Pieces

Waves are lapping on the shore All this laid on just for us Where’s the point of no return I wonder if we’ll ever learn Ain’t it just a beautiful day Walking through an open door Couldn’t ever ask for more I know that in my hour of need You will be there for me Ain’t it just a beautiful day Waves are lapping on the shore How could anybody ask for more Forget all of your mistakes You can’t take em with you anyway Waves are lapping on the shore How could anybody ask for more Forget all of your mistakes Ain’t it just a beautiful day

So tell me the reason that We found ourselves in this hopeless place together And tell me the reason that The sun and moon are the same size in the sky Fade in the morning shade from the sun Maybe one day yeah I’m holding on Can you feel it, can you feel it Can you see that We belong together, we belong together Know you feel it ,know you feel it Can you see that We belong together, we belong together And right when I realised That maybe I’ve been thinking bout forever I saw something in your eyes Reflecting back off of a speed limit sign Fade in the morning shade from the sun Maybe one day yeah I’m holding on Can you feel it, can you feel it Can you see that We belong together, we belong together Know you feel it ,know you feel it Can you see that We belong together, we belong together I can see it very clear sometimes But it’s gone in the blink of an eye And half awake I can hallucinate it right But it’s all white noise in the low light Can you feel it, can you feel it Can you see that We belong together, we belong together Know you feel it ,know you feel it Can you see that We belong together, we belong together

And they say a storm is coming in Yeah the likes of which we’ve never seen So far fetched and so within our reach to look away And as I stood there silent in the rain Faking disbelief for nobody That’s when I knew that you were everything, Everything. Up in the sky or low beneath the waves In the missed connections in my brain In all the words I wish that I could change or unsay And the truth is I could see it all I knew we were on a collision course The night I made a promise to hold on or walk away And in this orbit I attempt to reach Trying to get some distant clarity Going blind so I can see something that’s still the same Who am I to even start to judge A boy who crumbled at your slightest touch New York has changed so very much Since those days
4.
I keep a light in the window Making sure that it’s on So you know that I’m still here So you know You only did what had to I don’t blame you for nothin I still feel like shit without you So you know You’re tellin me that you met somebody Say it’s easier than it’s ever been I’m telling you I’m happy youre happy Cant you tell that I don’t mean it Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody When i’ve holding on to get you back again I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it Now I sleep in the day cause At night it don’t seem to come And time it dont seem to matter Anymore I chase the worst of the memories Trying to piece it together Till I just I can’t take it Anymore You’re tellin me that you met somebody You say it’s easier than it’s ever been I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody When i’ve holding on to get you back again I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it Happy you’re happy... You’re tellin me that you met somebody You say it’s easier than it’s ever been I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody When i’ve holding on to get you back again I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it

Suffer when you smile Got me reeling there for a little while Hearts a paperweight Cause I know you’re so far away But I need you Yeah I need you Yeah I need you Yeah I need you and nobody else will do Cause I need you Days just passing through Couldn’t half forget if I wanted to When you shine your light Making colours from black and white And I need you Yeah I need you Yeah I need you Yeah I need you and nobody else will do Cause I need you Sunlight falling in not a cloud in the sky I'm counting little white lies Silent signals take it one thing at a time I'm losing my mind Cause I need you

Heard you in the distance A storm on the scope Almighty thunder Coming for me I hoped Rolled over the horizon Swept up it all Batten the hatches And teardrops and branches But I hear the silence now Right to my core I never heard silence Like this before But I hear the silence now From wall to wall I never heard silence Like this before Very tall buildings Lights at high speed Trails on the taxis Heading all around me Up on the rooftop Wasteland of a view The pierce of the sirens Can you hear them too? Or is it just silence now Cause I tell you what It feels like this silence Is all that I’ve got Yeah I won the battle But I lost the war I never heard silence Like this before The plane flies so high Can't be seen or heard Looking down on the hills Looking down on all the birds But I hear the silence now Right in my core I never heard silence Like this before Yeah I hear the silence now From wall to wall I never heard silence Like this before
7.
I thought that it would be nothing I thought that it was the end Just trying to imagine How it was before it all began There’s nothing to be afraid of If this echo fades away It’s all happening right now Coming back going round again So when we touch is it real Am I feeling what I feel Right now So when we touch is it real Am I feeling what I feel Right now Cause I would wait Forever If you told me that our time will come again Yeah I would wait Forever If there’s half a chance our time will come again Silhouettes on the horizon Faces I can’t seem to place Seems impossible now I Thought i’d never ssee yours again Can we start again? Cause I would wait Forever If you told me that our time will come again Yeah I would wait Forever If there’s half a chance our time will come again

All of the reasons I didn’t wanna see Like a range mountains how did they hide from me What is it they say? The forest for the trees Well now they’re 20/20 All of the fault lines, the ground beneath her feet All of the lost time, the sun dives in the sea all the warning signs I couldn’t bring myself to read It’s all 20/20 Every raindrop threatening to fall So many rainclouds obscuring the sun Somewhere in my heart did I always know, did I always know All of the last times I didn’t quite believe Was I out of my mind or walking in my sleep Hidden in plain sight but now it’s out of reach It’s all 20/20

Looking out over the river In grainy black and white It looks the same every second It’s different all the time I don't hear a word you're saying But I know what you mean Secrets for safekeeping always Washing out to see Everything Is so hard faught I can’t believe this thing I got It's so damn easy to love you It's just so easy to do Not sure I could stop now If I wanted to It's so damn easy to love you It's just so easy to do Not sure I could stop now If I wanted If I wanted If I needed to All the flashes on the water Never twice the same Tell me do you have an answer Or at least someone to blame When everything Is run aground I can’t believe this thing I found It's so damn easy to love you It's just so easy to do Not sure I could stop now If I wanted to It's so damn easy to love you It's just so easy to do Not sure I could stop now If I wanted If I wanted If I needed to Sinking like a stone To the bottom of I don't even know I don't even know I don't even know It's so damn easy to love you It's just so easy to do Not sure I could stop now If I wanted If I wanted If I needed to

To the fever to the end To the breathless blow away the air Can we ever make it back To places we’ve never been To the fever to the king To the thoughts I never have No Breathing in time With the ocean Coming around again Can’t believe i’m Really falling in
11.
And I love you and you’ve gotta take the blame And I love it when you call my name Love the things that you don’t like about yourself Cause if they weren’t true then you’d be someone else And I love travelling with you by my side Or doing nothing staying home on Friday nights And I love the way you never suffer fools Even sometimes when I am one of them to On a scale of one to ten love 1s I don’t know and 10‘s sosure If you said that you loved me a million Then I’d still love you more I love the way you get me everytime I love it when you put your hand in mine I even love the way my words just disappear When they are not the ones you want to hear On a scale of one to ten love 1s I don’t know and 10 is sure If you said that you loved me a million Then I’d still love you more Yeah you know I’d love you more And I loved you for a while yeah I rehearsed But I love that I still said it first And I love the way you said it back Don’t wanna think about how you could’ve not done that On a scale of one to ten love 1s I don’t know and 10 is sure If you said that you loved me a million Then I’d still love you more Yeah you know I’d love you more Yeah I’m bit and there’s no cure
