lyrics

I’ve been a dancer
and I’ve been a waiter
still looking for answers
all these years later
I’ve given the orders
I’ve taken commands
been stuck on the border
of the promised land

and I hope my eyes will open
wake up when the spell is broken

I’ve walked home with blisters
I’ve ridden in taxis
lean over I’ll whisper
the names if you ask me
I’ve practiced in secret
I’ve taken the classes
I’ve gone out to seek it
in rose colored glasses

is there hope my eyes will open
wake up when the spell is broken

I’ve guessed the question
I’ve asked it so often
I’ve learned my lesson
and quickly forgotten

I, I, I
I, I, I

I’ve played with matches
and I’ve burned my bridges
I’ve sifted the ashes
in search of riches
I’ve lost what I knew
I’ve been reminded
what will I do
when I finally find it

it’s my hope my eyes will open
wake up when the spell is broken

I, I, I
I, I, I
