chorus At times like these don't disregard what's gone before
There's always something worthwhile knockin' on your door

Repeat Chorus
