Maybe Next Time
by Sharon
There you are again going down to your sea
Hoping for validation to what you've been tellin' me
If the truth is the truth and that's what you're all about
The ending's the same you'll leave us no doubt

You're back in the spotlight, where you think you belong
Leather pants, that shy smile, how could it ever be wrong?
Weeks turn into months as our lives keep us far apart
Maybe next time you'll take the time and listen to your heart

I read about your deep thoughts, it's all over the press
"Rock star makes crude comment", you think it's all in jest
A pretty blonde starlet, smiles as she rides on your arm 
This perfect picture was shattered as you sensed the alarm 

You wanted it all back, after she turned and walked away 
Words said can't be forgotten, you must live with to this day
The pain you feel comes out in song, for everyone to sing
Words that once meant so much to you, now don't mean a thing

Do you ever wish you were someone else, laughing at this all?
I watch you strut your confidence, then push them to the wall
I hear you say you've changed and you'll never let her go
Are you really what we see or someone we can never truly know?

When you're all alone sometime, reliving your life in your mind
Has it ever occurred to you the people touched by Third Eye Blind?
Others love to hate you, that's easy for us to defend
You've taught the lesson to stand your ground and never ever bend

There you are again going down to your sea
Hoping for validation to what you've been tellin' me
If the truth is the truth and that's what you're all about
The ending's the same you'll leave us no doubt
