lyrics

midnight to noon there's flowers on the table
and i love you, love you, love you while i'm able
to say it, i'll say it, i'll say it til the day that i die
when the sun comes up and the lights go down
i will run run run from the higher ground
won't be disappointed when you say we're going home
cause it's been six months and nothing is changing
i don't know if i'm growing, i don't know if i'm aging
if i'm stronger, braver, maybe just a bit less afraid
on the edge of sixteen and falling asleep on the city bus
i don't know who i am and i certainly
don't know where the hell i'm going

blue, i know that it's hard to be real
when the blood is on your hands and the world's beneath your heels
maybe you're just one for unconventional affection
but baby, that's alright, i'll be whatever helps you sleep at night

i forgive you for the words you said last night
i forgive you for the way you held on too tight
sorry i turned away, i didn't want to cry in front of you
we sat together on the centre of my bed
while you told me all the reasons you hate radiohead
but their record's on my turntable, that song's stuck in my head
your profile's built of shadows on my wall
and it's just so hard for me to take this all
in at once, you're sleeping and i'm wide awake
once the year's over i can't remember anything
all i ever do is sleep and sing
songs about places that i will never see

blue, i know that it's hard to let go
when it's all you've ever felt, it's all you've ever known
i keep my eyes on the ground, you keep your hand on my back
from when the sun rises to when the sky turns black

they broke you down so easily, why do you stand alone?
they tore you down so easily, why are you standing alone?
you say it's just a cycle of heartache, so why do you carry it on?
seven years old in a moonlit world, how did you make it alone?

blue, i'm sorry i can't be what you need
it's not easy to wake up, it's not easy to breathe
i ran for cover as your walls came crashing down
but you just let yourself crumble to the ground
