lyrics

the shine of your eyes
packs the power of the sun at the strike of noon
but I've been hiding
in the corner of an empty, darkened room

when I look in them
I know there’s incandescent light you want to share
but what if i’m broken
and always afraid of losing what is there

I don’t want to stay
behind the drapes
in the attic
where I’ve always played

I want to
let the sun come through
burn the blackout curtains
and run outside to you

you tell me you love me
and that love isn’t going away anytime soon
but my light sometimes wavers
while yours is always set to the strike of noon

when body locks up
I run away to turn sing about it alone
leaving you stranded
two distant friends resigned to kiss by phone

I don’t want to die
behind the drapes
in the attic
where i’ve always played

I want feel
the sun come through
and trace the rays
right back to you

the night is here now
as I linger on a memory in my bed
an old time of progress
when I didn’t give in to the traffic in my head

why does love have to feel new
when it ages we become slaves to the way we were
to the freedom of shyness
and the desire to let our lives occur

i don’t want to wait
behind the drapes
in the attic
where my spirit decays

I want to
let the sun come through
burn the blackout curtains
and throw myself to you
