Life Goes On

A new sunrise
Lovers say their goodbyes
The day begins
Only fools confess their sins
We all know something’s wrong but life goes on

We obey the law
Of what’s been done before
Avoiding the fire
Of unspoken desire
We all know something’s wrong but life goes on

We may know the sweet taste of success
Know what it’s like to fail
Either way life comes down to a half-price sale

We all pursue
What we think is true
Then we realize
It’s all made of lies
We all know something’s wrong but life goes on

I have seen the curse of a famous father
Make your road a steeper climb
By the time you’d found the word he’d already found the rhyme

We play the clown
With all our defenses down
We play the fool
The game becomes the rule
We all know something’s wrong but life goes on
