There’s a figure in the door way
And a light on in the hall
What’s that contrast that you needed
To discern the value of
Everything you’ve ever tried to love
And everything you’ve lost?
Just staring out your window
Waiting for the sun to set
To bring meaning to another day

Does knowing that I’ll die someday
Mean that I’m more alive?
And does love have any consequence
If you never were alone?
I’ve been running through my choices
Like a kid lost in a mall
Forty years spent in a desert
To qualify a promise land
I just want it to be worth it

So fix yourself up right
And find the time
I’ve been stayin’ up all night
I can’t make up my mind
About anything I’ve cared to keep
Or know about myself
It happens that I’m not that sure
But I wouldn’t lie to you

They’re turning on the lights outside
To welcome in the dark
I’ve got a debt to pay back to myself
For a love that I’ve destroyed
You know I had another dream
I didn’t wanna wake up from
Hope’s just a synonym for longing
But I’m hoping anyway
That what I want can be what I need

So fix yourself up right
And find the time
I’ve been stayin’ up all night
I can’t make up my mind
About anything I’ve cared to keep
Or know about myself
It happens that I’m not that sure
But I wouldn’t lie to you
