Somebody Said
All I know is this - once I knew so much, but now I don't
I was just a lonely kid in an innocent world
Now, every time I think that I've figured it out and set my sights
Some mighty joker sends me a mirror in hand
To reveal who I am

I had a strange and lonely dream
A movie of my wedding day
I was scared and she was a bride, so lovely
Somebody said the problem is
Boy, you're just too young for promises
I lived my life to those words ever since

Everywhere I go there are opening where I recognize
In every living soul, we are mostly the same
Funny, how one thought can just enter your mind and settle in
And start to rearrange your precarious world
Oh, the fabric unfurls

I had a strange and lonely dream
A movie of my wedding day
I was scared and she was a bride, so lovely
Somebody said the problem is
Boy, you're just too young for promises
I lived my life to those words ever since

Oh, then I lean outside my window
And I see another world I never knew
Through the longing and the worry
And I thank God I am living
Long enough to learn my own true heart
I am willing, I am waiting, oh

Last night I had a different dream
Where I wake up in my middle age
I'm still scared but I've got to turn another page
A lonely heart can start to heal
Stumble through your life, you finally will
I never thought I'd say those words myself

I had a strange and lonely dream
A movie of my wedding day
I was scared and she was a bride, so lovely
Somebody said the problem is
Boy, you're just too young for promises
I lived my life to those words ever since
