Contradictions - Natalie Imbruglia

Seventeen years in a dead end job
Telling his dreams to a deaf eared God
Hanging on tight by a single thread
Praying for a change

Everything you could have sacrificed
Your flesh and blood had it's own sweet price
Baby's all grown up and moved away
Where's that leave you now

It was your own decision
You made my life your mission

Somebody tell me
(It doesn't make no sense at all)
Somebody tell me why we're living in a world of contradiction

Why is it so hard to be understood
Doing so much for the common good
Sorry if I didn't see the truth
The sadness in your eyes

I wanted to stand on my own two feet
Looking at life as a one way street
Thinking that I had it all worked out
Where's that leave me now

We lost communication
Too many expectations

Somebody tell me
(It doesn't make no sense at all)
Somebody tell me why we're living in a world of contradiction

Somebody tell me
(It doesn't make no sense at all)
Somebody tell me why we're living in a world of contradiction

Everything I have inside
I kept it wrapped up tight
All I know is
All I want to know is

Somebody tell me
(It doesn't make no sense at all)
Somebody tell me why we're living in a world of contradiction
In a world of contradiction

Seventeen years in a dead end job
Telling his dreams to a deaf eared God
Hanging on tight by a single thread
Where's that leave you now
