I've rebuilt most of my life
Since you went away.
I'm always busy, me
Always round lots of friends
But they don't always see...

I've achieved a lot since then,
New path, new goals
But where I stumble and fall
Is rebuilding my dreams.

Brick follows brick,
How hard can it be
To believe the promises
Once spoken for me?
But they stick in my throat
And throat and taunt me.
Praise floats by as if for somebody else:
Not me now,
It couldn't be me now,
There's nothing left.

I've moved on and so have you,
Though I don't care to know;
The only way I'd see you now
Is on your bended knee
And that will never be.
I'm not out for revenge;
No, all I really want
Is peace of mind
And to believe again in love.

All dreamers know
That dreams can implode
And there's wreckage all around until the clean-up begins.
And then brick follows brick
Just give me time
To believe the promises
Once spoken for me.
Yes, me now
Look at me now
I'm ready to try.
Yes, me now
Look at me now
I'm ready to fly.
