Vanity please don't lie to me, Life is a dream when you're looking fine in your eyes. Vanity please don't try with me, Life is a breeze when you're looking fine in my eyes.
Taking the time to judge yourself, Just to be what you wanted to, If I could just feel fine without you, Maybe my thoughts would cease to tie me down, In a way we both stay hoping, We'll survive it (it could be culture shock too), Making time to judge yourself, Just to be what you wanted to. And I rarely seem to care, Scent still lingers in the air, Now it's time for me to choose, And it's all because of you, Senseless thoughts and fading truth, Fought 'till rain poured from the sky. There's no one to blame, It's all in your mind, Only thing to explain, There's someone you've found, All the time that you ache, Well nothings the same, And it's going to rain, We're nothing to save.
U In My Head 01:52
Poured out my heart for you, Leant you my soul, Something to know, baby, I have not told, Go easy, Love me for me, You in my head.
Called me up last night, In the bitter cold wondering where to go to fight, Told you once last time, Not to wait for me, baby, you gotta live your own life, Tell society they should live and let the past die. Honestly, Did you think that a night out would be all you need to feel free? I guess you were given a chance, To be on your own, But your mind is relentless, So you never left home, All in your brain... Chasing something, Waiting on the Sun to light up, Hopefully the Earth will stay lit, Waiting on you.
Patiently waiting for moments like these to subside, I long for your story but speak to me softly, For whether you're honest or not there's a fallacy, And nothing seems to be, As it needs to be... Maybe I should spend more time alone, Give myself more room to grow, Call it a day on self made restraints, How open is a mind that tries to curate fate?
