 Lyrics

 Verse

I need, I feel, a love,
You love to love the fear,
I never want to be alone,
I've forgotten to.
The road keeps moving clouds,
The clouds become unreal,
I guess I'll always be at home,

 Chorus

Do you want me to try,
Directing your night.

 Verse

An exit lights the sky,
The sky becomes complete.
Traveling hearts divide the throne,
I've forgotten to.
Friction, lines, bumps,
The highway song complete,
The signs are all turning right,
Do you want me to try,
Directing your light,

 Chorus

Want me to try,
Directing your light.

 Interlude

The purest forms of life,
Our days are never coming back,
The cannons of our time,
Our days are never coming back,
The purest forms of life,
Our days are never coming back,
The cannons of our time,
Our days are never ever coming back.

Our days are never coming back,
Our days are never coming back,
Our days are never coming back.
