Daylight is Wasting Away

You see the pain in my eyes And you erase the cruel lies I see the pain in your eyes Tell me something promising as time flies Don't say your goodbyes I say hello to our temporary highs Pre-chorus: Do you hear me, calling your name from the other side of the road? Did you know that you are the best, compared to the rest? I've been left in the cold on my own... I feel like I'm far away from the warm city, in the forest all alone Hello, hello - can you hear me screaming out? I just need someone to lean on without a doubt Tell me something I don't know You tell the same stories...it's like watching a familiar show Chorus: Tell me that there's some hope to reap Tell me which road to choose or I'll fall into a hole of confusion, oh so deep Tell me, tell me something Tell me, tell me something I don't know I don't know anything about what's on your mind I don't know where I am...I feel as if I am blind Goodbye, goodbye - can you hear my heart being fast? I'm trying to look forward to a future that's coming so fast Forgiving and forgetting the past Is harder than I thought... I wish this moment between us won't last I give it all I got before I give up and rot Waiting for you to tell me, tell me Tell me something I don't know... Tell me, tell me if I'm worthy of your happiness Going through rough times and I'm in a state of mournful gladness Verse 7: I'm sorry for being unfaithful...I've become this jaded fool I'm sorry for the xoxo's I gave you that made you ungrateful I'm sorry for being your inadequate tool...but I'll try to stay cool I'm sorry for telling you something you already know - I'm swimming in my lament pool Even in the creeping shadows, Our love makes the night radiant, oh so radiant Even in our deepest sorrows, Our passion makes our days and nights so brilliant I give up everything just to have you in my arms So enchanted by your elegant soul, sparkling with charms Kiss me before the dawn peaks it's head out Don't forsaken me, you know what I'm talking about I crash into you in a lightyear moment and I'm under your spell Wondering if you're a hell in heaven's clothing...my mind is spinning, going pell-mell! Pre-chorus: Do you hear me, calling your name from the other side of the road? Did you know that you are the best, compared to the rest? I've been left in the cold on my own... I feel like I'm far away from the warm city, in the forest all alone Hello, hello - can you hear me screaming out? I just need someone to lean on without a doubt Tell me something I don't know You tell the same stories...it's like watching a familiar show Chorus: Tell me that there's some hope to reap Tell me which road to choose or I'll fall into a hole of confusion, oh so deep Tell me, tell me something Tell me, tell me something I don't know I don't know anything about what's on your mind I don't know where I am...I feel as if I am blind Goodbye, goodbye - can you hear my heart being fast? I'm trying to look forward to a future that's coming so fast Forgiving and forgetting the past Is harder than I thought... I wish this moment between us won't last I give it all I got before I give up and rot Waiting for you to tell me, tell me Tell me something I don't know... Tell me, tell me if I'm worthy of your happiness Going through rough times and I'm in a state of mournful gladness Verse 8: I see you in the darkest of night, Douse me with your delight Daylight is wasting away like fire Led astray by the desire that I admire Prove to me that you love me eternally Make me believe you love me unconditionally Are you telling the truth or are you a liar? Are you the clever king and I'm your exquisite empire? You invigorate me with your power of serenity I crown you with vivacious prosperity I implore you to not be carried away with your greedy ways Because there will be days when you won't be showered with gaily praise Pre-chorus: Do you hear me, calling your name from the other side of the road? Did you know that you are the best, compared to the rest? I've been left in the cold on my own... I feel like I'm far away from the warm city, in the forest all alone Hello, hello - can you hear me screaming out? I just need someone to lean on without a doubt Tell me something I don't know You tell the same stories...it's like watching a familiar show Chorus: Tell me that there's some hope to reap Tell me which road to choose or I'll fall into a hole of confusion, oh so deep Tell me, tell me something Tell me, tell me something I don't know I don't know anything about what's on your mind I don't know where I am...I feel as if I am blind Goodbye, goodbye - can you hear my heart being fast? I'm trying to look forward to a future that's coming so fast Forgiving and forgetting the past Is harder than I thought... I wish this moment between us won't last I give it all I got before I give up and rot Waiting for you to tell me, tell me Tell me something I don't know... Tell me, tell me if I'm worthy of your happiness Going through rough times and I'm in a state of mournful gladness Verse 9: Do you clearly see what I see? I gaze into your eyes with hope and joy I look up to you in sunlit glee So tired of being a tattered and torn toy on the kitchen floor, forlorning hopelessly I happily give you my genuine xoxo's Who knows where our wicked wind blows I give you a gift from my young heart It's something I haven't told you yet... wishing it will bring us together instead of tear us apart Tell me something I don't know - something that I won't forget Something that I'll not easily get I bet
