Lyrics:
well I hope you’ve changed
you’ve had time to grow
like the seeds in the back yard
our love died in the cold

pray some day
we just won’t need them
waking up Paralysed
just repeat once more

the wife screams (I can change)
you can’t change him
pretty lady we’ve all been here before

crying on the big screen
Remembering everything
You did to me

well I hope you’ve changed
you’ve had time to grow
like the seeds in the back yard
our love has grown cold cold

never had a moment we’d both laugh
at My expense and then you’d retract
chasing dreams
in my head
i hope you’re hearing this
i hope it makes sense

crying on the big screen
remembering everything
you did to me

just lie to my face it was years ago
taken it all cos you lost control
and now
i’m crying on the big screen

keep holding on to it
destroyed innocence in me
just keep holding on to it
can’t just let go of it

never had a moment we’d both laugh
at my expense and then you’d retract
chasing dreams
in my head

crying on the big screen
remembering everything
you did to me
