lyrics

Days are dark with closed eyes,
when you live in every moment as if it's your last goodbye.
Nights grow longer and colder, with dreams of a better life.
But it'll be alright.

We're all so
on the fence.
But when we all come down,
allow your feet to touch the ground,
and keep your head above the clouds.

We’re all so at peace
we keep closing our eyes.
Too afraid to look up again
because we know that time’s passing by
So rush, rush, rush
as we long for longer nights.
We’re all so at peace, we keep closing--
Closing our eyes

We're all so
on the fence.
But when we all come down,
allow your feet to touch the ground,
and keep your head above the clouds.

‘Cause happiness is criss-crossed legs on the floor
And dirty feet
The way that you breathe when you’re sitting next to me
The curve of our smiles for the days that passed
My God, I hope these memories always last
So, unlace your shoes and sit down next to me
We’ll talk ‘bout what we got, what we don’t, and what will always be
And as we slowly start to lose our minds
I’ll be there to remind you of all the times and
I’ll sing to the sun
I’ll never forget this
And I’ll swear to anything above
I’ll never lose my way again
I’ll sing to the sun
I’ll never forget this
