we live small lives
under bright lights
that we're disguised by
and i don't recognize my own
my own

mother make me brave
i'll be grown before this tree is tall
this is the new world
we live in the new world
light make me new again
we are the fragile ones and so it is
we walked in the moonlight
you whispered my name once
i wanted to follow
but you're not there anymore
no you're not there anymore
and you don't even know who you are

lightning in the sky is feather light
come up for air now, you're dining with the wolves tonight
it's ok, it's alright, there are rainy endings to perfectly purple nights
i met you here like a lover, out of love
we both know it's over and it's done
come out from the covers, we were addicted to each other

fade fade faster
as quickly as you came
you're someone i used to know
and i still hear you whispering my name
my name
