  • I saw the bottom
    Felt a sinking feeling
    She fed me words
    She wasn’t even thinking
    On & on, say nothing's wrong again

    Held up, repeating all our lines, fake blue skies
    Painted a picture out of words, turned white lies
    On & on tell me nothing's wrong again
    Nothing’s wrong again

    Too close to know, we were playing fiction
    Living in a distant daydream
    Too close to know, everything was fading
    Water we could wade in got too deep
    To stand found out firsthand that I was
    Too close to know, we were playing fiction
    Living in a distant daydream

    I know the script isn’t changing
    Although the person you play is
    Your role - the girl in the tower
    But your sweet tooth turned sour

    Wake me up, 'cause I’m lost in a daydream
    The truth, it cuts like an axe to an oak tree

    Too close to know, we were playing fiction
    Living in a distant daydream
    Too close to know, everything was fading
    Water we could wade in got too deep
    To stand found out firsthand that I was
    Too close to know, we were playing fiction
    Living in a distant daydream

    Wake me up, I’m lost in a daydream
    Truth, it cuts like an axe to an oak tree
    Wake me up, I’m lost in a daydream
    Too close to know, we were playing fiction
    Living in a distant daydream
    Too close to know, everything was fading

    Too close to know, we were playing fiction
    Living in a distant daydream
    Too close to know, everything was fading
    Water we could wade in got too deep
    To stand found out firsthand that I was
    Too close to know, we were playing fiction
