It couldn't happen to you
You know it never comes true
You don't believe
You think you're all on your own. 
What are you trying to prove?
It's easy, it's easy for me
I thought I'd never be led by the heart or the hand
I didn't believe
But now I'm beginning to find that now I really don't mind
With you I'm discovering me
I'm suddenly free ('ly free!)
I never thought that

I would sacrifice the kind of life that I know (I know, I know)
Sacrifice yesterday for all of our tomorrows (tomorrow, 'morrow!)
Sacrifice everything, beg steal or borrow (borrow, borrow)
Sacrifice! (sacrifice)

I never thought I could change all the things that I do
That is 'till I met you
And now it isn't so strange my life has been rearranged
It's suddenly true
We were two of a kind believing lovers were blind
Too blind to see the truth
But now I've opened my eyes and I can see through the lie
And now that I do
Looking at you (at you)
No more pretending

I could sacrifice the kind of life that I know (I know, I know)
I'd sacrifice yesterday for all of our tomorrows (tomorrow, 'morrow!)
Sacrifice everything, beg steal or borrow (borrow, borrow)
I'd sacrifice

I can daydream
I can make-believe
I know it's not the real thing, I remember
All the one night stands
As love without the feeling
But now that I see the changes in me
There's no more pretending

I could sacrifice the kind of life that I know (I know, I know)
I'd sacrifice yesterday for all of our tomorrows (tomorrow, 'morrow!)
I could sacrifice the kind of life that I know (I know, I know)
I'd sacrifice yesterday for all of our tomorrows (tomorrow, 'morrow!)
I'd sacrifice everything, beg steal or borrow (borrow, borrow)
I'd sacrifice

I can daydream
I can make believe
I know it's not the real thing, I remember
All the one night stands
As just another sacrifice
