lyrics

Read guide lines
And adhere to them that they might get us by
First step pretend that everything is fine
The rest of the steps are impossible

Lay awake
Putting hopeless thought to hopeless thought that saves
Me from daylight reminding me that I
Was born to sleep late and fantasize

So I lie on my back for the canopy sky
And burn my eyes like it was my sun to admire
You're impossible and I'm alright

We could've been fine I never would've lost
But I knew you before I knew how to change
Born in the first decent light I ever saw
I've given up because you'll never change
Share my sunlight
If we're so alike why aren't you listening
Saying we're doing fine will never mean a thing

Shoreline drive
Where I'm harbouring my ghosts I tried to hide
Took my shoes off and rolled my ankles bare
Tempt the water but I'm never there

And I see
Silhouettes waltzing on the end of the pier
Cast out sails only waiting for a breeze
Or a pulse in the lake to teach them how to leave

So I lie on my back for the canopy sky
And burn my eyes like it was my sun to admire
You're impossible and I'm alright

We could've been fine I never would've lost
But I knew you before I knew how to change
Born in the first decent light I ever saw
I've given up because you'll never change
Share my sunlight
If we're so alike why aren't you listening
Saying we're doing fine will never mean a thing
