lyrics

I've got lot of phrases to try on you
This night won't be over until my words ring through
And maybe I'm eyeing those eyes of yours
You wore less to impress, but I want more

Let's find a happy ending
With the lights on from the start
They'll see the time that we're spending
But they won't tear us apart

Girl, you're looking lost
With that thousand-yard stare
I've been here too long
To let you fade away

I've got a backseat where I can take you there
I bet that look that you're wearing is accustomed to scaring away
But not me
(Not me)
I want to help you escape that dress
You wore less to impress but I want more

Rushing the entrance
Ditching our friends and
Staying until the show ends, just to have time
Swimming through bottles
Burning through our wallets
Hiding our feelings, looking for signs
Yeah I'm young, and full of hate
But that doesn't mean that you can't stay

Let's find a happy ending
With the lights on from the start
They'll see the time that we're spending
But they won't tear us apart

She got those open eyes, closed hearing
But it's not shut in theory
Her arms are far apart but she can't help but always see me
We got these hideaways and
Sometimes we hide for days and
Maybe I'm constantly amazed by who I share my sheets with
Incense burning white and it's turning to night
Not a backseat romance we prefer under skies
No lies
I can't decide if she's just too kind
But I can't help but wish that she'd try to look past my smile

And I could make this right
Your hands feel so worn
No dreams in shades of black
This could be all the past
Let me make this right

But something was misunderstood
It fell apart so fast
I woke up to your change of heart
An emptied bed
There was a part of me that cared from the start
And somehow I got lost
You wanted just a night of warmth
I wanted more

Stay
If you answered your phone then you'd know
Don't go
