Original video
We lived in a world of beautyful lies
Where you're fool enough to think you're wise
Feeling so sure
Love will endure
Like a shining star against the night
We saw love as clear as black and white

We looked to a dream to carry us through
But that's more than dreams will ever do
Promises made
Easily fade
And there's nothing left to do or say
We just close the door and walk away

'Cause in real life
It's never what it seems
In real life
We struggle in between
The hard truth
And the promise of a dream
In real life
Oh, it's never what it seems
In real life
Oh, in real life

Now, I've seen the light and you know the score
Love can't blind us like it did before
Swear we won't make
The same old mistake
But no matter how we try to be
We're just seeing what we want to see

And in real life
It's never what it seems
In real life
We struggle in between
The hard truth
And the promise of a dream
In real life
Oh, it's never what it seems
In real life
Oh, in real life

In real life
It's never what it seems
In real life
We struggle in between
The hard truth
And the promise of a dream
In real life
Oh, it's never what it seems
In real life
Oh, in real life

'Cause in real life
It's never what it seems
In real life
We struggle in between
The hard truth
And the promise of a dream
In real life
Oh, it's never what it seems
I real life
Oh, in real life
