Well I wish every day was a Friday night
With a long weekend straight ahead
And we all lived in shining castles
And there was no such word as dead
But reality's harsh and we're all going to die
No one's come back lately to tell us otherwise
So grin and bear it and enjoy what you can
Cause too many castles are built out of sand
And there's never enough to go around anyway
I'm far and away You spend so many nights wishing on a star
Til a cold wind reminds you that you're just right where you are
You try to avoid it, focus on what's real
But when the dollar is king, it's hard not to kneel
And we all live life wanting more and more
Everyone's a player and everyone keeps score

And television with one-way vision
Shows you all the things that you haven't got
I'm far and away
You can't sound the retreat
When it's out in the street
It's all around you, it's everywhere you go
