wrote the chorus for no apparent reason, thought it was pretty, wrote in some verses

lyrics

V1:
The sun shines brightly in the sky
And I ask myself why
I'm not a bird so I could learn to fly
And the world seems so clear to me now
When hopeful youth is gone colors fade out
I remember a time I thought I'd overcome my greatest doubts

Chorus:
When I believed that my wildest dreams would come true
When I could see forever when I looked at you
When I thought that Love would be all we need
But optimism is a prison to me

V2:
When you realize that life's a tougher crowd than you though it would be
And you're forced to make peace with reality
And my life's not a story book by any means
But singing melancholy melodies
Won't get me where I truly need to be
I'm sorry I can't be all you dreamed I'd be

(Chorus)

Bridge:
When faith was endless when hard work was repaid
When trust seemed worth it, mistakes were seldom made
And I'm my toughest critic, Why don't I believe anymore?
God doesn't seem forgiving
When all he does is close another door

(Chorus)
