i know i don't have to wait to hold you close until we say goodnight i like it when we talk for hours and then i finally look into your eyes it's not every day you get to share a piece of someone who you like only wish i have would be to get the chance to look into your eyes for the first time i don't feel the weight of all the weight so many people feel inside things are lighter now that i have finally come to rest along your side used to see the world so dimly like it was a figure in my mind but that's come and gone and i can safely say that it's another time it's another time where are we so far from eternity so far from certainty so far from the other side

all the letters that i wrote to you never made to the postman's hand all the times i could have followed through tried too hard to understand all the answers that have come to me never did 'cause i was serious all the good that i have seen so far never happened 'cause i tried so hard if you come alone step right in everyone is giving birth to something when you're feeling like you're in too deep you're still looking for the mountain pass can't be dreaming if you're not asleep gotta let it go, the night won't last the woods are dark but full of diamonds gotta go to fetch one out can't be riding on a smile can't ask no questions how you don't need a reason to let a good thing grow you can't bear it if i say so

well the room is on fire from the spark of a word and your hair ignites and all the colors disperse my breath, it feeds the fire and it smells of Trago and gasoline the sea of my heart turns from blue into black and I feel it getting hard to ever go back 'cause i've seen what's deeper in me and it is a black night spilling inside it's not a matter of will, it's a matter of time it's a bottomless pit that is full of bottomless crimes will you follow me down as far as you can it takes more than a dream it takes more than a man it takes everything I'm not and what you are to cover the scars

through the dark behind the back door there passes a stranger who travels unseen could've sworn he's been here before but i'm always unsure if it’s memory or dream winter falls back into place i'm waking up with my hands on my face i feel the breath of a terrible beast crawls over my shoulder and down to my feet dawn wades in from the shore spreads out onto the floor keeps the stranger at bay but he won’t stay away i don't fear the things that i did like falling in rivers when i was a kid all the things that i now fear all hide in the shadows, still yet to appear they will come and go pull you in for a show they might not look the same but they still know your name

I took the stand to witness to a bench of judges To tell them what I thought love was. They all had your face. I raised my hand and stared them all right in the eye But to my surprise, I had nothing to say. One by one they all left the premises. And left me wondering what the matter was. I had a file of written pages When I opened it up it was nothing but X's And I woke up alone for the first time that I can remember It was the tenth of September at your place I haven't looked outside but I heard there's been a change of weather Since we were together, the other day I meet my shrink in the morning mirror Wait for him to make it clearer An impasse of negotiations Thinking of what the other's feeling It's been so long since I made my mind up Staring at the bottom of an empty cup Wondering how I can run behind me I fall back asleep so you can remind me

Waiting by the station side my ticket in my hand Nothing’s ever come for me but I can’t pass a chance The want of certainty has yet to hinder me Cars go by, the light resigns, the hours encircle me It’s just enough to lose myself and fall to reverie The sky is getting black but I’m not turning back Trains pull in the crowd descends, the people pass in twos Fascinations all around but I still think of you The times have changed, you say. So why do I remain? Memories they swarm as bees they bury my body deep The swarm appears, they lure me near but I won’t go astray My gaze is steady on the vanishing horizon
