Oh it changed
Over night and over time
It fizzed and fizzled out
So I changed my mind

I warned you
About my capricious mind
I warned you
Was honest
But still you crossed the line

Overnight and over time
It fizzed and fizzled out
So I changed my mind
My mind...

It won't be long 'til cracks appear
When you've replaced it all
And since I've known
And fallen ill to fear
I just can't let it go
Switch between
Another great idea
And an all time low
Manifesting underneath the skin
I wait to hear it call

I was acting how you wanted
It was easy what you wanted
When you're carefree and you're shunted
There isn't much left that's all that daunting

Then you wake up from a real dream
It doesn't take much to be a real tease
But the changes you created
They remain here you've got to face them

You act surprised
I said we're out of time
Your boorish lines
Caused my hope to die

I thought I needed
What you were begging to believe in
But the magic disappeared quick
So I changed it back again

Your mundane arrangement
Had me crying out for some clarity
So asphyxiating
When you push so hard for what you want this to be
You don't even scratch the surface
When you look inside to find there's nothing to see
And you'll never escape
This void of boundless opportunity

You were bound to me
An opportunity
That I couldn't find
So I changed my mind

My mind
My time
