We're walking in the city tonight Trying to avoid each other and avoid getting in a fight Just ignore those feelings inside Everything will work out fine We're walking in the city tonight Although the street we're walking down we're on opposite sides I can see we're thinking alike But everything will work out fine Not knowing where we're going tonight But if your feet wanna take us there then I'm coming for the ride If I feel like being compromised I'll give you a call sometime But when everything I say is wrong When everything we've ever had is gone Why even bother We're walking in the city tonight But when our feet gain more attention than each other's eyes Can't ignore those obvious signs Something's just not right Maybe we're heading to different places Or we've just realised yet that all we're wasting is some time If we'd listened to what's inside Everything would have worked out fine But when everything I say is wrong When everything we've ever had is gone Why even bother going on.

Black sky, yellow moon You got the feeling that it's come up too soon But when it comes into focus, you suddenly notice You're more lonely when you're by her side Black holes, shooting stars You'll never see them if you're looking too hard But if you just sit back wondering, you're sure to miss something And never notice them until your time's over Dark sky, the moon's high No clouds in the sky Go home, stay inside No hope in sight Don't say you wont try Don't hold it inside Don't say you wont try No hope in sight

I saw you happy once I even watched you smile You're not alone, you're not alone And you don't need someone With all your indignance The last thing could possibly need Another love, another love To pin your hopes on She made you happy once She even made you smile You weren't to know, you were alone Her problems were her own Think back to yesterday When all you could see was her Did she see you, did she see you Did she see no one Did she see no one Were you her no one To make her someone

What made you think you would get away with it How did you think I would never know You must have thought I was blind and stupid You see I was thinking the same of you I kinda thought I was being generous I should have taken the soonest possible out Then you convinced me that this is usual I gave you the benefit of the doubt So why are you running around with your hands over your eyes Wondering while this happens to you why it still comes as a surprise How did you think you would get away with it How did you think I would never see through you You must have waited till I got used to you You see I was waiting to see the truth So why are you running around with your hands over your eyes With some smile like you know what it's about but when it comes you still don't recognise that Oh no, it's coming to an end For you, oh how sad my friend Oh no, it seems your luck has changed How strange I kinda thought you were being humorous I never knew someone could be so damn mean You must have thought I was blind and stupid And you did a fine job of convincing me But oh no, it's coming to an end For you, oh how sad my friend Oh no, it seems your luck has changed Or had you had that arranged Oh no, it's coming to and end Which part of that don't you understand Oh no, it seems your luck has changed How strange

And another thing I was wondering tonight Will this wondering ever offer respite I still feel the cold wind from your sigh I still hear the silence in your cry I can feel a love has died tonight alone It's the other things that keep me awake at night When the wondering seems to gently subside I still see your cold heart through you eyes I can feel my sad mind sympathise I can feel my love has died and i feel fine It's the only thing that kept me safe in my mind Was the wondering if I'd come out alright I still feel the cold wind from your sigh I still hear the silence in your cry I can feel my love has died tonight alone

Never 02:45
I never wanted this I never wanted all of those things that you said I would need I never wanted you I never even knew who you were until I got in too deep Here we are, we've come this far To fake our affections would be so sad I'm willing to change my mind Unwilling to leave behind who I am to be some thing you invent I'm gonna need more time I gotta be sure that I'm still in love and not just feeling overwhelmed Here we are, we've come too far To change our directions would leave such a mess But you'll never see, or you just wont agree To change everything about me wont save us

Easy 03:24
I'm looking at you, you're looking right through All the promises I've been making Seems so easy to say, turn and look the other way But there's no use if I feel I'm faking this Let's go back to when we got things right Let's take back everything we said that night I started walking away, got tired of saying the same Kind of things just to make you understand It's got nothing to do with anything about you It's all inside my head as cliched as that sounds Let's go back to when we got things right Let's take back everything we said that night Coz, I don't want to be the one that didn't work out Coz now it seems like every time I'm trying I feel like I'm turning around Or backing down I'm going nowhere fast instead I'm slowing down And taking my time, taking my time It's easy to break up, but it's harder to make up my own mind Let's go back to when we got things right Let's take back everything we said that night Coz I don't want to be the one that didn't work out Coz now it seems like every time I'm trying I feel like I'm turning around Or backing down I'm going nowhere fast instead I'm slowing down And taking my time, taking my time

Look outside the sun is shining The sky is blue, but so are you It takes a while to fake a smile In the corners you back yourself into You look inside but won't confide in The people you keep yourself close to You're so unsure and insecure You have some idea, just no real view All that you know is all that you've learnt All you repeat is all that you've heard Coz you don't have opinions of your own There permanent loans retold word for word All that you know is all that you've learnt All you repeat is all that you've heard Coz you don't have opinions of your own There permanent loans retold word for word
