The Glittering Prize Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

There's a silent movie running off
Its real inside my mind
As I try to fall asleep tonight
On prescription lullabys
In the darkness there's a doorway
That leads me back to you forever

But these days there's only you and I in photographs
Ambitions and dreams we've shared
Now I wonder who has got the last laugh

'Cause I know you're crying
And you know I'm cold inside
Got no expectations for my pride
As I reach for that glittering prize

I remember on our wedding day
Looking back at you
Our eyes met and we said goodbye
As we both said "I do"
Didn't I make a promise, baby
I would stand by you forever

But sometimes the best laid plans
Flare up and blow away
And fairytale logic comes
Sweeps you heart, your soul, your world away

'Cause I know you're crying
And you know I'm cold inside
And I'm tired of living with that lie

And now time is flying
And you know I miss that fire
'Cause I feel for you, I've got desire
So I reach for that glittering prize

No doll's house dreams or valentines
Just the future at the door
Just leaving trains and empty rooms
A broken band of gold
'Cause love don't live here anymore

And some nights I'll come and see you
And I know you'll let me in
Two strangers in silence now
'Cause you know in love
We could never win

'Cause I know you're crying
And you know I'm cold inside
And I'm tired of living with this lie, these days

'Cause now time is flying
And you know I miss that fire
'Cause I feel for you
I've got desire, baby, baby

In my world tonight
(In your world tonight)
Reach for that glittering prize
(In my world)

That's all I ever seemed to do
(In your world tonight)
Was reach for that glittering prize
(In my world)

I lost myself when I lost you
(In your world tonight)
As I reached for that glittering prize
(In my world)

And I hope that all your dreams come true
(In your world tonight)
When you reach for that glittering prize
(In my world)

In your world
In my world tonight
