Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need no carryin' on

You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don't need no carryin' on

You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind

(Oh.. Holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong

And I'm not wrong
So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
