lyrics

EXPECTATIONS

The stars look down upon you
As you walk the empty road
Composed of figures so mighty
So you feel never alone
Dream your nights of greatness
Look to the bow and see
Dream of grace and finesse
But the image is fallacy

Oh it's not reality

Is this not what you expected
Is this not what you foresaw
Your mind is narrow regardless
So your expectations are flawed
Is this not what you had pictured
Is this the fame you saw

Perhaps all will be better
Maybe the pain will be gone
But the cast will leave its mark on you
Like a pen to a book for a song
And for days you'll struggle immensely
With a wish of a lining of gold
But your pockets remain to be empty
It seems all you have is your soul

So keep on playing your role

Is this not what you expected
Is this not what you foresaw
Your mind is narrow regardless
So your expectations are flawed
Is this not what you had pictured
Is this the fame you saw

To go back
To leave behind
The troubles and worries of a man
Who had nothing more than time
To go back
To leave behind
The life of a man who couldn't be happy
For all he had was time
To go back
To leave behind
The troubles and worries of a man
Who had nothing more than time
