Lyrics Edit

There's a change of heart

And you're in a race

And you don't know where it ends

In another world 

Where you're upside down

Trying to make amends

Whoa, I don't believe what I see and I hear

Whoa, I can't explain what is here but it's here


When the rain comes down

When the rain comes down

Time to start with a different face

I gotta get out of here

I'll take my chance in a different place

Now my mind is clear

Whoa, I don't believe what I see and I hear

Whoa, I can't explain what is here but it's here
