You want it, you got it; well that's fine.
Just write me a postcard when you get home tonight.
To start and I cried "there are things to be doing like to stay alive. And protect the ones we love from sleepless nights when the ghouls walked in".
The ghost of my family sometimes haunt me in my sleep. I know that they're fine but it still scares the hell out of me. Sure, it depends on what you've want, what you're expecting and what you've got. But listen up - we're gonna be fine.

Because everyone's afraid for the world to end. There's a secret song we all sing up in our head. Everyone can fall in love with different intent. Spend the rest of our days hoping we should give. So let my life become the past. Until I'm ready to let it last. Is that really so much ask? I'll walk to the end and then come back.

The sidewalks are filled with all the people that I'd ever met. And they were yelling "Hey Matt, won't you come down and join in on this?" So I did. And I ran but by the time I got there everyone was gone. Everyone except for my Dad & Mom and they spoke to me. They said "Don't you hear our whispering everyday when you wake up? Don't forget to live your life because we love you. Yeah, we love you very much."

Because everyone's afraid for the world to end. There's a secret song we all sing up in our head. Everyone can fall in love with different intent. Spend the rest of our days hoping we should give. So let my life become the past. Until I'm ready to let it last. Is that really so much ask? I'll walk to the end and then come back.

Everyone's afraid for the world to end. There's a secret song we all sing up in our head. Everyone can fall in love with different intent. Spend the rest of our days hoping we should give. So let my life become the past. Until I'm ready to let it last. Is that really so much ask? I'll walk to the end and then come back!

    ------------------

    You want it, you got it; well that's fine.
    Just write me a postcard when you get home tonight.
    It was dark and I cried "there are things that we do in life to stay alive, and protect the ones we love from the sleepless nights when the ghouls walk in".
    The ghosts of my family sometimes haunt me in my sleep. I know that they're fine but it still scares the hell out of me. Sure, it depends on what you want, what you're expecting and what you've got. But listen up - we're gonna be fine.

    Because everyone's afraid for their world to end. It's a secret song we all sing up in our heads, that says "let me fall in love, or at least pretend we'll spend the rest of our days up in michigan." Don't let my life become the past until i'm ready to let it rest. Is that really so much to ask? To walk to the end and then come back?

    Then the sidewalks were filled with all the people that I'd ever met. And they were yelling "Hey Matt, won't you come down and join in on this?" So I did, in a run, but by the time I got there everyone was gone. Everyone except for my Dad & Mom and they spoke to me. They said "Don't you hear our whispering everyday when you wake up? Don't forget to live your life because we love you. Yeah, we love you very much."

    Because everyone's afraid for their world to end. It's a secret song we all sing up in our heads, that says "let me fall in love, or at least pretend we'll spend the rest of our days up in michigan." Don't let my life become the past until i'm ready to let it rest. Is that really so much to ask? To walk to the end and then come back?
