about

I wrote this today and felt like it needed to be recorded. Sorry it's been a while

lyrics

There's a place in my head
Where the music ignites
And I swear I saw you sitting there
one day

With your tongue in your cheek
And your hair ocean green
You asked why I don't come around
anymore

You took my hand up in yours
And said, "Hey, follow me"
And we got lost in my sheets
'til past 3

And while you were asleep
I wrote you down like a dream
In case I woke up and I couldn't
remember

Cause every now and then I get
wrapped up in day dreams
And I stop making real life happen
And you come along
like the tune of a song and
I'm back where I started
I'm so open-hearted
And ready to start living again

It's a quarter 'til dawn
When I wake and you're gone
The memory of your kisses
still on me

Go outside, have a smoke
Feel the blood start to flow
And I'm ready to give life
another chance

It's easy to feel
Like a victim of fate
Trapped in her games, I get wrapped up
in the same

But I spend too much time
Pretending I'm alive
And forget what this life
is all about

Cause every now and then I get
wrapped up in day dreams
And I stop making real life happen
And you come along
like the tune of a song and
I'm back where I started
I'm so open-hearted
And ready to start living again

Yes, I'm ready to start living again
Yes, I'm ready to start living again
