lyrics

I close my eyes and the lights appear
I watch them and wish you were here
It's only time, time separating us
I wonder why as I gather dust
And the lights all spin while my life grows thin

Paper dolls with the edges burned
I think back wondering what I've learned
The same mistakes, same safe and narrow path
Footprints lead away from the aftermath
And the lights all shine, but my life's not mine

They shine - suggestions of color fading through shades of grey
They shine - cold and indifferent, but with me every day
They shine - floating, moving, always so far away
They shine

I close my eyes and the lights are there
Offering different paths if I'd only dare
Shadows call as I fall asleep
I'd risk it all, but the water's deep
Could I learn to swim as the lights go dim?
