 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

When you see an accident do not turn your head and look away
I can see detectives are sifting through the wreckage we have made

It starts with only one kiss
It changes everything

TV crews arrive on the scene
They say "See the man who lost everything"
He lies shattered like a glass on the ground
They say "Only you can bring him around
& set me free"

I became delirious
Palm trees gently swaying in the breeze
On a desert island, I haven't seen a human being for years

The house where we used to live 
Described by witnesses
TV crews arrive on the scene
& the anchorman they break down and weep 
Living proof that things are not what they seem
It takes all these wild and wonderful things -
To set me free
