Lyrics

Why Did You Never Believe Me?
(Words and music by Allan Dawson)

You're looking through your halo,
Trying to find compassion in your nightmares.
You're looking through your window,
Trying to find a lesson in your losses.

Don't you think you ought to let yourself,
Open up to what you've left unsaid?

Why did you never believe me?
I only said we'd land on the moon.
Why did you never believe me,
When I said that I'd still love you when I'm famous?

You're trying to find guidance,
In a joke book you found scattered in the ashes.
You're living to a scripted plot that someone,
Wrote before your life existed.

Don't you think you ought to let yourself,
Open up to what you've left unsaid?

Why did you never believe me?
I only said we'd land on the moon.
Why did you never believe me?
I only said we'd land on the moon.
Why did you never believe me,
When I said that I'd still love you when I'm famous?

You're looking down the column for an easy life,
You want to let your legs go, honey, but your hands are tied.
You're searching for the memories of a place you've never seen,
You're looking for the key to your release.

Why did you never believe me?
I only said we'd land on the moon.
Why did you never believe me?
I only said we'd land on the moon.
Why did you never believe me,
When I said that I'd still love you when I'm famous?

Why did you never believe me?
I only said we'd land on the moon.
Why did you never believe me?
I only said we'd land on the moon.
Why did you never believe me,
When I said that I'd still love you when I'm famous?
