lyrics

How can it be this way?
I’m on top of a fucking mountain
See the lights stretch down below
Assimilated, guided by the day
Today
‘Cause honestly tomorrow’s miles away
And what I’d give to just stay here forever and take this scenic view with you

My lungs can barely breath
And if I fall, will you catch me?

We’re at the top of the world and bracing ourselves, bracing ourselves to get higher yet

I said be careful when standing close to the edge
I didn’t want nothing to happen unexpected or we’ll end up dead
A part of me is wondering how the hell we will get down
It doesn’t seem to matter though
Right now

‘Cause I’m alive
I’m alive for the first time
And I can clearly see the median between the colors of your eyes

The way they shine off of the snow and sky
The little things, the little things that happen between you and I
These ropes have snapped along with all the beauty that’s attached

Just rest your head
We’re racing through the sky
Falling to demise
Sit back and dream
We dream in different colors
The colors of your eyes

At the top of the world
And bracing ourselves, bracing ourselves for impact
I said be careful when standing close to the edge
And now we’re falling very fast to our disaster
Just like I said
And I can clearly see the median between the colors of your eyes

(To my surprise)
