  • Oh, my life
    Is changing every day
    In every possible way

    And oh, my dreams
    It's never quite as it seems
    Never quite as it seems

    I know I've felt like this before
    But now I'm feeling it even more
    Because it came from you

    Then I open up and see
    The person falling here is me
    A different way to be

    Ah, la-la
    La-la-la
    La-la, la

    I want more
    Impossible to ignore
    Impossible to ignore

    They'll come true
    Impossible not to do
    Impossible not to do

    Now I tell you openly
    You have my heart so don't hurt me
    You're what I couldn't find

    A totally amazing mind
    So understanding and so kind
    You're everything to me

    Oh, my life
    Is changing every day
    In every possible way

    And oh, my dreams
    It's never quite as it seems
    'Cause you're a dream to me
    Dream to me Writer/s: Dolores Mary O'Riordan, Noel Anthony Hogan
