lyrics

(©1998 the matthew show and Jeff Simms)

Someone says I'm down
I'm down before I know it
And I need a friend
'Cause friends will always show it

CHORUS:
But no one ever tells me no until I know it
And no one ever feels me out before I feel it
And I know it's been a long, long time
What do you do, how do you know
Why do I feel like marrying you
How do you see the things I see
What makes you believe in me
And I know it's been a long, long time

Everybody thinks
Yeah, they think the world's a picture
And all the people in it
Are there for just their pleasure

We all have wide screens
Making us believe
That we are the center
That we will always be

(CHORUS)

This time it will be different
And I need to remind myself
Things don't always stay the same
And I need to remind myself
Turnabout is fair play
And I need to remind myself
Nights can turn to day
And I need to remind myself
It's been a long, long time
It's a long, long time

(CHORUS)
