All We Know

It's all about youth, the urge to escape and love

Where's the morning star

Sitting warily in the distance

We can reach our hearts through the haze

But we stand and watch for this instant

Stop, look and feel this moment

 

Leave, leave today

We'll end up somewhere better

We'll run now and forever

Because all we know is bliss

The only way we're truly happy

 

We'll ignore the others around

We'll fall trying to be happy

We'll mess around, looking for a laugh

But with arms cross, they begin to sigh

Bliss is around, but guilty as charged

When misery becomes an alibi

 

I grab onto the remains and the bones

The waves and the shouts, the light of phones

I've only got your words to hold on to now

I've only got your kiss to saviour and enjoy

Oh woe to me, a lost and lonely little boy

 

Leave, leave today

We'll end up somewhere better

We'll run now and forever

Because all we know is bliss

The only way we're truly happy

 

The End
