lyrics

The waters rise and fall covering us all
In a blanket of our tears
And all the wasted days
Pictures that portray memories I can’t shake
A million sparks across the pavement play
Like all the words we’ll never say
A million bulbs one by one they explode
Taking with them all the things we’ll never know
All this paint on a canvas we can’t erase
Old habits we can’t break
Turpentine dissolves
When you want to hide it all
When you want to get away
Flashing colored lights on a perfect screen of white
It’s all so plain to see these pictures never meant a thing
A million reasons why we ever lived a lie
Just to crawl outside this skin
The stars are out tonight a million tiny lights
They never looked so bright
As the twinkle in your eye, a teardrop and "good-bye"
Without a single reason why
