Days, times we will remember when innocence was lost
We let our hearts move on
So many dreams we thought would last forever today it doesn't matter
All those dreams are gone, they are gone, ooh

Tell me how it feels again, oh, show me that it's real and then
I'll walk away, from my own reflection
The stranger that I knew, the stranger that was you
And now I face a cold return to sender, a truce but no surrender
A voice that won't ring true, where are you? Ooh

I reach over the edge and throw a penny in the wishing well
It's so deep that I can tell

That in the real world
There's fewer stars in the sky
And in the real world
You can get hear children cry at night
This is the real world

There is no time, for a life of solitude only hunger and survival
In the world we were born into, we're alone, ooh
And it brings me to my knees our father lay me down to sleep
Father please, pray the Lord my soul to keep

Keep us in the real world, keep us in the real world
Don't have to tell you in the real world
They'll damn you if you try
In the real world let it begin with you and I

This is the real world
There's fewer stars in the sky
This is the real world
You can get hear children cry at night

Now in the real world
They'll damn you if you try
And in the real world
Let it begin with you and I

Living in the real world
Yeah, living in the real world
