Acoustic #3 Lyrics

They painted up your secrets
With the lies they told to you
And the least they ever gave you
Was the most you ever knew

And I wonder where these dreams go
When the world gets in your way
What's the point in all this screaming
No one's...

    I think it reflects parents staying together for their child, despite losing their own dreams. When it mentions seeing right through you, seems like the child knows that her parents pretend for her sake.

    John wrote this song about his childhood. He said it at a concert I was at. At another concert he said, "One day this will have a happy ending."

    This song sounds very sad at first but its message is very powerful. Its a song about how you realize that what everyone told you is wrong. Everyone told you these "things" to make the world seem like a better place. Your dreams are not coming true like you had first hoped and no one is listening to your opinions anymore. The problems of the world/your life have gotten the best of you. But then people realize that your struggling and that you need help. But its to late....
