  • There we were now here we are
    All this confusion nothing's the same to me
    There we were now here we are
    All this confusion nothing's the same to me

    I can't tell you the way I feel
    Because the way I feel is oh so new to me
    I can't sell you the way I feel
    Because the way I feel is oh so new to me

    What I heard is not what I hear
    I can see the signs but they're not very clear
    What I heard is not what I hear
    I can see the signs but they're not very clear

    So I can't tell you the way I feel
    Because the way I feel is oh so new to me
    I can't sell you the way I feel
    Because the way I feel is oh so new to me

    This is confusion am I confusing you?
    This is confusion am I confusing you?
    This is confusion we don't want to feel you
    This is confusion we don't want to feel you
