lyrics

Sometimes I look at you and think that you’re beautiful
Stylishly so, in an “I don’t care” way
And I stare at you from behind painted glass windows
The colour depending on what kind of day
And my hands press up against the glass – I can’t reach you
So surely I will not be able to teach you
Your worth…but I’ll pray for you every night

And as I melt away I forget that once
I would dance all day to the dream I’ve yet to touch
But how dreams fade when they get stuck in the mud

Sometimes I look at you and wonder if I am what’s
Bringing you down to the ground and I ponder
“ maybe I should work with flowers? Or go back and
Study significant things you get paid for?”
But hurry cos I’m getting older and they're getting younger
And I feel like everyone’s staring at me
I don’t know what you want me to be

But as I melt away I forget that once
I would dance all day to the dream I’ve yet to touch
But how dreams fade when they get stuck in the mud

Am I aching your heart or just mine?
Will it be ok if I start walking in time?
And for you I would nail myself to the wall
But I’ll hate you for it…

Sometimes I look at you and think
I love you so much that I’d give all this up
If it meant you could hold me and know I was here in the moment
And not with the puzzle and how to solve it
But I don’t know when I’m allowed to be happy or proud
So I’ll always tone down did you figure it out?
I’ve wanted to scream and shout

And as I melt away I forget that once
I would dance all day to the dream I’ve yet to touch
But how dreams fade when they get stuck in the mud X 2
