lyrics

It was cold outside on the night that I first saw him
Early hours of the morning
I was walking, moving forward
These walls would tell if you got them talking
Mmm
I wanna be fearless all the time
I wanna be fierce, I want to fight
I don’t wanna be terrified

But I see a figure
Just out of sight
Could’ve sworn it was you, but
No that couldn’t be right
Thought once would be enough but you can’t do without that
So I’ll look in your eyes

And I can’t believe it’s real
I don’t know what to feel
My arms stuck to my side
Beyond my wildest dreams and I
Don’t wanna move I’m not confident that
You won’t eat me whole and I’m not fast
Enough, wouldn’t put it past you
Can’t wake up

Can’t believe we’re here
You’re just what I should fear
But when our worlds collide
Beyond my wildest dreams and I
Don’t wanna move I’m not confident that
You’re gonna let me go and I’m not fast
Enough, wouldn’t put it past you
Can’t wake up

Mmmm can’t wake up, can’t wake up
Mmmm can’t wake up, can’t wake up
Mmmm can’t wake up, can’t wake up
Mmmm can’t wake up, can’t wake up

In a dream last night I would stand upon his shoulder
I would gaze upon the whole world, can’t confabulate all the sounds he makes and the time he takes to grow older
Mmmm
And so I pray for a dream that never ends
When the morning comes I fear again

Coz I see a figure
When I turn off the lights
And I’m both at my calmest
And I’m terrified
Thought twice would be enough but you can’t do without that
So I'll put up a fight

And I can’t believe it’s real
I don’t know what to feel
My arms stuck to my side
Beyond my wildest dreams and I
Don’t wanna move I’m not confident that
You won’t eat me whole and I’m not fast
Enough, wouldn’t put it past you
Can’t wake up

Can’t believe we’re here
You’re just what I should fear
But when our worlds collide
Beyond my wildest dreams and I
Don’t wanna move I’m not confident that
You’re gonna let me go and I’m not fast
Enough, wouldn’t put it past you
Can’t wake up

Mmmm can’t wake up, can’t wake up
Mmmm can’t wake up, can’t wake up
Mmmm can’t wake up, can’t wake up
Mmmm can’t wake up, can’t wake up
