He found a place to hide
High up in the trees
He rubbed his face with soil
And dreamed that he was free

A few days later on
He walked back into town
Resigned to try and stop
Resigned to settle down

His eyes were filled with light
His eyes were filled with light
He choked upon his tears and knew
He would be alright

He found a place to live
On Desert Avenue
He leaned out of the window
And watch his whole life through

Sure that he was missing
The things that bloom at night
Sure that if he saw them
If the streetlamps caught them right

His eyes would fill with light
His eyes would fill with light
He would choke upon his tears for once
He would be alright

Out across the rooftops
Out towards the hills
One day he will see it
But for now he’s waiting still

Out across the rooftops
Towards the dream that kills
