lyrics

I've been thinking lately
That all my thoughts are wrong
That my head is full of nonsense
A sense I don't belong
All the voices keep on talking
But they don't say a thing to me
I'm staring at the door again
Like a window by the sea
Like a window by the sea

And it's time to pay the waitress
And I've never felt more broke
My wallet's full of credit cards
And receipts for things I hoped
Would make me feel like someone else
Or a little more alive
I'm a deadman walking on diamond soles
With a heart of twisted twine

It's a shame that the truth's inconvenient
It's a pain that your heart has to break before it mends
Every cloud in the sky in the shape of a sign
Every song that I hear brings a tear to my eye
And the bend in the road is alright

All the streets are filled with people
Filled with things they'll never say
Rushing here and there, it's a sad affair
A life that's lived will pay
But the wage you get is the thing you've earned
Not the thing that you might want
Every day is a drop in the sea of hope
Every word just floats or stops


It's a shame that the truth's inconvenient
It's a pain that your heart has to break before it mends
Every cloud in the sky in the shape of a sign
Every song that I hear brings a tear to my eye
And the bend in the road is alright

I'm a slave to every feeling
But the joke is that I'm free
I'm a cause that's lost, I'm an astronaut
Stuck on earth with rocket dreams
I'm the tight rope act at the carnival
And I'm scared to death I'll fall
The world is at my feet right now
I can't think of a soul to call

It's a shame that the truth's inconvenient
It's a pain that your heart has to break before it mends
Every cloud in the sky in the shape of a sign
Every song that I hear brings a tear to my eye
And the bend in the road is alright
And the bend in the road is alright
And the bend in the road is alright
