I don't know but it seems that every single dream's
Painted pretty pictures in the air
Then it tumbles in despair and it starts to bend
Until by the end it's a nightmare

But I'm gonna give all that
I've got to give
Cross my heart
And I hope to live

I don't know but it's true, so many things you do
Please, so they leave you feeling warm
It's the calm before the storm
For the habit grows and before you know it, you're deformed

So I'm gonna give all that
I've got to give
Cross my heart
And I hope to live, yeah

I don't know but I see that every thing is free
When you're young and treasures you can take
But the bridge is bound to break
And you reach the end screaming, it's all been a mistake

So, I'm gonna give all that
I've got to give
Cross my heart
And I hope to live

I don't know but it seems that every single dream's
Painted pretty pictures in the air
Then it tumbles in despair, and it starts to bend
Until by the end it's a nightmare

But I'm gonna give all that
I've got to give
Cross my heart
And I hope to live
