    Lyrics

    What if I told you it was done with mirrors
    What if I showed you it was all a lie
    Better be careful someone might hear ya
    The walls have ears and the sky has eyes.

    What if I said you were only dreamin'
    What you wanna bet that all you gotta do
    Is open up your eyes and you will wake up screamin'
    When you realize that it's all come true.

    Hush, now don't you believe it
    Cover your head and close your eyes
    Now take it or leave it
    Go back to bed now don't you cry.

    Half a million soldiers fly across the water
    One in ten are never comin' back again
    Fifty thousand sons who never grew to fathers
    Don't you ever wonder who they might have been
    What if you could have been there on that day in Dallas
    What if you could wrestle back the hands of time
    Maybe somethin' could've been done in Memphis
    We wouldn't be livin' in a dream that's died.

    Go on and tell yourself again there are no secrets
    Go on and tell yourself that you don't want to know
    It's best that you believe that you don't hear the footsteps
    That follow you around no matter where you go
    Maybe you were thinkin' that it didn't matter
    Maybe you believed that nobody else would care
    But once you've added every little lie together
    You finally find the truth was always waiting there.
