"Goodbye Alice In Wonderland" lyrics

Goodbye Alice In Wonderland

It's four in the afternoon
I'm on a flight leaving LA
Trying to think about my life
My youth scattered along the highway

Hotel rooms and headlights
I've made a living with a song
Guitar as my companion
Wanting desperately to belong

Fame is filled with spoiled children
We grow fat on fantasy
I guess that's why I'm leaving
I crave reality

So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between
Dreaming and pretending
I did not find paradise
It was only a reflection
Of my lonely mind wanting
What's been missing in my life

I'm embarassed to say the rest
Is a rock and roll cliche
I hit the bottom
When I reached the top
But I never knew it was you
Who was breaking my heart
I thought you had to love me
But you did not

Yes a heart can hallucinate
If it's completely starved for love
It can even turn monsters into
Angels from above

You forged my love just like a weapon
And you turned it against me like a knife
You broke my last heartstring
You opened up my eyes

So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between
Dreaming and pretending
That was not love in your eyes
It was only a reflection
Of my lonely mind searching
What's been missing in my life

Growing up is not an absence of dreaming
It's being able to understand
The difference between the ones you can hold
And the ones that you've been sold
And dreaming is a good thing
Cause it brings new things to life
But pretending is an ending
That perpetuates a lie
Forgetting what you are
Seeing for what you've been told

Oh truth is stranger than fiction
This is my chance to get it right
And life is much better
Without all of those pretty lies

Oh so goodbye Alice in Wonderland
And you can keep your yellow brick road
There is a difference between
Dreaming and pretending
These are not tears in my eyes
They are only a reflection
Of my lonely mind finding
They are only a reflection
Of my lonely mind finding
I found what's missing in my life
