There's worlds beyond this city, and from our towering perspectives
They look so small from here (they look so small from here)
They look so small from here
You say you've found out who I am when you've just changed who I was,
Is it all that you expected? Am I all that you've expected?
Dear my love, this horrifying valentine reads no more time we'll spend pretending
Nights that we defined with sweat and tears, and our bodies trembling
We'll keep the fires burning, 'til one of us screams stop
Running, through all the times that she'll pretend she's running, to satisfy her dignity,
She'll bury herself deep, her eyes defiant so that they won't know she's
Running, and all the time demand perfection,
Break the walls for her agenda, crack a smile and offer up the
Satisfaction guarantee, she'll give to everyone but me,
Just give me what I want and nobody gets hurt
The satisfying things I'd give to you, but none of us could be this perfect
The terrifying things you said were true, you cross the line while I protect the
Days we spent nervous of life without purpose
Gazing on the world from high, watching as the small ones pass us by,
What's meaning without purpose?
Dear my love, this horrifying valentine reads no more time we'll spend regretting
Nights that we define with sweat and tears, and our bodies trembling
We'll keep the fires burning
Running, through all the times that she'll pretend she's running, to satisfy her dignity,
She'll bury herself deep, her eyes defiant so that they won't know she's
Running, and all the time demand perfection,
Break the walls for her agenda, crack a smile and offer up the
Satisfaction guarantee, she'll give to everyone but me,
Just give me what I want and nobody gets hurt
Still we're running, and still we hide from ourselves
Don't block it out and chase the night fall
