lyrics

In this blistering heat I feel I could look at you forever
Giddy, lost my feet again
Painted stars on my ceiling to recreate that feeling
I can’t come down from this

Just the thought of one small kiss, my whole body just tingles
Can’t remember why I’m standing here
Like a daydream or hallucination, someone stop this vivid imagination
I can’t come down from this

Now you’ve trapped me here but I’m not another of your empty, heartless shrews
I’d be there kicking and screaming if I didn’t feel so bruised
I let you distract me from the peaceful content I once felt
And now I’ve slipped so far below I can’t seem to find the way out

Abandoned here. I’m crawling from underneath your reject pile
When I finally see daylight I’ll greet you with an all-forgiving loving smile
And I’ve been having nightmares about losing you but that won’t do

I could hold you endlessly to show how much you mean to me
Can’t you feel the beating of my heart?
I’d hold your hand, you’ll understand how no-one else could be my man
I can’t come down from this.

Abandoned here. I’m crawling from underneath your reject pile
When I finally see daylight I’ll greet you with an all-forgiving loving smile
I know you can shine. Save it for another time
Now I’m in a daze, some deep sleep but I’m awake
I’m here but miles away... every single day.

Can’t come down from this.
