I see you run to make a call, putting up to someone free
Your life and my life, they don't touch at all
And that's no way to be, we've never seemed so far
What's real? What's true? I ain't turning my back on you
Where're you goin'? Where've you been? Making wishes, watching dreams?
It might be simple, it might be true, I might be overwhelmed by you
You might be empty, the way your eyes just look right through
It's such a mess now anyway, wish fulfillment every day
I don't believe you, now I can't hear a word you say
I see you shaking in the light, reading the headline news
The others they're not quite so bright, you want them to choose you
I could almost see your face tonight, singing simple rhythm'n'blues you'll always be a star
Shake it baby, come on scream, did I see your face in a magazine?
Your doubt it leaves me sore, I can't stand it anymore
It's my favorite shot of you, you look so pretty your eyes were true
I'm still on your side in spite of everything you do
We're only blood on light on life, new pretty pictures every night
Come wish beside me, don't you know you know what's right?
