ghosts in the headlights



Headlights coming up fast
could almost believe heaven
is waiting on the other side
if I wasnít so high
running from the things
thatíll bring me glory
if only I could stick around
to find the upside to this loneliness

Cause I want to be there
at the end with you
like the moment of our deaths
was predestined to explode
into something beautiful

This life isnít worth much without you
your smile my saviour on the dark days
when there is no silver lining
to the midnight crows
picking out my eyes from the inside

And no one tells you love is like this
that itís a heart attack on a black-ice high-way
on a desert night
some place far from home
and if you could just learn
to steer through the fear
thereís dawn at the end of the white line
and you might find your way
to somewhere you belong

But this dark sky haven
offers no solitude tonight
waiting for a dead phone to ring †
where ghosts donít reside
in this temporary lifetime
and Iím scared to sleep
because Iím scared of dreaming
the things no psychic will say


Headlights coming up fast
could almost believe heaven
is waiting on the other side
if I wasnít so high
running from the things
thatíll bring me glory
if only I could stick around
to find the upside to this loneliness
without you

Itís time to wake up
