If I could just leave my body for the night Then we could be dancing No more missing you while I'm gone There we could be dancing And you'd smile and say, "I like this song" And when our eyes will meet there We will recognize nothing's wrong And I wouldn't feel so selfish I won't be this way very long
We had a great day Even though we forgot to eat And you had a bad dream Then we got no sleep 'Cause we were kissing
I don't know quite who I am, oh but man I am trying I make mistakes until I get it right An eye for an eye for an eye for an eye for an eye I used to hate myself but now I think I'm alright
First time, you let me stay the night despite your own rules You took off early to go cheat your way through film school You left a note in your perfect script: 'Stay as long as you want' I haven’t left your bed since.

On the sheet, I see your horizon All of me pressed onto you But in this light, you look like Poseidon I'm just a ghost you walk right through
"Did you get enough love, my little dove? Why do you cry? And I’m sorry I left, but it was for the best Though it never felt right / My little Versailles."
If I ventured in the slipstream Between the viaducts of your dream Where immobile steel rims crack And the ditch in the back roads stop
I just laid down and cried The waters don't really go by me Give me something I can see Something bigger and louder than the voices in me Something to believe
