Everything Burns


A cold night
The fire wanes
Another drink
To keep me awake

Shadows on
This life I’ve made
What I’ve lost
And what I saved

But everything burns
Everything burns eventually

A big house
But an empty bed
I collapse into
And want you instead

In this light
Success can seem
Failure when
It keeps you from me

‘Cause everything burns
Everything burns eventually

Come back
You’re all I need, would you
Come back?
I’d trade anything if you’d
Come back…

‘Cause everything burns
Everything burns eventually

Goodbye at the End of the World

There are days
When it seems
Being lonely would be better
Than another night with you

But there are ways
To believe
If you tell it long enough
A lie becomes the truth

And we don’t have to talk about it
Why our eyes no longer meet
And we don’t have to talk about it
What this silence means

We can pretend that if the world should end
It’s enough we’d have a hand to hold
A final kiss as we plunge in the abyss
Could make us feel like we’d been whole
But that’s no way to live these days
So I say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

It’s a game
And we both play
Even though we know by now
They’re only empty moves

I’m afraid
To walk away
‘Cause when you’re on your own
There’s always so much more to prove

And we don’t have to talk about it
What we lost along the way
We don’t have to talk about it
What it costs for us to stay

We can pretend that if the world should end
It’s enough we’d have a hand to hold
A final kiss as we plunge in the abyss
Could make us feel like we’d been whole
But that’s no way to live these days
So I say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Pale Blue Dot

A mother’s voice and child’s cry
A heart that pounds just like the tide
The sound of thunder, sound of rain
A solitary voice in pain

It’s all so much
It’s all so much

And all we are
All we’ve ever been
On a pale blue dot
Like the head of a pin

A cry of war and swell of pride
The helpless sigh of a love denied

It’s all so much
It’s all so much

And all we are
All our fears and dreams
On a pale blue dot
Floating in a sunbeam

All we are, all we are
Looked at from afar
All we are, all we are
Dust among the stars
All we are, all we are
Everything we’ve loved
All we are, all we are
Every drop of blood

And all we are
All we ever knew
On a pale blue dot
Disappearing from view
