Goodbye Alice In Wonderland

Goodbye Alice In Wonderland
    by Jewel Kilcher


Its four in the afternoon
I'm on a flight leaving LA
Trying to figure out my life
My youth scattered along the highway

Hotel rooms in headlights
I've made a living with a song
Just a guitar as my companion
Wanting desperately to be loved

Fame is filled with spoiled children
They grow fat on fantasy
I guess that's why I'm leaving
I crave reality

So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
I did not find paradise
It was only a reflection
Of my lonely mind wanting
What's been missing in my life

I'm embarassed to say
The rest is a rock and roll cliche
I hit the bottom when i reached the top
But I never knew it was you
Who was breaking my heart
I thought you had to love me
But you did not

Yes, a heart can hallucinate
If its completely starved of love
Can even turn monsters into
Angels from above

Forged my love just like a weapon
And you turned it against me like a knife
Broke my last heart string
But you opened up my eyes

So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
That was not love in your eyes
It was only a reflection
Of my lonely mind searching
For what's been missing in my life

And growing up is not an absence of dreaming
It's being able to understand the difference between
The ones you can hold and the ones that you've been sold

And dreaming is a good thing
Cause it brings new things to life
But pretending is an ending
That perpetuates a lie
Forgetting what you are
Seeing for what you've been told
And growing up is not the answer to dreaming
Its being able to understand the difference between
The ones you can hold and the ones that you've been sold

Truth is stranger than fiction
This is my chance to get it right
Life is much better
Without all of those pretty lies

So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
You can keep your yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
These are my tears in my eyes

They are only a reflection
Of my lonely mind finding

They are only a reflection
Of my lonely mind finding
I found what's missing in my life
