Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars

Sitting here just on my own staring out of my window
At the night lit up by stars
All the street lamps try to shine much brighter than they can
A wasted symphony of light
Listening to every song that I know might make me cry
I feel like being emotional tonight
All because of everything and anything, it's all because
It's all because

Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars

Sheltered lonely seventeen, wait to grow up soon enough
Embrace the sanctuary of love?
But I know that I am broke, I have known this for a while
A fear has made my silence smile
All the posters on my walls all look appalled and at me
They're sneering at me
Locked and broken all alone, look and broken all because
It's all because there is no one

Looking slowly down the map at everywhere that I am not
A worldwide need to get away
Teenagers everywhere, kissing mommy, saying prayers
In God I relinquish trust
All I think I really need is somebody to make me bleed
To make me realise I'm alive
Just a character to everyone that knows me, not alive
It's all because I'm not alive

Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars (Running faster)
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars (Floating higher)

Nothing, sweet and harmless nothing of me
Nothing left to stick around these shores for
I'm bored of looking like everybody else
And everybody else is tired of looking just like me
Like nothing, like nothing at all
Like nothing, like nothing at all

Ripping away all these stupid little phrases and restraints
"Yeah, I'll be ok..."
Never saying anything unless it's what I feel or meant
"Yes, you're fascinating tonight..."
Bored of feeling teenage angst, not expecting any thanks
"You're just the same as them..."
If everybody feels this way at some point why don't they...
Why don't we all just try to change?

Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars (Running faster)
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars (Floating higher)

...and gone
Like nothing, like nothing at all
Like nothing, like nothing at all
Like nothing, like nothing at all
Like nothing, like nothing at all

(waves/harp solo)

Just looking down and smile with eerie content
I've never felt this way in my life just yet
The feeling that nothing has been decided yet
A common feeling taken to uncommon highs
I'll never let the anything of me die
It's all because I never wanted to live and cry

It's me and everything I touch won't turn to gold
Or bronze, or turn to anything - cos I'm still not sold
A price tag hangs from everything except from all the stars
You can't charge a price for the sea to roll far, to roll far

The chemicals that created all that is space
Remain deep hidden in the heart in my head
We each need two hearts otherwise our lives aren't led
A spooky vision as I look at you crawl
Pretend you're happy? You're not happy at all
It's all because you're terrified of the height of the fall

It's me and everything I touch won't turn to gold
Or bronze, or turn to anything - cos I'm still not sold
A price tag hangs from everything except from all the stars
You can't charge a price for the sea to roll far, to roll far

It's me and everything I touch won't turn to gold
Or bronze, or turn to anything - cos I'm still not sold
A price tag hangs from everything except from all the stars
You can't charge a price for the sea to roll far, to roll far

Within the heavens of the nothing there is
Your deep religions are as real as showbiz
So take advantage of the days that you're yet to live
The snow may fall but if it is, just get cold
Don't stay inside and do whatever you're told
Sometimes the frostbite makes other hands easier to hold

It's me and everything I touch won't turn to gold
Or bronze, or turn to anything - cos I'm still not sold
A price tag hangs from everything except from all the stars
You can't charge a price for the sea to roll far, to roll far

Far away from here I died and went away
To where I'm still alive but very rarely here
Goodbye to all the things I left behind
Goodbye to all the friends that lied about the facts to me
You never liked me, never needed me...goodbye

Death is the end, so find another friend
Death is the end, so find another friend
A friend to hold to your hand, a friend to manipulate time
A friend that forever stands besides
Your mind

Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
Take me to the sea, take me to the stars
