Goodbye Alice In Wonderland Lyrics - Jewel

Review The Song (7)



[Verse 1:]
It's four in the afternoon
I'm on a flight leaving L.A.
Trying to think about my life
My youth scattered along the highway

Hotel rooms and headlights
I've made a living with a song
Guitar as my companion
Wanting desperately to belong

Fame is filled with spoiled children
We grow fat on fantasy
I guess that's why I'm leaving
I crave reality

[Chorus 1:]
So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
sponsored links
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
I did not find paradise
It was only a reflection of my lonely mind wanting
What's been missing in my life

[Verse 2:]
I'm embarassed to say the rest is a rock and roll cliche
I hit the bottom when I reached the top
But I never knew it was you who was breaking my heart
I thought you had to love me
But you did not

Yes a heart can hallucinate
If it's completely starved for love
It can even turn monsters into
Angels from above

You forged my love just like a weapon
And you turned it against me like a knife
You broke my last heartstring
You opened up my eyes

[Chorus 2:]
So goodbye Alice in Wonderland
Goodbye yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
That was not love in your eyes
It was only a reflection of my lonely mind searching
what was missing in my life

[Bridge:]
Growing up is not an absence of dreaming
It's being able to understand the difference between the ones you can hold
And the ones that you've been sold
And Dreaming is a good thing cause it brings new things to life
But pretending is an ending that perpetuates a lie
Forgetting what you are
Seeing for what you've been told

[Verse 3:]
Ohh truth is stranger than fiction
This is my chance to get it right
And life is much better without all of those pretty lies

[Chorus 3:]
Ohh So Goodbye Alice in Wonderland
And you can keep your yellow brick road
There is a difference between dreaming and pretending
These are not tears in my eyes
They are only a reflection of my lonely mind finding
They are only a reflection of my lonely mind finding
I found what's missing in my life

a piece of Jewel. | Reviewer: josiel | 8/4/14

For me Jewel is by far the best singer in the world, in all her songs you can feel her soul in the lyrics, her voice is awesome, she's very dynamic too. Goodbye alice in wonderland is a truly work of art, a biographical ballad where Jewel shows her visions about finding ourselves in a life full of lies, it inspires us to look for things that really matter in our life. Thanks Jewel for sharing with us words of wisdom.

interesting fact | Reviewer: krissy | 11/4/08

I'm sitting here watching "Jewel: The Essential Live Songbook" (which I HIGHLY recommend) and she states that this song is an autobiography of sorts and that she's actually quite embarrased to sing it live. That made me look at it in a different way. Just thought I would share!

Song Review | Reviewer: Kalaydea | 5/19/07

"Goodbye Alice in Wonderland" is a wonderful song. However I don't understand why it is called "Goodbye Alice in Wonderland" when she says "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" as in "The Wizard of Oz".
