Our lives run different ways
Through the rain I see you in the sun
Our star shines anyway
If you wish upon it we are one

We're served up on a plate
The pedestal is high enough to fall
And if in time
We can see the errors of our ways

Would anyone change it anyhow
Our time is up
I bet you'd only run
If you saw what goes inside our own

I bet you'd lead the way
If it were up to you to decide
But it's not
