I know I promised, but I feel so much better after midnight And I'm sorry 'cause I am far too busy with myself I might move away (where to go?) Let me move away (where to go?) I know I promised, but it all seems so easy in the moonlight And I'm sorry but it feels like I am drowning in myself I'm haunted by mistakes, won't go away I'm not feeling safe inside my skin I know I promised, but I feel so much better after midnight
Settle down with me Don´t move along without me Different points of view, they don´t change how I feel Like mirrors in a field, a truth to hard to yield Time goes by so fast There´s no changing the past Should I just sit down and let it rest? I'm lucid in my dreams, I'm going nowhere so it seems Walk around in circles, the same old path Settle down with me Don't move along without me Different points of view, they don't change how I feel Maybe I'm just scared I wasn't build to last I've opened up, is that not enough?
I just can’t help it my eyelids are closing Whenever I hear your voice I want to sleep on your chest We talked for hours when we were alone Silence we’d understand So far we’ve come sadly There’s something that we can't confess And it’s burning our insides out There’s something we’re afraid to admit And it’s burning our insides out When we wake up And you put on the best smile you can fake While you know that we're drifting further away from reality When we look at each other and know it's all over And we tell ourselves that we need each other In so many ways for times when we don't have a friend to rely on
I've seen all I've wanted to see when I was young I can't fall back to the same routine Lost in reverie, living nostalgic dreams Now these memories are all i am I'll see you again in my nostalgic dreams Where we can meet endlessly Give me something to rely on 'cause the distance seems to grow I can't go through everyday Knowing I'm not where I'm supposed to be Feeling like I'm going nowhere Being who I am today.
