The waters rise and fall
Covering us all
In a blanket of our tears
And all the wasted days
Pictures that protray
Memories that I can't shake
A million sparks
Across the pavement play
Like all the words we'll never say
A million bulbs
One by one they explode
Taking with them
All the things we'll never know
All this paint
On a canvas we can't erase
Old habits we can't break
Turpentine dissolves
When you want to hide it all
When you want to get away
Flashing coloring lights
On a perfect screen of white
It's all so plain to see
These pictures never meant a thing
A million reasons why
We ever lived a lie
Just to crawl outside this skin
The stars are out tonight
A million tiny lights
They never looked so bright
As the twinkle in your eye
A tear-drop and a goodbye
Without a single reason why
