lyrics

Found myself in a golden haze
Never wasted so many days
but I wish they'd put that silver spoon back in my mouth

back when it could rain all day
I had sunshine when the sky was grey
but we were kids then look where we are now

all because good times weren't good enough
we wanted someone to love

before the jesters got on the stage
for an hour they prepared their play
but the wild beasts they fed could not be allowed

The king was so dismayed
he grabbed some coffee down at the cafe
but he started the party and I wish I was there now

all because good times weren't good enough
we wanted someone to love

Take all those twisted cells inside your brain
all the happiness you felt begins to wane
scrape the crusty bow along those metal strings
as the shell inside your veins starts to ring

This house ain't home no more
it eroded long ago

You were my best friend
you're my best friend, you were my
You made my life OK on a rainy
you made my

and I think I've had enough
of this unrequited love
