Lyrics

Awe & Wonder

I started out as a drunken boy
My world was full of awe and wonder
No dark ages no black and white
Everything in technicolor

I learned to keep my eyes on the prize
Instead of my head in a cloud of nothing
Didn’t even really notice when
I started to lose this awe and wonder

    And if you were here you’d be mine

It’s when I travel down to foreign worlds
Instead of chasing dreams that aren’t my own
I take a breath and it balances out
I got carried away by imagined numbers

All it is is just imaginary numbers

    And if you were here you’d be my
    Strangest love, one more time

I should keep my mind open wide
Instead of my eyes
Ahead lies the answer
ahead in the future

    Someday we’ll be the better of
    Somehow if we can find it love
    Somewhere if we can find each other

    Do I want to know?
    What it is I should be holding

 

 

 Treasure Island

It’s your skin that makes my bones melt
And it’s your laugh that makes me crumble and fall
It’s your eyes that make me colorblind
It’s your lips that make me
Death defiant

And there’s no treasure island

And it’s your eyes that make me colorblind
And it’s your wrinkling nose that gets me time and time again
Tell me where did we begin

And I know now, it’s a little hard to tell

Just tell me what are you
Just give me a clue
Oh, just tell me your name

And I will fall to the earth
And I will fall to your feet
Oh oh, I need a map of your head

If this is what you desire
If this is what you need
Oh oh there’s no guarantees

If this is what you need

It’s your eyes that make me colorblind
It’s your eyes that make me wonder why
Should I be singing this
Should I have ended it a long time ago
Such a long time ago

 


Run Too Slow

She carries the weight of the world around
She’s been towing all to the ground
And she’s dragging as she slows

And she is stalling because she doesn’t know
Where to go, oh where to go
And in her head it’s loud and clear

I can never run too slow

And she’s trying to stand tall
Afraid of the world hat’s about to fall
Right on top of her lonely head

And it’s a heavy heart that’s made of gold
Now she’s feeling so damn old
And in her head it’s loud and clear

I can never run too slow

I’m never speaking up again
Towing the weight that wasn’t even hers

I can never run too slow

 

 

Beware the end

You’re running up the road that I’ve gone down
You’re up against the whole world and you’re crying out
Well I’ve been trying to touch you
With all of my dying / never reached you

Well beware that in the end
You will disappear

Well I’ve been trying / To pull apart the universe
Make my mark / will I dent it in the end?
You just get overrun. It won’t do.
All the infinite noise you’ll never cut through

Well beware that in the end
You will disappear someday

I can sense the world going faster every day (repeat)

Well beware that in the end
You will disappear someday
Well beware that it’s the end

 

Highway

Everything’s gonna be just alright
Close the door and turn out the lights
I’m walking away now, as the years roll along
Gonna be nobody

Turning up slow

And I’ll see you again someday

Well I’m gonna chase my heart ‘round
There’s a thing I still haven’t found
So I’d say, I’m gonna turn my name round as the years roll along
Gonna be nobody / show me the war

I don’t have to hide
At the highway
I won’t even try the same thing again
I know, I’m older

Close the door and turn out the lights
What am I walking away from?
As the years roll along

I don’t have to hide
At the highway
I don’t even try the same thing again

 

 

I’ve been dreaming

Well the world it revolves around you
because you’re next to me
Everything will happen
Just wait and see

What you feel is of no concern
All you reveal will fade, not burn

I’ve been dreaming of you for so long

What you see, hidden in my face
All this conceals a fall from grace

I’ve been dreaming of you for so long
