Clearer Eyes

We had good times
In the past
Now that's over
Could not last

Say what you want
Do what you want
Take what you want from me
This was not meant to be

But I thought we were good friends
I thought you were true
I thought all my feelings
Made it through to you
Now I see with perfect eyes
What you want from me
All you want is to be set free

What to do now
I don't know
You can't hear me
I can show

Tell everyone
You never cared
You never trusted me
Everyone will believe

But I thought we were good friends
I thought you were true
I thought all my feelings
Made it through to you
Now I see with perfect eyes
What you want from me
All you want is to be set free

Say what you want
Do what you want
Take what you want from me
This was not meant to be

I thought we were good friends
I thought you were true
I thought all my feelings
Made it through to you
Now I see with perfect eyes
What you want from me
You only want to be set free
You only want to be set free
You only want to be set free

Clearer Eyes (Love Is an Illusion)

We had good times
In the past
Now that's over
Could not last

It's not the same
Can you explain
How did it come to this?
How did we go amiss?

Love is an illusion
Changing everyday
Love is an illusion
Don't believe ...
Now I see with clearer eyes
What you want from me
What you want is to be set free

What to do now
I don't know
You can't hear me
I can show

Tell everyone
You never cared
You never trusted me
Everyone will believe

Love is an illusion
Changing everyday
Love is an illusion
...
Now I see with clearer eyes
What you want from me
What you want is to be set free

Tell everyone
You never cared
You never trusted me
Everyone will believe

Love is an illusion
Changing everyday
Love is an illusion
...
Now I see with clearer eyes
What you want from me
What you want is to be set free

Now I see with clearer eyes
What you want from me
What you want is to be set free
What you want is to be set free
