Lyrics

There she goes
Well how could she leave me?
Doesn't she need me?
She was never really there
Feels so cold
Oh what a shame now
There's no one to blame now
It's the world that isn't fair

In real life
People say one thing, then they do another
In real life
They break the tender heart of an innocent lover
Now and then
No big surprise
It happens all the time in real life

In my dreams she stands in the moonlight
She looks into my eyes
And tells me she will stay
One more night
Spend it together
Pretend it's forever, but it never works that way

In real life
People say one thing and then they do another
In real life
They break the tender heart of an innocent lover
Now and then
No big surprise
It happens all the time in real life

Why can't I learn my lesson?
I must be a little bit slow
Why must I always be the first to cry and the last to know?

It happens all the time in real life
