Its a misty scene that piece by piece by piece we've arranged
I stand opposite you a face lit in just one shade
And although I sweep and spin you remain in your frozen state
You smile briefly we are both centered in this dream
It is only with my final gesture that you awake
You allow our eyes to meet my breath is so stilted
I've not seen eyes beyond that a soul I've yearned for more
Ability to breathe restored still a boy lost absorbed

I was definitely happy
Screamed your name
But it was still the same
Heaven knows I've struggled
Its getting late
I can't sleep I'm so awake

And you are
What can only be described as Earth's beauty magnified
I've not seen eyes beyond that a soul I've yearned for more
Ability to breathe restored still a boy lost absorbed

I was definitely happy
Screamed your name
But it was still the same
Heaven knows I've struggled
Its getting late
I can't sleep I'm so awake

My eyes take a couple of seconds to adjust
The image of you standing there is not yet lost
I try to retrace the steps that we took
But then I awake and its too late to look

I try to remember the last steps we took
But then I awake and its too late to look
Late to look
Late to look

I was definitely happy
Screamed your name
But it was still the same
Heaven knows I've struggled
Its getting late
I can't sleep I'm so awake

    General CommentTop tune! If this song is anything to go by the new album is gonna be sweeeeeet! The last 2 and a half mins of this song is awesome!
    Think it's about someone who he loved and how he's struggling to cope with not being with her anymore?
