This sentence "Things the way they were" is part of the song "I See the Light" which is from the movie Rapunzel.
All those years living in a blur
All that time never truly seeing
Things the way they were
I am not sure how to connect the second sentence and the third sentence. I think 'All that time' is like the subject and 'never truly seeing' is like the verb, so what follows after the verb should be the object. I think there are two possibilities.
- "Things" and "the way they were" are two objects.
- "Things" and "the way they were" are the same thing.
Are either of the above two possibilities right?
