lyrics

We could be anything – There’s so much happening
Safe in our little world - Nothing but love in return
We play the breathing game – We don’t have any shame
Love can do anything – Everyone feels the same way
Came from another world – I’m not just any girl
Fighting an ancient war – One that has been fought before
Science gone wrong again – Strap on your boots again
Looks like it’s war again – Just one more then it’s the end
While we were sleeping a bad moon had risen
They loaded their weapons They emptied the prisons
And stared at the future of chaos and panic
Where music is static and no one is magical
We married late at night – under the pale blue light
Sixteen and terrified – Shooting stars lit up the night
We were in love again – How is this happening
How can I understand – Kissed as the creek trickled by
While we were sleeping a bad moon had risen
They loaded their weapons They emptied the prisons
And stared at the future of chaos and panic
Where music is static and no one is magical
Waited for so long
A thousand years or more
Then you walked in my door
Always late for school
And you stared back at me
I thought you were so cool
When we come back again – would we just meet as friends
We’ll come back holding hands – Our love will always survive
While we were sleeping a bad moon had risen
They loaded their weapons They emptied the prisons
And stared at the future of chaos and panic
Where music is static and no one is magical
