lyrics

It must be the season
There must be a reason
That my days have started
Dressing up like nights

There must be some feeling
That needs some appeasing
When the moon becomes
A cruel excuse for daylight


Well, sometimes you’re up
And sometimes you’re down
But never without one foot on the ground

While I’m like the leaves
That fall from these trees
And never, never make a sound

Well, I lost my crown
On the way down
Then I took a deep breath
And I looked around

This life is just a game of
Hide and seek
And I am never found


Wouldn’t you know it
The long-winded poet
Is running out of things to say

Cause I thought I’d never
Sing songs about the weather
Never thought my life could be reduced
To some sad cliché

But when you wake up in the morning
And the wind’s like a warning
That keeps telling you
“You’ll never win”




As long as the breeze blows behind me
Hope is gonna find me
Cause it’s searching for the ending
That taught me to begin


Well, sometimes I’m up
And sometimes I’m down
But never without both feet on the ground

While your sense of peace
Can never be released
Since your life
And your love
Have both been drowned

You’ll lose your crown
On the way down
When you take a deep breath and find
There’s no one around

This life was just a game of
Hide and seek
And you were never found
