Why'd I have to break what I love so much?
It's on your face, and I'm to blame, I need to say,
It's all me,
In my head.
I'm the one who burned us down,
But it's not what I meant.
Sorry that I hurt you,
I don't wanna do, I don't wanna do this to you.
I don't wanna lose, I don't wanna lose this with you.
I need to say, hey,
It's all me, just don't go,
Meet me in the afterglow.
It's so excruciating to see you low.
Just wanna lift you up and not let you go.
This ultraviolet morning light below,
Tells me this love is worth the fight.
We were in the backseat,
Drunk on something stronger than the drinks in the bar,
"I rent a place on Cornelia Street"
I say casually in the car.
We were a fresh page on the desk,
Filling in the blanks as we go.
As if the street lights pointed in an arrowhead,
Leading us home.
And I hope I never lose you, hope it never ends,
I'd never walk Cornelia Street again.
That's the kind of heartbreak time could never mend,
And baby, I get mystified by how this city screams your name
And baby, I'm so terrified of if you ever walk away
I'd never walk Cornelia Street again
I don't wanna look at anything else now that I saw you.
I don't wanna think of anything else now that I thought of you.
I've been sleeping so long in a twenty-year dark night,
And now I see daylight.
I only see daylight
Cornelia Street, Afterglow, Daylight
