I’ve never seen such beautiful bright-blue skies
I know what you’re thinking
I’ve never wanted anything more than right
And I know why I’m leaving . . . because

I can’t make it work
I can’t play this game
I can’t make it change
It’s all just the same
I could never smile
I could never sing
I can’t move a mountain
I can’t be a king

I’ve never walked quite so beautiful a mile
I know what I’m missing
I’ve never had anything but love
And I know why I’m leaving . . . because
I’m leaving because I love
The shadows in the daytime

And

I can’t make it work
I can’t play this game
I can’t make it change
It’s all just the same
I could never smile
I could never sing
I can’t move a mountain
I can’t be a king
