When Everything Falls Apart

MIRRORS, SMOKE & LIES

VERSE 1
I remember when I still believed in magic,
My dad took us all out to see
a magician who made an elephant disappear,
how he did it is still a mystery to me

VERSE 2
But that night I knew it had to be magic,
‘cause I saw it with my own eyes
and anyone telling me different 
was telling me lies

CHORUS
Oh, but you can’t always believe your eyes
sometimes the truth is compromised
I believed with all my heart that night,
but it was only mirrors, smoke and lies

VERSE 3
I remember when I still believed in justice
and I would have my day in court
but then they trotted out their lawyers
with their experts and reports

VERSE 4
And I found the truth didn’t really matter
only the perception of wrong or right
and their smokescreen fooled a jury
into thinking black was white

BRIDGE
Oh, you can’t always trust what you see
in the end we make our own reality

VERSE 5
I remember when I still believed in true love
the kind that lasts eternally
I believed I could give my heart to you
and you’d give yours back to me

VERSE 6
And that night I knew it had to be magic
cause I saw it with my own eyes
and anyone telling me different
was telling me lies
