State Of Oblivion

STATE OF OBLIVION - Written by Carroll Bryant 


We meet
We exchange our pleasantries
We eat 
Our dinner and each other 
Next thing we know we are madly in love
Talking together about the future 
And then our past catches up to us 
Ignorance turns into clever 

If we ever reach the state of oblivion 
Will we only take the love that each of us has given?
And if we ever talk about our problems with somebody else
Would we ever stop to think that our love was merely an illusion?
We're playing in the state of our innocence 
We leave broken pieces in our wake
In the state of oblivion

We meet
We discuss our fatal dreams 
We stay
To touch each others bodies 
Next thing we know we're walking down the aisle
Anticipating memories 
That hide behind a honeymoon smile
Ignorance is bliss

If we ever reach the state of oblivion 
Will we only take the love that each of us has given?
And if we ever talk about our problems with somebody else
Would we ever stop to think that our love was merely an illusion?
We're playing in the state of our innocence 
We leave broken pieces in our wake
In the state of oblivion

You can be that little girl playing with your dolls 
I will be that little boy growing up on football 
A summer day
A baseball game
Drinking lemonade 
Playing doctor in the shade 

We meet
We disrupt our destiny
We seek
The power from each others heart 
Next thing we know we're growing old together
Living in the weather 
That brought us to said place and time 
Ignorance is left behind 

If we ever reach the state of oblivion 
Will we only take the love that each of us has given?
And if we ever talk about our problems with somebody else
Would we ever stop to think that our love was merely an illusion?
We're playing in the state of our innocence 
We leave broken pieces in our wake
In the state of oblivion

In the state of oblivion
We're living in the state of our oblivion

Too oblivious to understand
