I see life through rose colored glasses
We're all the same
Both sinners and saints
No winners in the hateful game
You ask me to change
To rearrange my life
To fit your time
They see life through stained glass
When it's all blurry
So many different colors
Too many different shades
I'll stick to my rose tinted life
They want me to be...
But it hurts to change.
You see life through a grimy window
Tell me, how you see
With all spots and specks
How do you see with dirt
Hiding your eyes
No thanks, i like it
My way, rose to go.
But he sees life through a clear door
I wonder what that's like
To see what is there
Not what you'd want
He says I see life
How I please and
that doesn't make him happy.
So here I am, trying to make it clear
But the rose tint that
I spent my whole life
Surrounded by
Refuses to leave
What I wanted to believe
And he couldn't stay.
Now no matter what I do
All I happen to see
is a sad strange blue.
