Everyone's looking, everyone hides
Everyone's telling everyone lies
We're changing the subject, we're turning away
Away from the heart of it all

You say you are happy, do you think this is fun?
Well, it's only a firefly to the light of the sun
You say this is living, you feel so alive
Well, you know everything dies

Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it's near and it's far
It flows through the heart of us

Welcome to another day
It don't seem that different 'cause nothing has changed
Try to remember, try to remember
When we were just running in place

Reasons for living, never come cheap
But even your best ones can put me to sleep
What I am saying or trying to say
Is that there must be a better way

Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it's near and it's far
It flows through the heart of us

It's already in you, it's already there
You may disagree but I don't really care
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out
What's at the heart of us?
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out
What's at the heart?

Tell me all your wildest dreams
You don't really care, you don't know what they mean
Raiding the closets, skeleton keys
You know it's easier than you think

Even my wonder, even my fear
Only amount to a couple of tears
There is a rhythm, it's near and it's far
It flows through the heart of us

Reasons for living are all very fine
Leaving me cold though they're not really mine
Did you ever find out, did you ever find out
What's at the heart of us?
I don't know, I don't know
