I hear people talking
As I walk in the streets
They’re saying he’s not
What I need him to be
So I walk along and
Next thing I see
A poster with
‘He’s not the one for me’
But all I can think is
What if in our ‘we’
I am the one who is
not right for me
You are glass that fell down
You’re a king with no crown
You’re a sea with no water
You’re a book with no author
You say please don’t let them see
The broken glass keeps hurting me
You say it’s too much you have on your plate
So instead you expect me to carry your weight
And I want to help, I’ll do what I can
But you have to remember that I’m just a man
What you need I wish my love could do
But me and my love can not rescue you
The way you stand
The way you sit
The way you secretly laugh for a bit
You’ve been hurt
You’ve been broken
And yet your heart is wide open
You think no one sees
You think no one cares
But that is really just not fair
Because I see
Because I do
My heart is filled by just looking at you
Grab your coat
And take some food
Pick a boat
It’d do you good

Don’t you plan
Your destination
I know you can
But let creation

Take a trip
Inside your mind
And let the ship
Be yours to find
The wind was gazing through the window
Curtains dancing in the night
Blowing away my biggest sorrows
Waking a feeling deep inside

Never had I felt more alive
Then right there on my well aged bed
Not even thinking about the things
The things that I had never had

‘Cause while outside the wind was storming
Inside it brought me genuine grace
Stayed in this dark room way too long
Until the fresh breeze touched my face

From a distance she seems normal
But from closer you can see
That she has a little something
Like her mind inside is free
You can see that she is dreaming
Fantasizing something great
And for a moment it almost seems
Her dreams are lifting up the weight
All those cares and all those worries
That she like everybody has
Are fading for a tiny moment
Like she hurts a little less
You take a step towards her
Cause you feel a bit amazed
And as you watch her very carefully
Her mind is screening on her face
For it’s in her eyes that you find galaxies
And stars just shining all around
Thousands of beautiful new colors
Waiting for her to be found
At first you think this girl is crazy
Totally lost her good old sense
But when you think about it better
You find you’re putting up a fence
Although her mind’s not realistic
And she dreams bigger than could ever be
You realize without this girl
You would of never dreamed as if
you’re free.
