Lying awake
I dream of the day
Before I lose my fate,
When you pull me away
Everyday I wait.

Someday we'll leave it all behind
I'm telling you now
You're the little light the little sign
The only one who blows my mind

Sometimes I want
To be your savior
To breathe life back to you
I guess I don't have to tell you
Since you've stripped my every layer.

Lingering in bed
I wish for that apocalypse
In the glow of the early sun
I want to teach you to fly
You're my love, my only one
Under the moonlit sky

Ivy vines curl
Beyond smoky dream clouds
Someday we'll run away
Without making a sound.
