I think you know a way. A million times today. It’s not my fault I think? Like you I’ll hold it in. Feels so... Real when it’s.. Time to... Lay down with you. I’m higher... Then I’ve ever felt so... Take me with you. We got so high today. Our demons went away. Just for a sec or two. I fell in love with you.
2.
Like I Care 03:20
All of this sun bleaching my face. So hard to open up my eyes. I have been stuck inside this slump. Fixing my wings for now it’s... (safe) I’ve been a bad friend, ignored your calls. Hearing it ring I can’t wake up. Maybe I’ll call you back some day. Give me some time here won’t you? Can’t feel anything Not like I care. I don’t care about you. You’re not there when I wake up. I don’t care about you.
3.
And I want you. And I need to have you. And I need to have it all. I don’t like you. But I need to have you. And I need to fly so high. Never looking back. Sick of saving face. I took too much stuff. And I’m paying for it. The kindest hearts they feel the most pain. The kindest hearts they feel the most pain. Never ever coming down. Don’t look back.

Carry On 03:06
And I see all the lights. (Shine down on you) Don’t have anything to hide. (Or show you) Can i be the shining sun? (Keep you warm) Without love I’d rather die. (Close my eyes) Something’s changed inside your mind. Take it on. Carry on. All these thing will be alive. (And mould you) You have everything to hide. (I told you) Can I make it on my own? (Without you) Or just fade into the glow. (Be nothing) Carry On.
5.
I can see you coming. You ask if I can come down. I’ve been so lost, so sleepless. Re-arrange myself, I promise. I read your letters. They were something else. (Come) feel me tremble. On this ride back down. On this ride back down.... If you can see me now. When I’m lost it’s easy. I’ll never know if you’ll forgive me. I’ll make a pact with you forever. I come around sometimes. Like a fool.
6.
Running thru the ally isin’t. Running thru the anything. Right on past the breaker losing. Right on past the everything. Lost inside the hardest part of. Lost inside the anything. I can’t wrap my head around it. I can’t wrap my everything. Closes. Hide. My Eyes. Lead me on. When you wake up you’re still dreaming. When you wake up everything. Softly speaking as you’re holding. Softly speaking everything Glowing thru a sumbeam isin’t. Glowing thru my anything. I can’t wrap my head around it. I can’t wrap my everything. I can’t wrap my head around it. I can’t wrap my everything. Oooooh. Lead me on.
7.
Only One I 03:34
When I said that The only one I cherish here is you. All is felt when The only subtle movement is so true. Even when I Stare into your shifty pale blue eyes. It’s like dreaming. Lost into forever here with you. The only one I need to feel is you. So why am I... (alone?). Can you feel me? I’m so overwhelmed and broken down. Fall to pieces. Like a hundred billion stars that fall. Make it clearer. The only one I need to hear is you. On my way now. I’ll leave this lasting sentiment with you.
8.
I wouldn’t say that I’m so lost as you say but I.. Know that we will never be. I couldn’t say that You’re as fair as you pretend to.. Be. To. Me. For all I know I think so. I can say that I know where I’m going for a change. Without you it’s seamless. You can’t say that you don’t care about being so... Cool...To...Them... For All I Know I Think. And I don’t care cos’ Once upon a time I really cared Now I see you trying very hard to .. Fit in here. Never gonna be so cool. Never gonna see it thru.
9.
Just lie where you are. (The) sun hits your face. I can see myself in your skin. Running your hands. Thru my hair. I never thought that... You would care. You would be stronger Then I could be. I never felt so incomplete. You would be stronger Then I could be. I never felt so, so complete. You keep your words. To yourself. You make me feel. So complete.

It’s not fair. She’s everywhere. Softer eyes. Just like her skin. Realise. this is a dream. In my dreams. I break, I feel. The most I’ll ever know. Is what I’ve never seen. So you’re scared And safe alone. You won’t change the way you feel. I look up. Into this light. Sea to sky. It’s on our skin. The most I’ll ever know. Is what I’ll never see. Realise. The dream is real.
