cant escape the rain drowning. trees go down and lights go out so much pent up pain washed out by the rain it's a strange state strange state of affairs everything is everywhere can't escape the wind biting. trees are strewing leaves about so much I have seen scattered by the wine. it's a strange scene strange scene on the street not much light and not much heat strange state of affairs everything this everywhere

home 03:50
so I leave a house memories so I leave home I'll find another place to go a place to be on my own a place where my name isn't known when i'm far away sometimes I feel so alone all my childhood dreams fit in cardboard boxes my old favorite things go out with the garbage so I see how empty this old house can be as I look around I'll miss all the familiar sounds the sound of keys in the door the sound of your footsteps on the floor when i'm far away I don't hear those sounds anymore all my childhood dreams fit in cardboard boxes my old favorite things go out with the garbage my old house has been torn down and I watched as the roof hit the ground I used to sit on the stairs but now, they're not there my memories are fading away to make room for the new I'll make a house with you.

when the night rolls over me and my eyes roll closed, I can feel you next to me only I choose where we go if the earth reversed itself I could turn back time I wouldn't have to be asleep for you to be alive in my dreams, you're a memory just a shell of who you used to be all of your complexity I can't recreate when the sun awakens me and your hand leaves mine the air of you is everywhere, but it's only in my mind in my dreams, you're a memory just a shell of your former self all of your complexity I can't recreate oh I can hear your voice calling out I can hear your voice in my dreams, you're a memory just a shell of who you used to be all of your complexity I can't recreate

oh baby I'm fast asleep don't wake me up from this dream the sun is painting all the walls and maybe they're blue you only think of you no thoughts, nothing said blue walls painted in my head keeping my eyes closed and blocking all the windows how will I grow? oh baby you're always late I try so hard to stay awake my music keeps me up at night and you work all day you have no time to play no thoughts, nothing said blue walls painted in my head keeping my eyes closed and blocking all the windows how will I grow? no thoughts, nothing said blue walls turn to red shutting my eyes tight and blocking all the sunlight how will I grow?
5.
the sirens sounding off inside your head I'm just saying please come back to bed. should have realized then and in your eyes, it felt like something changed didn't know I watched you slip away didn't know oh no say it ain't so I wish you didn't have to be so tense nothing that you say seems to make sense oh where is your head? oh no say it ain't so

your face 04:11
and I know how I can remember your face so you can't hide in that same old place I can't believe the things I've seen and I want to run away and hide and I know how I can remember your face so you can't hide in that same old place I can't believe the things I've seen and I need to find a place to hide you can try to deny the hurtful things that you said but I'll never forget, your words repeat in my head you can try to deny, but I will testify wanna see your eyes fill with fear and regret I can't believe the things I've seen and I know how I can remember your face
7.
like rhymes, you are always caught on my mind and stuck in my head, some words that you said how can I ever forget? don't hold your breath I'm not there yet our feet walk away time my mind runs like a storm your hands on my face feel so nice and warm seeing your smile in every window so much you'll never know don't hold your breath I'm not there yet not yet I say don't wait but our feet walk away time in the late afternoon, you have no clue I'm running out of space in my head it's always filled with you don't hold your breath I'm not there yet not yet but sometime I'll look into your eyes and say please stay I like spending my time with you
