shadows play across barren walls
hide-and-seek tag, dark arms reaching
it’s four AM and I can’t sleep
eyes fixed on black and white memories

hide-and-seek tag, dark arms reaching
clawing into my head go away, go away

eyes fixed on black and white memories
a time when reality was better than dream

clawing into my head go away, go away
shadows spinning into month-old moonlight

a time when reality was better than dream
I stayed up ‘till dawn with you

shadows spinning into month-old moonlight
our story plays out on my bedroom walls

I stayed up ‘till dawn with you
unable to shut my eyes in your presence

our story plays out on my bedroom walls
I’m forced to relive every kiss, every whisper

unable to shut my eyes in your presence
your good-bye echos in my head

I’m forced to relive every kiss, every whisper

it’s four am and I can’t sleep

your good-bye echos in my head

as shadows play across barren walls
