"many wish to change the world, few wish to change themselves"


I struggle to find the truth in your lies
Here we stand in the middle of the night
I’m drowning in the ocean of your eyes

Holding my breath, you break through my disguise
The wall that I’ve built is crumbling down
I struggle to find the truth in your lies

Why are we always saying our goodbyes?
You lift me up and pull me in closer
I’m drowning in the ocean of your eyes

Frozen in place, the snow around us flies
Breathing heavy, noses barely touching
I struggle to find the truth in your lies

Breaking our trance, a train lets out its cries
Fast and desperate, our lips crash together
I’m drowning in the ocean of your eyes

Inside me everything burns up and dies
The world melts away, it’s just you and me
I struggle to find the truth in your lies
I’m drowning in the ocean of your eyes
