lyrics

I’ve been living in the same dream
I’ve got every one of your moves down
Time slipped from your hour glass
So I’m laying all the memories out
We’re dreamers, trailblazer keepers
Who think they know it all
We were sailing by the lonely street lights
Never thought we’d fall

In my darkest days I’m falling down
Give me wings to fly this cold heart out

Sometimes I get this feeling, it comes and goes
Wonder what my life would be with you here but I’ll never know
Cause it’s cold on the outside
I’ll spend my whole life waiting for one more chance
My arms are reaching to hold you and join in the dance
Or are we crystal ships just passing by?

So I’m hanging to a night scene
In the town that we both carved out
Traced our idols from the big screen
But now the picture’s losing sound
Oh your voice fills my head
Can you tell me where you’ve run
Cause the lonely street lights hold no answers
On what this world’s become without you

Running every risk to claim ourselves
Taking chances like nobody else

Sometimes I get this feeling, it comes and goes
Wonder what my life would be with you here but I’ll never know
Cause it’s cold on the outside
I’ll spend my whole life waiting for one more chance
My arms are reaching to hold you and join in the dance
Or are we crystal ships just passing by?
