lyrics

In Theory
(Markus Rill)

You’d think that I’d know better
than to keep banging on this old guitar
I sure know better than to think
that it’s ever gonna make me any dough
but nothing else can make me fly so high
or come crashing down this hard

well, I know, believe me, I know
that’s a whole lotta magic I won’t be letting go

I thought about it long and hard
and still feel the way I feel
blind passion may be not that smart
but I see all I need to see
my heart believes this dream’s as real
as anything I know in theory

Hey, and I ought to know better
than to hang my heart on hope
I sure know better
than to avoid facing the truth
Someday looking back I’ll have my share of regrets
and don’t think I don’t know

cause I do, believe me, I do
and that’s a whole lotta knowledge to live up to

I thought about it long and hard
and still feel the way I feel
blind passion may be not that smart
but I see all I need to see
my heart believes this dream’s as real
as anything I know in theory

What good’s theory anyway?
cause theoretically I’d let no opportunity
ever slip away
it’s only hypothetical after all
cause, man, sometimes I got no choice
when my heart makes the call

I thought about it long and hard
and still feel the way I feel
blind passion may be not that smart
but I see all I need to see
my heart believes this dream’s as real
as anything I know in theory
