Oh....  life, it's bigger, it's bigger than you, and you are not me,
   The lengths that i will go to, the distance in your eyes,
   Oh no I've daid to much, I've aid it all,
   That's me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight losing my religion,
   Trying to keep a view, and I don't know if I can do it,
   Oh no I've said too much, I haven't said enough,
   I thought that I heard you laughing, I thought that I heard you sing,
   I think I rhought I saw you try,
   Every whisper, every waking hour I'm choosing my confessions,
   Trying to keep an eye on you, like a hurt lost and blind fool,

  F    Am    F    Am
   G       Am                 Em                                Am
Oh, life it's bigger, it's bigger that you and you are not me
                           Em                          Am
The lengths that I will go to, the distance in your eyes
   Em                   Dm                  G
Oh no I've said too much, I set it up
                    Am                       Em                    Am
That's me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight, losing my religion
             Em                   Am
Trying to keep up with you and I don't know if I can do it
   Em                    Dm                     G
Oh no I've said too much, I haven't said enough
                               F                                    Am
I thought that I heard you laughing, I thought that I heard you sing
   Dm                          Am            G
I think I thought I saw you try
         Am                      Em                     Am
Every whisper of every waking hour I'm choosing my confessions
             Em                           Am
Trying to keep an eye on you
   Em                  Dm              G
   Oh no I've said too much, I said it all,
            Am                   Em                                Am
   Consider this, consider this, It's tough this century, consider this,
      Em                      Am                                 Em
  It brought me to my knees, what if all these fantasies coming flailing around
                Dm        G                              F
   And now I've said to much, I thought that I heard you laughing,
                              Am    F                            Am  G  Am
   I thought that I heard you sing, I think I thought I saw you try,
   Am                     Am
   That was just a dream, that was just a dream,
                    Am                       Em
   That's me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight,
             Am                 Em
   Losing my religion trying to keep a view,
         Am                         Em              Dm                   G
   And I don't know if I can do it, Oh no I said to much, I haven't said enough
                              F                                     Am
   I thought that I heard you laughing, I thought that I heard you sing,
     Dm                        Am   Dm                        Am
   I think I thought I saw you try, that was just a dream, to try cry fly try,
   Dm                            Am            G             Am
   That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream, dream.

But That was just a dream
That was just a dream
That's me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight, losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you and I don't know if I can do it
Oh no I've said too much, I haven't said enough
I thought that I heard you laughing, I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try
But that was just a dream
Try, cry, fly, and try
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream
Dream
