  • 5 Bright Lights and Cityscapes
  • Hold my breath and I'll count to ten
    I'm the paper and you're the pen
    You fill me in and you are permanent
    And you'll leave me to dry
    I'm the writer and she's the muse
    I'm the one that you always choose
    She will falter and gift her blame
    And it's starts all over again
    Again again again

    She is bright lights and cityscapes
    I'm white lies that care for gates
    And she'll take all you ever have
    But I'm gonna love you
    You say maybe it'll last this time
    But I'm gonna love you
    You never have to ask
    I'm gonna love you
    'Til you start looking back
    I'm gonna love you
    So right
    I wouldn't need a second chance

    Shield your eyes from the truth at hand
    Tell me why it'll be good again
    All those demons are closing in
    And I don't want you to burn
    Never mind what I said before
    I don't want any less anymore
    You are carbon and I am flame
    I will rise and you will
    Remain

    For bright lights and cityscapes
    And landslides and masquerades
    And she'll take all you ever have
    But I'm gonna love you
    You say, "Maybe it'll last this time"
    But I'm gonna love you
    You never have to ask
    I'm gonna love you
    'Til you start looking back

    I wouldn't need a second chance
    I wouldn't need a second chance
    I wouldn't need a second chance
    I wouldn't need a second chance
