lyrics

It would be okay by me
If you were to wake up from your sleeping
Living in a world of dreams
Open up your eyes and you could see them

We built a tower up so high
Beautiful so all the world could see it
Thought that we could touch the sky
But it’s falling
We’re falling

Everybody’s got a dream
That we’re trying to hold on to
Maybe things aren’t what they seem
And it slips right through our fingers

Everything went up in flames
Leaving only skeletons of what was
Maybe it was all in vain
And always was
It always was 

Everybody’s got a dream
That we’re trying to hold on to
Maybe things aren’t what they seem
And it slips right through our fingers

And all the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put it back together 
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put it back together again

It would be okay by me
If you were to wake up from your sleeping
Living in a world of dreams
Open up your eyes and you could see them    

Everybody’s got a dream
That we’re trying to hold on to
Maybe things aren’t what they seem
And it slips right through our fingers
