Lyrics

small pieces of truth
whispered on the dance floor
lift the hazy window for a moment
fresh air makes you nervous

why'd you have to come around
and turn my whole world upside down
you're wrecking me and everything
you don't even know what you're doing

the pigment of your eyes
watercolor flourish, moonbeam blue
the smell of your breath each
day, I get more used to your presence

you're complicating things by being here
I wasn't planning on this
somehow you're getting into my thoughts
that piece of my heart I protect

what the fuck, what kicked up all this dust
taking me back to the places I left behind
the old life and times

I need to find my fantastic place the dream
don't try to take my dream away
when I grow up I want to keep my dream
in a leather covered box with a blue velvet lining

these simple things, let your heart feel
these quiet times, let your heart sing

what the fuck, what kicked up all this dust, you're
taking me back to the places I left behind
the old life and times
the old life and times
