i spent my evening staring at your lips thinking of the little things before you that i missed and now i’m wondering where all this could go i’m not the type to give up on perfection, so you know now you know i missed you for the first time yesterday i fought the urge to call you up, i knew not what to say the weight of your head rests upon my mind and thankfully, i can’t believe i get to call you mine i get to call you mine for just tonight now all my clothes have your scent on the sleeve you’re holding tighter very time i say i’ve got to leave and i can’t say i mind your stare at all so lose your grip and watch me slip into you as we fall as we fall as we fall as we fall down we’ll fall do you ever start thinking of my heart cause you’re in my head knew it from the start rip it all apart and back again pay no mind to old news take your time, i’ll talk to you are quite the woman i am glad i found you

these nights i lie awake i’m thinking if we’ll fall asleep in our home these days i lay my head on two hands dreaming of taking of i don’t want some other love even if this isn’t what i’ve been dreaming of you walk ahead, i’m looking up there’s enough, there’s enough there’s enough, there’s enough there’s enough looking up for us both these lies i find are not worth thinking these nights fall asleep on our own these days i lay my head on two hands dreaming of taking off to see the world will we get old will you go with me i don’t want some other love even if this isn’t what i’ve been dreaming of you walk ahead, i’m looking up there’s enough, there’s enough there’s enough, there’s enough there’s enough looking up for us both

do you want to fall do you want to fly if you heard me call would you run into the light i would risk it all know just what i’m doing lay it on the floor let you take your time there’s nothing i know more than i want it to be you that i’m calling mine here comes the rain here comes the fall here comes the pain are you with me through it all there’ll be days like this i’ll be by your side share another kiss share what’s on your mind see what’s on my chest know just what i’m doing i’ll give you my best let you take your time there’s nothing i know more than i want it to be you that i’m calling mine here comes the rain here comes the fall here comes the pain are you with me through it all

oh she’s a little crazy all i hear is “maybe i don’t know” oh i’ve been thinking lately now she’s not my baby i gotta go cause if she can’t see what she means to me i’m screwed i’m a fantasy that you can’t believe and i’m screwed oh talk about a good dream i thought we made a good team despite it all oh i guess it’s not what you need there’s more to this than it seems but we’ll never know cause maybe i’m naive but i just can’t leave so i’m screwed i’m a fantasy that you can’t believe and you’re screwed i’m a fantasy that you can’t believe and i’m screwed but if reality is less than what you dream then you’re screwed

and i said i’ve had enough of missing you found out you’re missing me i’ve got enough of love for two that no one will ever see but you are the only one i know has any hold on me yeah you are the only one i know but i just can’t believe that you’re gone now when you’re still here somehow ain’t that messed up what the hell hello to the other side of this beautiful don’t you think we’re done with the bouts of ignorance you’ll bliss out if you blink cause you are the one the one i know you got it bad for me yeah you are the one the one i know but i just can’t believe that you’re gone now when you’re still here somehow ain’t that messed up what the hell were you thinking what were you drinking this got so messed up what the hell

i fell on my knees you wouldn’t believe i’ve given my heart up so many times before i put so much faith in what i can’t change the love that we claimed just couldn’t last forever i made my mistakes there’s things i can’t change maybe i’m to blame but i’ve been getting better a city may fall the curtain the call the glimmer the sparks burn from the heat of it all and i’m praying for change cause i just can’t take this on my own the love that we claimed the battles we faced the burden of fate it was always the same but all this will fade the light of the day takes all this to trade for what could last forever oh will this last forever who knows
10.
all it takes is a moment of this you’ll find that you’re looking for things that you missed from the start is it hard i’m fine with this breaking apart cause i know that i gave it a shot and you shot it down there’s nothing quite the same truth be told i can’t complain there’s so much we can do better me better you i’m fine with this breaking apart cause i know that you gave it a shot now i’m not around i’m not around no keeping you down when i’m not around chase me down show me there’s a reason we should float instead of drown love, please see all you gave to fix the broken man inside of me chase me down there’s a reason you and me can fly instead of drown love, i see every second led to this and all is meant to be
