till the colors run together, it’s not the answer you expected,
till we all try to remember what it felt like when we were children,
+++ and the world was spinning ‘round us,
+++ for the beauty fraught with danger,
+++ before the answers, before they taught us,
+++ how to worry, what to wonder, now you know
things are never gonna be the same again..

till the colors form a pattern, make a patchwork in your memory,
all the moments stitched together, call it comfort, call it history,
+++++ with an angel at your shoulder,
+++++ how you loved her and what you told her,
+++++ when the world was spinning ‘round us,
+++++ before the answers, before they taught us,
+++++ now you know,
+++ things are never gonna be the same again..

+++++ at the first light of the morning,
+++++ as the darkness slowly softens,
+++++ till the colors break the surface,
+++++ is that the answer you expected? no,
+++++ things are never gonna be the same again..
+++ it’s not the answer you expected…
