Lyrics

I wanted to paint those lines
Now I try to say them
I thought I could write those songs
And I even try to sing them

I wanted to draw from those times
Now I work hard to forget them

Why go through all the effort
Too much detail in my head
If you ask me it’s no bother
What else would I do instead

I tried not to pull from those times
There’s no way to forget them

But the sun still comes up
Always without warning
Late at night the moon is waxing
Somewhere just before the rising

I wanted to draw the line
Now I just paint around them
Colors bleed across the canvas
Why doesn’t it come together

But the sun still comes up
Always without warning
Late at night the moon is waxing
Somewhere just before the rising
Somewhere just
Somewhere just before the rising
