Now I'm going to play an album All about the falling leaves About all the parks in autumn Walking through the golden trees And from the slowest room to the fast hall I'll only play the ones that make you sing So you can shake, you can shake I'll turn it to eleven And I'll play it like it's five When everyone starts leaving We will sing your favorite one We'll only sing the good ones good ones We'll only sing the ones that make you cry So you can shake, you can shake I'll keep you awake through the summer nights I'll keep you away from the ruthless lights If you can keep me breathing If you can take the sun from feeding I'll take you away through the melting sky I don't know the way but I know where to fly When all the hope is fleeting Silence from the noise of living So you can shake, you can shake

Old sheets, ghostly through my window Can't shake the thought of you Cool and towering Mythic through the roof I've got miles to sing about you Got miles to hear from you Real, peaceful, lethal You're soft like gentle fire You're soft like gentle fire I don't want to go I didn't feel so fun I don't want it to be so long But if I knew that you would go So cold, polite, and wild I don't want to go I don't want to be too far Take me Put me by your side Take Me Right inside your eye I have butterflies to see you Don't know where I would start Evil and fevered You're far and I misfire You're far and I miss fire I don't want to go I've never felt so fine I don't think it's been that long But if I really want to glow And I can go so slow I want to be I want to be afloat

So I sat down here to think of of all the choices that we made of what I'll bring myself to say before the road takes you away I'll build myself again So when you come back you can tell That everything that's nice was in our stars was always ours I don't ever want to feel alone with you How much time has passed And we were still the same And we are still jumping around And being different every day We have some time to think Of how we want the world to spin Of how we want to start Of how we want to end But I don't ever want to be a stranger Will you ask me if I want to go? Even when you really know that I will just stay home I would love to be invited If you wanted me to be your teammate Would you come around to play along, to fly and thrill me There are words I can't imagine now Now our path has been extended Now our play won't always be pretending There's nowhere else where i can I see myself But I don't ever want to break your heart again So I asked myself before If I would hold your head If all those things you said were always tied to me Now i'm walking in a vortex Cause maybe you don't know And you know I don't know at all It doesn't matter anyhow Cause I don't ever want to miss out again Will you ask me if I want to go? Even when you really know that I will just stay home I would love to be invited If you wanted me to be your teammate Would you come around to play along, to try and feel me There are worlds I can't imagine now And there's nothing here concerning me And as close as how we want to be Because everything keeps hurting anyway I don't ever want to feel alone with you

Here it comes, back down, momentary Here it comes, polite and ordinary Like an old friend, like a storm A forgotten childhood toy Takes me back, twists my insides, gives me hope Makes me cry, makes me useless, gives me joy Oh I can't control myself when you're around Won't you please, leave me alone There I go, outside, empty handed Heavy bags, confused, noisy canvas Trying hard to keep you out I am fine with what I've found But not you, you remind me what I lost All the youth, all the trust I left behind Oh I can't give in to all your dissonance Won't you please, stay out of sight So I'll go, awake every morning So I'll go, alert to your charms I won't let you in tonight Your pathetic black and white Has gone bland, has grown tired, cold and sad Just a masked faceless coward looking back Well I won't be that person anymore Won't you close your eyes, goodbye Won't you close your eyes, goodbye

Are you awake? Are you still thinking about eternity? the human race? the little monster hiding down the street? Well it's still early if you want to take a run around the block Well I'm still drowsy but I'll show you anywhere around the town Well it's still warm out if you want to stay in bed until it's dark Well I'm still shy but I don't mind if we go out and have some fun I was still wondering if I'd get to see you When you're back home you're always so mysterious You'd have no time to set aside for me, but no I have to ask myself if I'm delirious I thought inside your strange and tall experience You'd have no love to set aside for me, but no, me, but no Did you escape? Are you still finding your identity? A brand new face? A little closer to neutrality? Well you would never trust a northern star to tell you where you are Well I'm still lost because I've taken every turn when it goes right It's not surprising you would find me when I don't know where we are You're only passing but we get to be cold fire until it dawns I was still wondering if I'd get to see you When you're back home you're always so mysterious You'd have no time to set aside for me, nut no I have to ask myself if I'm delirious I thought inside your strange and tall experience You'd have no love to set aside for me, but no, me, but no
