When the lightning flashes too bright
It reveals all the things that have gone wrong in this night
At the crossroads where she stands so thin
Trace the blood on the tracks, it’ll lead back to where she’s been
And I knew it, like I’m always right
There’s a fire in the sky, makes a big rock shining bright
It’s a reflection, like the one I saw in you
No light of your own, you’ve got to steal it like the moon

And so this is all I take.
Watch me crumble it up and I’ll throw it away.
But it grows like a seed from the ground
And you’ll see what is lost, it can always be found

It seems that I’ve gone without you for too long

And all these days won’t matter when we’re gone.
You can hold me down and tell me that I’m wrong.
But I’ve got bigger things on my mind.

And it’s started, it was all too soon
My eyes transfixed through opposite side of the moon
And these words we send both proud and shy
Like soldiers they march, for this cause they will die
But these wars we fight they have no reason
The soldiers we send they all come home bleeding (what’s this for)
And we’ll piece it together now someone is listening
But this puzzle’s no picture because pieces are missing. (what’s this for)

And it seems that I’ve gone without you for too long

And all these days won’t matter when we die.
You can’t hold me down and tell me that they’re right.
Because I’ve got bigger things on my mind.

When we grow up too fast and learn to bleed
Pitch our tents under lightning and swim out to sea
And we’ll die in the wreck they say
But I’ve got air in my neck
So, when it reaches my lungs I can state my opinion
Slit the throats of these doubts and have a new beginning
And if all the flustered egos and tanks of gas
Mean another life and another chance then I’m fine

And all these days won’t matter when we’re gone.
You can’t hold me down and tell me that I’m wrong.
And all these days won’t matter when we die.
I’ll hold you tight because I know we’ll be just fine.
Just fine, just fine, just fine.
