A cover of a song by King Arthur

lyrics

Here is the problem -
The way I see you is
Colored by all the
Things we've been through.
Here is the problem -
The way you see me is
All about the things you
Think I did to you.

That's how a problem of
Perspective seems to work;
Gets in the way of love.
Once we think we've been hurt
We say we've had enough
We lose the will to trust;
That's what a problem of
Perspective does to us.

Love keeps no score of
Wrongs they tell me
But my eyes won't open and
My heart won't let go.
We make assumptions
Despite the things we see,
We deny the evidence
We trust what we thnk we know.

That's how a problem of
Perspective seems to work;
Gets in the way of love.
Once we think we've been hurt
We say we've had enough
We lose the will to trust;
That's what a problem of
Perspective does to us.

At least two sides to every story.
At least one truth for every lie.
The optimist afraid to disbelieve,
The pessimist afraid to try.

That's how a problem of
Perspective seems to work;
Gets in the way of love.
Once we think we've been hurt
We say we've had enough
We lose the will to trust;
That's what a problem of
Perspective does to us.
