Cycles of You
Joe Bataan Lyrics


In the morning, as I make my way down the sidewalk
I pass your doorstep on my way to a world with no pain
Do I see you as you smile at me through your window
In shades of blue, I turn away 'cause it's all in my mind

It's a world that I created
On the day that you moved on
All my suffering has been traded
For the lie that you're not gone
Things are always what they seem
But my whole world, just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream

Why not tell me
As you act if I should see you
Am I losing?
Or do I even have something to lose?
But you know me, I am someone who doesn't like changing
And I'm sorry, I don't think I could change anyway

People ask me what I'm doing
And I know it's not sincere
Watching my life turn to ruin
Just pretending you're still here
Am I slowly going blind?
My eyes are open, I can't see
I can't see
I can't see

In the evening, as I'm gazing at all of the rooftops
I start walking across all of them to get to you
And it haunts me, 'cause I know that you're out there somewhere
I call your name, but it doesn't make a difference now

In my hand I held a diamond
And I tossed up and down
Didn't pay it much attention
Till' it fell right through the ground
Who did I think I was fooling
It was merely only me
Only me
Only me

In the morning, as I make my way down the sidewalk
I pass your doorstep on my way to a world with no pain
Do I see you as you smile at me through your window
In shades of blue, I turn away ‘cause it’s all in my mind

It’s a world that I created
On the day that you moved on
All my suffering has been traded
For the lie that you're not gone
Things are always what they seem
But my whole world, just a dream
Just a dream (x2)

Why not tell me
As you act if I should see you
Am I losing?
Or do I even have something to lose?
But you know me, I am someone who doesn't like changing
And I’m sorry, I don’t think I could change anyway

People ask me what I’m doing
And I know it’s not sincere
Watching my life turn to ruin
Just pretending you're still here
Am I slowly going blind?
My eyes are open, I can’t see
I can’t see (x2)

In the evening, as I’m gazing at all of the rooftops
I start walking across all of them to get to you
And it haunts me, ‘cause I know that you're out there somewhere
I call your name, but it doesn’t make a difference now

In my hand I held a diamond
And I tossed up and down
Didn’t pay it much attention
Till’ it fell right through the ground
Who did I think I was fooling
It was merely only me
Only me (x2)
