lyrics

I used to be a daytime street talker,
Had a place and I had a name.
Until I woke up from a smack-down kick to the face.

I felt I wasn’t doing all I could do,
And you were there with me.
These things don’t get better on their own,
You’ll have to burn your bridges free.

You know you’ll dance when you hear your song,
But you can only see when the light is on.
You think it’s over, but it’s just begun.
You can only see when the light is on.
You know I’ll jump when I hear the phone,
But you can only see when the light is on.
All that you’ve taken is almost gone,
But you can only see when the light is on.

The white washes on their pale grey backdrop
always seem to keep things in order.
‘Cause you can never tell that’s it’s fucked up as hell.

You know I’m just as scared as you,
And I want you there with me
With all the patience in the world,
I know you’ll never see.

(Chorus)

Can we go back now?
Can we go back now?
Can we go back now?
We can’t go back now.
Can we go back now?
We can’t go back now.
We can’t go back now.
We can’t go back now.

(Chorus)
