lyrics

Wake me up silently darlin
But sing me back to sleep
I wanna feel like I got one more night
In your dreams

Build me up quietly darlin
But break me when I'm weak
I wanna feel like I'm not just a light
On a screen

Cause I got a ways to go
Til I'm here
I got a ship to burn
Til the water runs clear
I got a life to live
But I don't feel like
Counting the years

Forget what I say when I'm starving
Just feed me when I blink
I wanna be lost
I don't want to know everything

Love me to death when I'm lifeless
Remind me that I bleed
But If it's all a dream
I'll never wake up so relieved

Cause I got a ways to go
Til I'm here
I got a ship to burn
Til the water runs clear
I got a life to live
But I don't feel like
Counting the years
-
Shake me up when I'm a sure thing
And point my toes back home
I'm wondering how
You taught me to love the unknown

Because I had a ways to go
But Now I'm here
I had a ship to burn
But Now the water runs clear
I had a life to live
But I gave up on
counting the years
