Lyrics

We Live Imagination

Written By: Adrian James McPhee

VERSE 1

You can't use your eyes to see a future that will be
Yet the way we view the world sets our reality
Innocence is something we can't hold and touch on earth
But all of us have innocence inside of us at birth

The books we read, and the media consumed shape our lives and our love... our lives and our love
Since the inner and the physical are intertwined and one
What we believe is what we're destined to become

CHORUS

We Live Imagination
What we dream determines what will be
We Live Imagination
So picture the world as you'd have it be

VERSE 2

The thing about infinity, is there's enough reality
For everyone one of us to shape our own
From endless possibilities, we pull threads of opportunity
We can decide to weave the fabric of our lives

But with a passive existence, and a life of inhibitions
You believe and love just as you've been told

Since the inner and the physical are intertwined and one
What we believe is what we're destined to become

CHORUS

We Live Imagination
What we dream determines what will be
We Live Imagination
So picture the world as you'd have it be

BRIDGE

Your thoughts are the airflow from a butterfly's wings
They echo and multiply, as stormy clouds set in
On a field of colourblind dreams, will you set them free?

CHORUS / OUTRO

We Live Imagination (repeat)
What we dream determines what will be

How will you have it be?

Between Love and Lies

VERSE 1

They fell at the speed of sound, head on
To a love and world, they hoped could overcome
Everything they knew was wrong
But now, as the close becomes the distant
And love and tension mixes
Truth is lost, to breaking up and broken love

PRE-CHORUS

There's something that he should've said
Something made up in her head
Somewhere that they could've been
Something that he should have seen
Nothing that they have today, but memories put in the way
So for now they'll live their lives

CHORUS

Between Love and Lies
Between Love and Lies

VERSE 2

The sea devours every trace of their footsteps on the shore
But two hearts that separate don't forget the good times, just the poor
Can he live his life in colour, when shades of grey are in his dreams?
Should she count the steps behind her or accept her change of scene?
When...

PRE-CHORUS

There's something that he should've said
Something made up in her head
Somewhere that they could've been
Something that he should have seen
Nothing that they have today, but memories put in the way
So for now they'll live their lives

CHORUS

Between Love and Lies
Between Love and Lies

BRIDGE

The breaking bonds and twisted tangles, fuel the fears that say
I feel the same, I feel the same
And every smile that passes by
Shines a light on what's been lost in love and found in lies

PRE-CHORUS

There's something that he should've said
Something made up in her head
Somewhere that they could've been
Something that he should have seen
Nothing that they have today, but memories put in the way
So for now they'll live their lives

CHORUS

Between Love and Lies
Between Love and Lies
