  • Lyrics: In the middle of the room you were huddled in a chair & you dropped a little smile that vanished in the air and in that moment I could see with the vision of a fool how often we mistake something shiny for a jewel It's the unfortunate truth that found us at last the unfortunate truth There is no way to undo the unfortunate truth I bought a silver frame for the picture in my head but the idea was too big and the colors ran and bled We never really fit in a perfect little square You worship on the ground & I worship in the air It's the unfortunate truth... Now I'm standing in a world where everything is new I can see a hundred miles and still no trace of you The sun is coming up and I'm standing on the sky but when you're right where you belong it doesn't matter why It's the unfortunate truth
