lyrics

One look at your eyes
and the feeling starts tearing me alive
you’re the muse in the back of my mind
a steady pulse of the slightest kind

And I don’t mean to pry
but there’s something about the step in your surprise
makes me wonder how I ever lead the lie
still the enemy is by my side

I could stand alone
in the tides’ surrounding glow
from the moment I lose my hold

I could stand alone
your beauty leads where my heart will go
a soft surrender while the madness grows

Do you see those stars?
Are they begging you to find a way to stay?
are they listening to every word you say
cause you’re the voice of the clearest day

And I will lay to waste
any doubt that has held me in the weight
of the years that I had no will to break
through the fears that I could not face

And I could stand alone
in the tides’ surrounding glow
from the moment I lose my hold

I could stand alone
your beauty leads where my heart will go
a soft surrender while the madness grows
