YOU WERE DREAMING OF A BETTER LAND
AND SHE BROKE RIGHT THROUGH YOUR WINDOW
YOU HAD IT IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND
BUT YOU LET IT FALL, YOU LET IT FALL
YOU KNEW THAT THIS WAS SOMETHING GRAND
WHEN HER SUNLIGHT MOVED YOUR SHADOW
BUT IT WASN’T QUITE THE WAY YOU PLANNED
WHEN YOU HAD IT ALL, YOU HAD IT ALL
IT’S NOT SO EASY
CHORUS
DON’T GO THINKING GOOD TIMES IS ALL THAT I CAN SEE
WHEN I SEE YOU
DON’T GO FLASHING GOOD SIGNS OF THE MAN YOU WANNA BE
NOT IN FRONT OF ME
IN THE CORNER OF A DARKENED ROOM
WHERE YOUR PRAYERS HAVE TURNED TO ASHES
YOUR HEART ROSE UP TO RIDE THE MOON
BUT YOU LET IT FALL, YOU LET IT FALL
SO YOU CRAWLED INSIDE A VACANT TOMB
WHERE THE HERO NEVER PASSES
AND SLEPT UPON A NIGHT IN JUNE
WHEN YOU HAD IT ALL, YOU HAD IT ALL
IT WAS SO EASY
CHORUS
BRIDGE
I COULD SMELL YOUR FEAR
BEFORE YOU MADE IT CLEAR
AND I CAN LEAVE YOU HERE
THAT SHOULD BE EASY
CHORUS
DON’T GO THINKING GOOD TIMES IS ALL THAT I CAN SEE
DON’T GO FLASHING GOOD SIGNS OF THE MAN YOU WANNA BE
(REPEAT)
