It looked like it
It felt like it
But in the end it was just a show
With good acting
Fine acting
Too bad the sponsers had to go
And you know who you are
Poor production
Poor direction
All the beautiful sad cliche’s
The sound was bad
I couldn’t hear you
But then what were we doing on the stage
And you know who you are
Oh yeah
Tell me if it feels like the key
Well it’s easy too easy
Cause when I saw you there
With your eyes in the air
Ahh
Everything we done we done before
Somehow it seemed to make a little more sense
It was such a close call I think that’s why I’m writing this at all
I’d call out your name loud
You really don’t think it would make any sense
Cause you know who you are
