Pretend

Say it now,
In sweet, secret darkness.
It's just us now,
No one to hear us.
Even I can pretend you said nothing.
I won't hear you,
So you can tell me.
Please just let me pretend that you love me?

My tangled words,
You pull them from me.
They come out all wrong,
But I know you hear me.
Even you can pretend this means something.
I won't trust you,
So you can't fail me.
Please can you just pretend that you love me?

Staring into the light
It came by surprise

I try to write about it
But the words just tangle and get stuck

When I see your face
I fill up so fast
The love overflows
It’s too much, it almost makes me sad

Staring into the light
It came by surprise

I can’t imagine my life when the light goes out
I’m so caught up in fear of the darkness
While I’m staring into the light

I get ahead of myself
I’m always off in the distance
We’ve met before
Our whole lives in an instant

Steam

What if there's more wrong with me than can be fixed?
What if no one ever thinks I'm worth it?
What if there's more wrong with me than can be fixed?

I sense every fragment of discontent.
I feel every moment of hesitance.
I can feel every bit of your dissonance.

I hate feeling old me coming back to the surface.
Just when I thought I'd beat all my demons.
I can't handle anything less than perfect.

I feel everything that's wrong beneath the surface.
I hate feeling old me coming back to the surface.

Strangers

I don’t make new friends.
I’m wrapped up in my old cocoon.
I don’t let people in.
And when I do, it just hurts.
It’s my cocoon.
You don’t fit.

That Place

There’s a place in my head where you love me.
In that place, it is dark; you are warm.
We are lost in a haze, and we’ll be here for days ‘til you’re gone.
You are gone.
You are gone.

There’s a place in my heart where you’re living.
In that place, it is dark; you are warm.
You are wrapped up in me, and my love runs free ‘til you’re gone.
You are gone.
You are gone.

It was I that flew far away, and it’s you who’s in my heart to stay.
But you stayed behind, and I’m out of your sight.
Oh, how I wish we’d had time…
