Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
We all lead such elaborate lives
Wild ambitions in our sights
How an affair of the heart survives
Days apart and hurried nights
Verse 2
Seems quite unbelievable to me
I don't want to live like that
Seems quite unbelievable to me
I don't want to love like that
I just want our time to be slower and gentler, wiser, free
Verse 3
We all live in extravagant times
Playing games we can't all win
Unintended emotional crimes
Take some out, take others in
Verse 4
I'm so tired of all we're going through
I don't want to live like that
I'm so tired of all we're going through
I don't want to love like that
I just want to be with you now and forever, peaceful, true
Verse 5
I wish I had the courage
To tell you face to face
But I could wait forever
For the perfect time and place
Verse 6
We all live such elaborate lives
We don't know whose words are true
Strangers, lovers, husbands, wives
Hard to know whose loving who
Verse 7
Too many choices tear us apart
I don't want to live like that
Too many choices tear us apart
I don't want to love like that
I just want to touch your heart, may this confession be the start
