Shattered dreams

(Written by Daniel Bailey-Graham and Lynn Graham)

Brought up on broken promises
A thousand times I've tried
Nose pressed against the windowpane
To fathom why they lied

A carefree kid, a golden child
Starting life so sure
That everyone and everything
Would always be that pure

But how soon disappointment came
In every clever guise
I realised the sham of life
Reflected in my eyes

Shattered dreams
Shattered dreams
Promises never kept
Teardrops shed a thousand times
A thousand times I've wept
Crystal fragments
Sapphire blue
Cascades of silver tears
Waterfalls of love and hate
Down throughout the years

Sounds and smells of times of gone by
Echoes of distant years
Hazy memories
Summer nights
A lifetime's hopes and fears

Sitting here and gazing out
Through the looking-glass
Wondering how we came so far
With futures built on pasts

Shattered dreams
Shattered dreams
Promises never kept
Teardrops shed a thousand times
A thousand times I've wept
Crystal fragments
Sapphire blue
Cascades of silver tears
Waterfalls of love and hate
Down throughout the years

Please tell me what it's all about
What it's all been for
We live our lives
We love our lives

But still we quest for more
And in the end when life is done
And we're in our winter time
Tell me, was it worth it
Was life so very fine
Was life so very fine
Was life so very fine
