Benny Lava

Your vision is perfect
Mine has been corrected
But the end result is the same
Or so they say
One day you'll see like I do
The rings and flashes on the streetlights
At night, passing by
And you'll know why I can't sleep
Until the world's gone hazy

But you'll never understand the world I see
I'll never understand the one you're part of
Here between our hands we meet - one moment -
Are you thinking what I'm thinking
Likely the answer is no

I come from an island
You from the wide open plains
But you understand the things I say
In your own way
One day you'll have to ride off
Into the sunset, and I'll go back to my books
You'll have your memories
I'll have mine, and I'll never be the same
Because they'll never be the same

You know, we could try
Live in sync, bridge the gap,
Match your mind to mine
But these words don't make sense
My loony bun is fine
We're running out of time

You'll never understand the world I see
I'll never understand the one you're part of
Here between our hands we meet - one moment -
Are you thinking what I'm thinking
Likely the answer is no
