Blackout Curtains

from by This Is Your Life



If these streets were paved in gold, would I even care at all?
Would I crave a piece of them? Would it become my medicine?
If the sky fell tonight, would I even close my eyes?
Or breathe down the ash and sing, a farewell with “Fuck This Place”

I can’t get back everything I've lost or never had
And this day to day, it feels so fucking meaningless
So I'll sit and sift, sift through the past
And watch the ghosts float through my head

I don't know if I can do this, I don't know if I can take this
I don't know where I went wrong, but I've got a clue

Cause’ even the biggest hearts, can be shattered
Cause’ even the strongest wills, will be broken
Now I've got a clue

So I'll slip into the past and dream another dream
And when I wake, I will forget everything
It’s back to reality

I've been watching you, I've seen you force it down
I'm feeling numb like you, my head’s been floating with the clouds

This is no way to live your life, holding everything back, running out of time
This is no way to live your life, holding everything in, letting regret win
We’re running out of time

Will you be there, when the sun hits my eyes?
