lyrics

You can’t see it from a plane
You can’t see it from a satellite
You can’t see it from a plane
You can’t see it from a satellite

But you and I both know it’s real, you and I both know it’s real

Do you remember when
We used to play out in the school yard?
Do you remember how
I’d make you laugh so ha-aaa--rrd

But you and I both know it’s real, you and I both know it’s real

Chorus: They don’t believe me, they don’t believe me when I say, that I want to be here, that I want to be here anyway (x2)

In retrospect it all makes sense
We gravitated to the sidelines
Always straddling that fence
We were never ones to make up our minds

But you and I both know it’s real, you and I both know it’s real

In retrospect it all makes sense
You looked so good in that bowtie
And you asked me what it meant
To tell a truth that was also a lie

And you and I both know it’s real, you and I both know it’s real

Chorus: They don’t believe me, they don’t believe me when I say, that I want to be here, that I want to be here anyway (x2)

Bridge: instrumental

Despite all the radiation
That our bodies endure
You can’t see it in the infra-red
Anymore than through the backroom door

But you and I both know it’s real, you and I both know it’s real

If there were another indication
Of those secrets you wear on your sleeve
It would be the explanations
That you provide as your cue to leave

And you and I both know it’s real, you and I both know it’s real

Chorus: They don’t believe me, they don’t believe me when I say, that I want to be here, that I want to be here anyway (x2)
