I’ve air in my lungs, eyes in my sockets
and a heart that beats like a tap that leaks
in the night when you haven’t got a plumber who can stop it
In the summer time when everybody gets on it
warm our skins and get sunburnt from it
and our eyes shine bright like a sky full of comets that shoot like silver trains
If you can’t get what you love, you learn to love the things you’ve got
If you can’t be what you want, you learn to be the things you’re not
If you can’t get what you need, you learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
Feeling my way through the darkness, guided by a beating heart.
I can’t tell where the journey will end, but I know where to start.
They tell me I’m too young to understand. They say I’m caught up in a dream. Life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes. Well that’s fine by me.
So wake me up when it’s all over, when I’m wiser and I’m older. All this time I was finding myself, and I didn’t know I was lost.
I tried carrying the weight of the world, but I only have two hands. I hope I get the chance to travel the world, but I don’t have any plans.
Wish that I could stay forever this young, not afraid to close my eyes. Life’s a game made for everyone, and love is the prize.
