I heard you say and rightly so
"We turn our backs on we most need to know"
Give in too fast then give in to no one
And once they've got you where they want you
They don't wanna know...

I could leave or I could stay
It doesn't make a bit of difference anymore, anyway
With each and every circumstance
I lose knowledge and an innocence
Won't find me grieving
There's no regretting leaving
When I have to come here
Like I know I have to come here
I can see I have to come here
For my view to be clear
For my view to be clear

It's easy to forget how far we've come
How near I feel to where we first begun
Pushed it too far
I won't pull it too slow
Cause where the story ends depends on how far we go

I could leave or I could stay
It doesn't make a bit of difference anymore, anyway
With each and every circumstance
I lose knowledge and an innocence
Won't find me grieving
There's no regretting leaving
When I had to come here
Like I know I had to come here
Oh I know I had to come here
For my view to be clear

And now I see I had to be here
Oh I know I had to be here
I can see I had to be here
For my view is now clear

So roll on blue skies
Roll on gray, just roll away
Come on blue skies, come on gray

Just roll away..
