Caught in the rapture of this place Blinded by the lights so I can't stay Are we living for heaven in our eyes? Blinded by the light Vision of the world ‘Cause these churches were made from ammunition These answers retained through premonition But you make it a falling star And I have a broken heart Are we living for heaven in our eyes? We’re divided by the light Vision of the world But you make it a falling star And I have a broken heart What good is fiction now?

Abandoned, I was your victim I learned to love you I was your baby now My eyes would follow you ‘round this room, oh! Your breathing I have syncopated, oh! So troubled, I can’t believe you I learned to hate you I am leaving, now Your guilt has driven me up the roof, oh! These tears of mine I’ve syncopated, oh! Heavily I have broken down Wild nights come to cheer me now My eyes would follow you ‘round this room, oh! Your breathing I have syncopated, oh! These stars below us Conflicted with doubt Beneath the lights come The waves of hands clap

My heart has been broken It falls on the floor when I talk The moon she has risen She follows the route that I walk Fingers that have been dipped in The ink that I have written And all the blanks been lifted To get on. I’m kicking the doors down And blinded by light from the dawn The sun he has risen He chases the light from the rock The brightest star I’ve ever seen Is shining down upon my feet And all the blanks been lifted To get on You who made up all the words You who lifted up my world You brightened up my world to get on The brightest star I’ve ever seen Is shining down upon my feet And all the blanks been lifted to get on To get on One day

You say ‘Lady’ I said ‘Mother me’ Rolling voices braided every day. She was the one that I adored the most With those bright smiles I was the one that was frightened most By her exotic light Knee-deep in trouble I came to her house That’s when she told me that the world was ready now You say ‘Baby’ I say, ‘Come to me’ Faithful graces deepens ecstasy He was the one that I adored the most With those bright eyes I was the one that was frightened most By her exotic light Knee-deep in trouble I came to her house That’s when she told me that the world is ready now Your house

Desperately I fell on holy ground Grinding on the fact that I have found About you and I, about you and I Heavenly you made my eyes go blind Knelt down on my knees, felt I could fly It’s you and I It’s you and I together now Feel your lullabies Fainting cherub sighs Keeping what was mine Faithful alibis You and I Righteously I felt his hand on mine Vanishing the light with blinding sight Yes it’s you and I It’s you and I forever now You warned me You warned me of this life I can’t believe you’re mine Feel your lullabies Fainting cherub sighs Keeping what was mine Faithful alibis You and I Faithful alibis

I’d be so afraid to talk There’s no one listening I just ran the longest walk My heart quickening These ties that bind us These lies that mind us Two circles made into one A miracle that happened to none My eyes had seen the wildest one Who had been traveling I asked him where his mind had gone But he wasn’t listening ‘Cause my love there is one Our heart had become These ties that bind us These lies that mind us Two circles made into one A miracle that happened to none My love there is one Our heart had become The light of all of us The end of all of us

We loved all the places Ones we’ve shared before We followed all the traces Clothes left on the floor And if we fooled around Falling on the floor The sky we see is ours Changing before our eyes Waves of clothes were crashing in our minds I’m waiting for the time When I’ll see you again This will be the place where planets die Our hearts will collide, And colors fill the sky. My heart’s hungry for your eyes Falling on the floor And if we fooled around Clothes left on the floor We followed all the traces My heart’s hungry Our hearts will collide Falling on the floor
