Paint the Night

Every day above ground is a good day, so they say
As long as you’re smiling, as long as you’re happy
All the clouds will fade away and blown away
On gentle breezes of careless love, of whispered lies in the dark
Yet you hold onto these empty thoughts
And chase your dreams through quiet streets
In the end you hurt yourself, and you hurt me
I need you to open your eyes
See yourself and see me

There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
There is no place I won’t go to be with you
You’re the sun and the moon
And the sky when we paint the night

Now the final breath is drawn and sleep becomes
Trapped inside our dreaming minds, living life, living blind
I need you to open your eyes
See yourself and see me
I’ve worked too hard to walk away
Every night, every day

There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do
There is no place I won’t go to be with you
You’re the sun and the moon
And the sky when we paint the night

In dark valleys I rest my head
In frozen clouds I make my bed
You look at me and in your eyes
I see disbelief
Tell me when, in the light of truth
You will have faith in me?


It’s all I ask.
