lyrics

How was I to know that she was serious?
So mysteriously out there on a limb.
All the while she's acting so delirious.
So mysteriously out there looking in.

She's got time.
Hills to climb.
And she might just fall off the beaten path.
But once you fall forward,
You don't fall back.

And Rome wasn't built in a daydream.
It took years and years of fighting just to make it true.

Half the time, I can't believe in anything.
There's so many things pretending to be true.
Any little word could mean so many things.
Almost anything could change your point of view.

Take your time.
You'll be fine.
'Cause you can't plant seed in the neutral ground.
And no one's gonna hear if you don't make a sound.

And Rome wasn't built in a daydream.
It took years and years of fighting just to make it true.
And you know things aren't always what they seem.
But it seems to me it's all the same to you.

How was I to know that she was serious?
So mysteriously out there...

Rome wasn't built in a daydream.
But the things that we believe aren't always true.
But it seems to me it's all the same to you.
