Folding paper hearts inside your grip/ Scoring lines you know will last Holding down the things you know of love/ Tearing hearts/ That once were good You're so cold/ But I/ Can see your thoughts unfold You've been told/ So many things that haunt your soul. If I knew that the pain could endanger all of me and consume all the clarity I crave Could I throw all I know to the flames of the fallen ones Would a life in the cold/ preserve heart/preserve soul Well you know/ and you chose/ to stay closed And I know/ I could run/ but I froze I am with you and alone. Calculating laughter you predict/ distance doesn't suit us well Greeting doubt, inviting fear and hate/ Gripping paper hearts/ You made to break You're so cold/ But I/ Can see your thoughts unfold You've been told/ So many things that haunt your soul. If I knew that the pain could endanger all of me and consume all the clarity I crave Could I throw all I know to the flames of the fallen ones Would a life in the cold/ preserve heart/preserve soul Well you know/ and you chose/ to stay closed And I know/ I could run/ but I froze I am with you and alone. ©Ghosts In Daylight

Did you ever get taught to stick em up? To stand by the ones you love so much Or were you taught to think of number one? Cos no one else ever would You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got it all wrong wrong wrong wrong Cos I know what you are capable of You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got all wrong wrong wrong wrong Cos I know that you are capable of love All those lessons in life / Did they tell you to fight ? Or did they tell you to run and hide, run and hide You didn’t think that anyone could / you didn’t think that anyone should Love you like I do / and that I’d need love from you too You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got it all wrong wrong wrong wrong Cos I know what you are capable of You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got all wrong wrong wrong wrong Cos I know that you are capable of love Oh and oh they never told you / you thought (you thought) it was something to be won And oh they never showed you / how it (how it) how it should be done You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got it all wrong wrong wrong wrong Cos I know what you are capable of You’ve got it all wrong / you’ve got all wrong wrong wrong wrong Cos I know that you are capable of love ©Ghosts In Daylight

Those days / we managed to waste them away / and then / it got a little bit better day by day Ooh yeah / I’ve been waiting for the right time / it’s been so long it’s been so long feel I’ve been waiting all my life Ooh yeah / so I’m gonna pick a right time when we’re staring each other right in the face in the face So I get a little closer to you / I can see in your eyes You are happy ever after / and so / its safe to say goodbye Oh and / you thought I had a big imagination / you never could see you were above your station baby Ooh yeah / so I’m gonna pick a right time when we’re staring each other right in the face in the face So I get a little closer to you / I can see in your eyes You are happy ever after / and so / its safe to say goodbye And even though it hurt / I know I am better Even though you hurt / me / I know this is better © Ghosts In Daylight
