Lyrics You Should Know: “Is It Any Wonder”


by Keane
from the 2006 album “Under The Iron Sea”

I always thought that I knew
I’d always have the right to
Be living in the kingdom of the good and true
and so on

But now I think how I was wrong
And you were laughing along
And now I look a fool for thinking you were on my side

Is it any wonder I’m tired
Is it any wonder that I feel uptight
Is it any wonder I don’t know what’s right

Sometimes
It’s hard to know where I stand
It’s hard to know where I am
Well maybe it’s a puzzle I don’t understand

But sometimes
I get the feeling that I’m
Stranded in the wrong time
Where love is just a lyric in a children’s rhyme, a soundbite

Is it any wonder that I’m tired
Is it any wonder that I feel uptight
Is it any wonder I don’t know what’s right
oh, these days

After all the misery you made
Is it any wonder that I feel afraid
Is it any wonder that I feel betrayed

Nothing left inside this old cathedral
Just the sad lonely spires
How do you make it right

Oh, but you try
Is it any wonder I’m tired
Is it any wonder that I feel uptight
Is it any wonder I don’t know what’s right
oh, these days
After all the misery you made
Is it any wonder that I feel afraid
Is it any wonder that I feel betrayed
