Lyrics

   Hey
   I'm your life
   I'm the one who takes you there

   Hey
   I'm your life
   I'm the one who cares

   They
   They betray
   I'm your only true friend now

   They
   They'll betray
   I'm forever there

   I'm your dream, make you real
   I'm your eyes when you must steal
   I'm your pain when you can't feel
   Sad but true

   I'm your dream, mind astray
   I'm your eyes while you're away
   I'm your pain while you repay
   You know it's sad but true
   Sad but true

   You
   You're my mask
   You're my cover, my shelter

   You
   You're my mask
   You're the one who's blamed

   Do
   Do my work
   Do my dirty work, scapegoat

   Do
   Do my deeds
   For you're the one who's shamed

   I'm your dream, make you real
   I'm your eyes when you must steal
   I'm your pain when you can't feel
   Sad but true

   I'm your dream, mind astray
   I'm your eyes while you're away
   I'm your pain while you repay
   You know it's sad but true
   Sad but true

   I'm your dream
   I'm your eyes
   I'm your pain

   I'm your dream (I'm your dream)
   I'm your eyes (I'm your eyes)
   I'm your pain (I'm your pain)
   You know it's sad but true

   Hate
   I'm your hate
   I'm your hate when you want love

   Pay
   Pay the price
   Pay, for nothing's fair

   Hey
   I'm your life
   I'm the one who took you there

   Hey
   I'm your life
   And I no longer care

   I'm your dream, make you real
   I'm your eyes when you must steal
   I'm your pain when you can't feel
   Sad but true

   I'm your truth, telling lies
   I'm your reason, alibis
   I'm inside, open your eyes
   I'm you
   Sad but true
