lyrics

been here before
been clear before
i hear the forecast pray for rain
the Day is dead
you’re in my head

been up all night
watching pictures bright
try as I might, I just can’t sleep
i close my eyes
counting alibis
a lot like sheep

i see the moon
it’s mine alone
i watch sunset burn to the ground
i sing this tune
and shine along
one million dreamers thinking up, but slowly sinking down
we lie in beds we make
you’ve got to fall asleep to wake

my mind’s on fire
flames grow higher
my one desire like gasoline
the morning nears
with rain it clears
still I’m unforgiven

you’re in my head my empty bed
i tire instead of sleep

i see the moon
it’s mine alone
i see the eggshell smiling down
i think of you
and cry this song
one million voices singing out, but no one makes a sound
we burn but what’s at stake
you’ve got to fall asleep to wake
