LYRICS


All Night

Waves are washing us away
In the mirror we start to fade
Call a friend to see a show
Can’t remember hwere to go

Sit alone and try to think 
Try to master everything
It takes a while to settle down
To find some new ground

(and you fall back)
Can we stay awake all night? 
(when I see you)
Can we stay awake all night? 
(and you fall back)
Can we stay awake all night? 
(when I say now, now, now)
Can we stay awake all night? 
(and you fall back)
Can we stay awake all night? 
(I’m searching wide)
Can we stay awake all night?
(and you fall back)
Can we stay awake all night?
(I’m asking now, now, now)

I’ve been waiting now for days
for you to answer either way
Tell me what you wanna see
Build a path from you to me

All I can do is passing time
All I can see is open wide
I’ll do anything it takes
To keep on waiting

Fever

I’m waiting for something
I’m cruising, I’m crushing
I’m sorry for nothing
I’m flying for wishes

I got too many ties
I got funerals on the mind
I got eyes to feed
I got eyes to feed
I ain’t seen you in weeks
You’re the only one that I need
So I might as well
So I might as well make plans

I’m waiting for something
I’m cruising, I’m crushing
I’m sorry for nothing
I’m flying for wishes

Well my drink’s been destroyed
I got no one else to avoid
I’m a mile away
I’m a mile away
So won’t you save my seat
Will you keep it on a leash
Will you hold your breath
Will you hold your breath for me

I’m waiting for something
I’m cruising, I’m crushing
I’m sorry for nothing
I’m flying for wishes

Fever’s gotta break
somehow
I know I gotta wait
I’m not proud

(I’m waiting)

Fever’s gotta break
somehow
I know I gotta wait
I’m not proud

Under My Skin

I got you under my skin
and I know you won’t go away
‘til I’m scratched from within

(She feels safe alone
She feels safe alone
She feels alone
But her eyes betray
They betray her deepest hopes)

You can try
I don’t mind
I don’t know
What you’ll find
