Join me closer, I don’t care about ‘em It could be a sweet world If you could stop your looking, say (Why are you still afraid) But I’ve been trying so hard Just trying to get into your circle Open my head and edge your chest open (Is that a heart) It’s my way in Am I being too emotional You told me that things’ll be fine All it’s gonna take is a little bit of time, well hey (Look at the clock) It’s been a little while now All I wanted was a strong kinda love But it fell through when push came to shove, yeah (Why can’t you do this for me) That’s what I get For believing (That’s what I get for believing that it ain’t true) Oh that’s what I get For believing in you It’s just a matter of time For you and I To realize, we got nothing left to hold together now It’s just a matter of time Gotta look out for mine Sometimes that means leaving it all behind You keep me young babe, cryingIt’s what we had It’s what I’m needing (What do you do when a love affair is over) Oh that's what we had It’s up and leaving on my shoulder Even when I was young, wished that I was older (Might wanna watch the skies) Yeah if you’re looking for a full moon I can’t help with your vain resurrection You can’t breathe life into my dead affection (Wish that I could bring it back) Oh, oh I used to wish on a cosmic star Hoping I could sleep if I landed where you are now (You’re never in my dreams) Yeah I wanted it all better but Distance don’t make the heart grow fonder When we meet up, we’re still left to wonder (When’s this gonna end Kissing like it’s alright, playing pretend) It’s just a matter of time For you and I To realize, we got nothing left to hold together now It’s just a matter of time Gotta look out for mine Sometimes that means leaving it all behind

Reverie 04:05
Am I in my bed, Or someone else’s sheets instead? What will I regret? Did I grow old inside my head Because of all the things I said? This scene’ll pass The sunlight driving in too fast A glow that seems to last Blocks your face it’s overcast These pastel shades soon turn to ash All I remember is a flash It’s just late night activity Closed-eyelid creativity Visions that mean nothing But they’re everything to me Pretty sensible it seems A tourist in captivity Visions that mean nothing But they’re everything, Everything to me Have I been here before? The layout of the second floor Viewing deja decor, architecture I adore Visit once more at 24 The horizon’s high Reclined skyline From another time It still floods colours in my mind Here the strangest things collide Here the strangest things’ll shine It’s just late night activity Closed-eyelid creativity Visions that mean nothing But they’re everything to me Pretty sensible it seems A tourist in captivity Visions that mean nothing But they’re everything, Everything to me

Summer Daze 03:34
I wait through the cold Just to get a hint, get a glimpse That winter hurt so bad without your kiss yeah, and I can’t help these old Memories, you and me I’m burning with the hope I should dismiss Yeah yeah I’ve done my time, I’m in my prime And I want you The seasons change now let’s exchange A moment of truth Oh I was young and you were shy But now under these bright skies I’ve got a fantasy we should try This is the summer scene Sweatin' all soaked in gasoline and These are the summer days Watching you work hard from the shade yeah This is the summer sun Glowing hot halos you’re the one hey These are the summer ways C’mon baby let’s go back to your place Oh what can I do My head is now in the clouds Oh when I see your face in every crowd I can’t help my mind My imagination runs wild You got a full grown woman, acting like a child Yeah, yeah Your spell it turns and now i’ve learned That I want you You turn a realist to optimist That’s how you do Oh I am sweet and you are fine You got a smile that matches mine When you laugh it’s magic in your eyes This is the summer scene Sweatin' all soaked in gasoline and These are the summer days Watching you work hard from the shade yeah This is the summer sun Glowing hot halos you’re the one hey These are the summer ways C’mon baby let’s go back to your place C’mon baby let’s go back (HEY HEY) Leave behind this world regime (HEY HEY) Falling in love with a simple daydream (HEY HEY) You got something I’ve never seen Like an ode to youth and purity Or loss of what that used to mean Bring me back to a warmer breeze Come on show me what it means to be free This is the summer scene Sweatin' all soaked in gasoline and These are the summer days Watching you work hard from the shade yeah This is the summer sun Glowing hot halos you’re the one Oh, oh C’mon baby let’s go back to your place

I’m on the sidelines again Trying to fit my heart into my head Everyone that holds me is a lover, but they’re not a friend Before you I never knew the difference Still in hiding I’m in love with my imaginary man In my mind tithing To the memories he left to me They slip through my fingers like grains of sand A kind of apparition haunting me and He never even held my hand If you’re trying to forget me You got too much time on your hands In your late night frenzy Don’t you wanna see me again These days I don’t know if my heart is pumping absence of your love and caffeine Looking for new love is sorting unfamiliar faces like a machine I’m in the background again (Background again) Dodging in between the reverb Of her spacious head Every time I reminisce, I have to reprimand I know can’t see her here but, I never did see the end I hear her voice in the black And I’m in the love with an echo of the past I turn back To face a subtle breeze, musing tease I won’t even care about it think about it for today, yeah (Oh, oh) But tonight I’ll be wondering how to Get back what I never had If you’re trying to forget me You got too much time on your hands In your late night frenzy Don’t you wanna see me again These days my heart ain’t pumping all the numbing late nights, alcohol and caffeine Trying to keep old love is playing scenes rewind, repeat, just like a machine Yeah, yeah yeah yeah If you’re trying to forget me You got too much time on your hands (Too much time right on your hands, yeah) In your late night frenzy Don’t you wanna see me again (Dontchya, don’t you wanna see me again) These days my heart ain’t pumping all the numbing late nights, alcohol and caffeine Trying to keep old love is playing scenes rewind, repeat, just like a machine

Late Night 03:50
Don't bring me home It's been a long night And i'm not ready to face the sheets, yeah Don't bring me home I only came out On the chance that we would meet, and I'm not expecting anything 'Tween our eyes Except empty words if only we tried Still hiding the truth Our words how they soothe Hoping this is endless Do everything but still you Don't bring me home Don’t, don’t bring me home baby Don't bring me home Won't you won't you bring me home yeah Still feel alone Bet you're still feeling alone, baby Don't bring me home Won’t you, won’t you bring me home yeah Don't say goodbye It's getting real late To stop these words and rise Don't say goodbye Leave your coat And try me on for size I'm not expecting anything 'Tween our eyes Except empty words if only we tried Still hiding the truth Our words how they soothe Hoping this is endless Do anything but baby just Don't bring me home Don’t, don’t bring me home baby Don't bring me home Won't you won't you bring me home yeah Still feel alone Bet you're still feeling alone, baby Don't bring me home Won’t you, won’t you bring me home yeah And I still think about you in the black, eyeing cracks in the door Hoping for your Footsteps to come walking in Show me the original sin, I’ll show you how to begin, and I still think about you in the black, eyeing cracks in the door Hoping for your footsteps To come walking in Show me the original sin, I’ll tell you how to begin Think about you
