Goodbye Alice In Wonderland by Jewel Kilcher Its four in the afternoon I'm on a flight leaving LA Trying to figure out my life My youth scattered along the highway Hotel rooms in headlights I've made a living with a song Just a guitar as my companion Wanting desperately to be loved Fame is filled with spoiled children They grow fat on fantasy I guess that's why I'm leaving I crave reality So goodbye Alice in Wonderland Goodbye yellow brick road There is a difference between dreaming and pretending I did not find paradise It was only a reflection Of my lonely mind wanting What's been missing in my life I'm embarassed to say The rest is a rock and roll cliche I hit the bottom when i reached the top But I never knew it was you Who was breaking my heart I thought you had to love me But you did not Yes, a heart can hallucinate If its completely starved of love Can even turn monsters into Angels from above Forged my love just like a weapon And you turned it against me like a knife Broke my last heart string But you opened up my eyes So goodbye Alice in Wonderland Goodbye yellow brick road There is a difference between dreaming and pretending That was not love in your eyes It was only a reflection Of my lonely mind searching For what's been missing in my life And growing up is not an absence of dreaming It's being able to understand the difference between The ones you can hold and the ones that you've been sold And dreaming is a good thing Cause it brings new things to life But pretending is an ending That perpetuates a lie Forgetting what you are Seeing for what you've been told And growing up is not the answer to dreaming Its being able to understand the difference between The ones you can hold and the ones that you've been sold Truth is stranger than fiction This is my chance to get it right Life is much better Without all of those pretty lies So goodbye Alice in Wonderland You can keep your yellow brick road There is a difference between dreaming and pretending These are my tears in my eyes They are only a reflection Of my lonely mind finding They are only a reflection Of my lonely mind finding I found what's missing in my life
