Jane :
The little thoughts came rushing in
While I watched for a sign from him
When all the while was clear as day
That I should go and he should stay

Feist :
I look his love like it was mine
I squeezed the truth until it lied
It took some time for cracks to show
Should I stay or should he go?

Jane :
The simple story that you told me
Is a little different from what you showed me
The simple story, unfurling slowly
Is if you lay down with a dream
You'll wake up lonely

Feist :
The fog will cast a certain shade
So what you see is how what's made
it's mark will show you what to do
When hope pretends it's made you new
Love lied love lied but I'm the reason
Love lied

Jane :
The simple story that you told me
Is a little different from what you showed me

Feist :
The sky wraps round the mountaintops

Jane :
The watch unwinds until it stops
Some things will always be the way they are

Feist :
And that is how they'll stay

Jane :
The simple story that you told me
Is a little different from what you showed me
The simple story, unfurling slowly
Is if you lay down with a dream
You'll wake up lonely
