Do you always wear your smile like this? Have you tried it from the side, like this? You’re the highlight of the show. Let’s live tonight like we’re myths. Do you always ride the vibe like this? Have you ever felt the hype like this? Be the highlights of the night. Kiss me through your sunset tears. I might, Tonight, Empty my conscious out, Invite you to newer heights, A modest view of the sprites, Tonight, I might.
We could sing songs Under a sun kissed sky Showered by red and violet While you strum your guitar A smooth varnished back It still has that one crack From being reckless and dumb But it’s just a faded memory Bouncing among the clouds Of our own thoughts
Everything would seem perfect But below the golden view Is a sea of darkness Hidden within my own soul Does it show? I don’t know...
It’s been growing so cold And it’s getting so old So if I let you in To see something besides what you knew Could you just hold me here Softly with kindness It would be everything I could ever want.
Headed straight for the exit Got the key around my neck Not waiting for what's next it Really doesn't matter, heck If I can just outrun it Keep ahead long enough Someday, I bet Though incredibly rough I'll see the sun set Without running past Sitting to enjoy it At long last

Jump, climb over the stones and keep going on the path. Just keep going, until you reach the finish line.
The sun set behind brazen city towers The gradient color scheme reminiscent of candy chromatography in the third grade It's one of the heaviest yet fleeting forms of memory The kind that simmers at the bottom of your chest for an hour But a deep breath and a purpose pushes it out Nostalgic about nostalgia Wishful for some sentimentality No matter how trite, you'll feel it - you'll revel in it Conquered by the thought of a past worth reliving
