I am not here to tear us apart but I am feeling like the hole in your heart you filled in With the chill wind that brought us here All alone as we disappear Give up the ghost the past has come to haunt you Give up the most the past has come to want you Time is just a story we tell Time is just a long farewell Don’t lose control to the dark of the night Fell in love with a writer She doesn’t write anymore Fell in love with a stranger He’s not a stranger anymore And be my broken valentine And be my broken valentine Do you love me most where the future finds you Do you love me, ghost, the future will remind you Time is just a word for waiting Time is just anticipating Don’t lose control to the dark of the night Fell in love with a writer She doesn’t write anymore Fell in love with a stranger He’s not a stranger anymore And be my broken valentine And be my broken valentine Knock me over with a flower Break me free with a daisy Beat me up with a buttercup Remember me with a peony Inspire us with an iris Desire it with a violet With a violet, violet, violet With a violet, violet, violet, violet, violet Fell in love with a writer She doesn’t write anymore Fell in love with a stranger He’s not a stranger anymore And be my broken valentine And be my broken valentine

Hello, Darkness, step out of the light My old friend Have you been to the other side And are you alone again Am I me or am I you You and me’ve got nothing to do here Are you me or am I just a dream Got nothing to do but What about love when I’m in this place with you What about love when I’m in this place with you Forget and forgiveness Forget those that witnessed It’s only for you and me Hey, Catharsis, step into the light My old friend Have you been by my side And are you alone again Am I me or am I you You and me’ve got nothing to do here Are you me or am I just a dream Got nothing to do but What about love when I’m in this place with you What about love when I’m in this place with you Forget and forgiveness Forget those that witnessed It’s only for you and me

What do you do when you haunt an empty house With dreams of eternal unrest and, Boo Are you lonely, too Boo, are you lonely, too There’s no love in the world (of the dead) And a flower like you can’t die in a place like this Beneath the sheet of loneliness And I’m a ghost of consequence And this heart’s about to break How do you do when you are see-through With nothing but love in your chest, now, boo Are you lonely, too Boo, are you lonely, too There’s no love in the world (of the dead) And a flower like you can’t die in a place like this Beneath the sheet of loneliness And I’m a ghost of consequence And this heart’s about to break

Descend into the madness Where’d we go in all the sadness I want you to know You’re too lovely for this world Porcelain shards in my hands I want you to know Vanity is justified in love Keep me in the shadows Ghost memory haunting me again Haunting me again Keep me in the shadows Ghost memory haunting me again Haunting me again Go on, we’ll be okay Go on, we’ll be okay Go on, we’ll be okay She looks into the mirror And seeks to find a way out I want you to know Into the dawn of a new day Reflection’s all we have I want you to know Vanity is justified in love Keep me in the shadows Ghost memory haunting me again Haunting me again Keep me in the shadows Ghost memory haunting me again Haunting me again Go on, we’ll be okay Go on, we’ll be okay Go on, we’ll be okay Ghost as a memory A daydream A secret Brought to the light again Vanity is justified in love Keep me in the shadows Ghost memory haunting me again Haunting me again Keep me in the shadows Ghost memory haunting me again Haunting me again Go on, we’ll be okay Go on, we’ll be okay Go on, we’ll be okay

As I look up to the sky, the darkness sings to me Is there anyone out there I said, is there anyone out there And the muse comes out at night Don’t try to signal her by light She’s all alone and the walls white Fall into the lightness of silence We were silent as ghosts As long as we’ve got each other we don’t need the others One step closer to the end One step closer to the end So long now, everything to dust So long now, and I’m sleeping with the lights on every night What if I vanish Calling out in the dark Am I the only one out here I said, am I the only one out here And the muse comes out at night Don’t try to signal her by light She’s all alone and the walls white Fall into the lightness of silence We were silent as ghosts As long as we’ve got each other we don’t need the others One step closer to the end One step closer to the end So long now, everything to dust So long now, and I’m sleeping with the lights on every night They’re calling us Can’t you hear it And the muse comes out at night Don’t try to signal her by light She’s all alone and the walls white Fall into the lightness of silence We were silent as ghosts As long as we’ve got each other we don’t need the others One step closer to the end One step closer to the end So long now, everything to dust So long now, and I’m sleeping with the lights on every night

You used to wrap yourself in the stories you used to tell And everything still ends And we all still die one day I’m coiled like a spring about to break And I’m bringing you face to face with your fears Forgive yourself for your tears, and I woke up and you were gone My arms can’t hold on anymore And nothing lasts in this place Hold me just a little bit closer Take my hand and my attention We can fall in love again The revenge of the lonely Once we gazed the stars Now we stare into the abyss And the condition of loneliness is killing us I can feel the scream closing in I lost her to a dream and then again she speaks Been locked in the room for weeks I woke up and you were gone My arms can’t hold on anymore And nothing lasts in this place Hold me just a little bit closer Take my hand and my attention We can fall in love again The revenge of the lonely

When we were young we tied flowers, each one, stem to stem The precious ones we kept When we young we spied robins, each one, empty nest The precious ones we kept These things I cherish My golden treasure chest Leave me breathless Take me back to the days gone by Beat, beat inside of my chest And I heard a rumor, little bird, that you never loved I can see it clear now That you’re gone When we were young we cried werewolf, each one, false alarm The precious ones we kept When we were young we died almost, each one, open eyes The precious ones we kept These things I cherish My golden treasure chest Leave me breathless Take me back to the days gone by Beat, beat inside of my chest And I heard a rumor, little bird, that you never loved I can see it clear And I heard a rumor, little bird, that you never loved I can see it clear now That you’re gone Don’t trick yourself because it’s easy You’ll never get that feeling out of me Ashes to dust because it’s easy You’ll never get that feeling out of me Always for love because it’s easy You’ll never get that feeling out of me Always for love because it’s easy You’ll never get that feeling out of me And I heard a rumor, little bird, that you never loved I can see it clear And I heard a rumor, little bird, that you never loved I can see it clear now That you’re gone

Turn the radio on and turn the lights out Turn the radio on and turn the lights out Dance, dance it away Dance, dance it away We’re all ghosts living in the shadows Because we don’t know how to go on We’re all ghosts living torn and tattered Because we don’t know how to go on So let’s dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness And just dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness You’re just a sign and a whisper away When the past is almost gone We can all be a masquerade When the past is almost gone So let’s dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness And let’s dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness We gotta dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness And just dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness Got a bullet and a huge heart Don’t make me cry Let’s dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness You gotta dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness We’ll all dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness And just dance in the darkness Dance in the darkness
9.
Leave your skeletons closeted They’ve gone dark ‘Tween you and I This is the time where we begin Open the door, let me in Got a lantern and a good heart I’m waiting for you, now And bring it to the light Kiss me like you mean it We’re better together when you mean it We’re slightly damaged but we’re not over Mismanaged but we’re not over Is this the time where it all ends Open the door, let me in Got a lantern and a good heart I’m waiting for you, now And bring it to the light Kiss me like you mean it We’re better together when you mean it We’re slightly damaged but we’re not over Mismanaged but we’re not over Nothing but love will return us Kiss me like you mean it We’re better together when you mean it We’re slightly damaged but we’re not over Mismanaged but we’re not over I wanna be right there next to you
10.
I look into your eyes I see my own paradise But it’s nothing at all You look down at your feet You think it’s all complete But it’s nothing at all My life’s on the rise It’s not a surprise And there’s nothing at all I’ve got a new hand It’s time to take a stand Be a new man Be a new man And my heart keeps beating, beating And my feet keep leaving, leaving And my heart keeps beating, pleading Why don’t you Why don’t you I reach down for your wrist I feel our lifelines kiss But it’s nothing at all You reach out for your sleeve You’ve got your heart to believe But it’s nothing at all My life’s on the rise It’s not a surprise And there’s nothing at all I’ve got a new hand It’s time to take a stand Be a new man Be a new man And my heart keeps beating, beating And my feet keep leaving, leaving And my heart keeps beating, pleading Why don’t you Why don’t you
11.
This ghost I’m following doesn’t make a sound for me Doesn’t leave a trail for me And doesn’t pretend We’re all stories in the end We’re all stories in the end Wrap you in fairytale dreams Head out the night Somewhere out there The light is a friend, again We’re all stories in the end We’re all stories in the end Are you happy now or then This love is too big to fail Too big to fail Too big to fail Love is too big to fail Too big to fail Too big to fail This could be the last of fiction So tell me something you’ve been missing Tell me the things that scare you, and We’re all stories in the end We’re all stories in the end Are you happy now or then And love is too big to fail Too big to fail Too big to fail Love is too big to fail Too big to fail Too big to fail Are you happy now or then We’re all stories in the end And love is too big to fail Too big to fail Too big to fail Love is too big to fail Too big to fail Too big to fail
