lyrics

If only you'd know me before I got so torn and grey.

Let's pretend that all is good, to hide deflect I knew I could.
But really I should look to be a better man than me.

My reality is killing me, so open up and share a million dreams that scream...
Just open eyes, look and blindly see.
I'm doing things the way I used to be/
Hey, Jump up in my Hummer! the rain is pouring down 'cos it's the start of the summer.
Hey, Jump up in my Hummer! the days are falling down 'cos it's the start of the summer.
