With Words As Bright As The Sun

hey there blue eyes.
i'm not through with you.
for 20 years i held my tongue, held it tight.
but now it's time to run.
gonna not look back for nothing and no one.
i'm gonna get lost for good.
i'm gonna leave you motionless.
with words as bright as the sun.
it's like that time last week.
when you thought everything was alright.
but no one was alright.
and i can't help it if you can't look back.
so you know you've got the past to thank for the way you act.
so don't blame it on me or all the books you've read.
it wasn't them who pushed those words through your lips.
i can't believe you're still worried about 10 years from now.
save existentialism for prom night you're still just a kid.
see now you're choking on hello.
when i've already said goodbye.
don't get caught up in a daydream now.
you've been stuck in the dark, 'cause you're still looking for that light.
that you'll never find.
so don't sell your soul 'cause you believe in ghosts.
take a couple days off we'll head out on the road.
so you can see a few towns with a whole new face.
save forever for the fairytales, 'cause it ain't real.
why are you always asking why?
reasons are beautiful, but you don't need them to live your life.
step out side for an hour or two.
just stare at the sky you got nothing better to do.
and then you can finally say.
you saw something beautiful today.
i saw a kid outside last night.
he was crying so i asked him why.
he said "i don't want to live anymore mom and dad are fighting and me i'm lying to myself again."
i said "boy you're only 5 years old you've got a lot to live."
he said "boy you're only 20 years old and you've never lived."
and we laughed.
and we talked about tomorrow.
how we hoped eventually we could smile again.
then morning came.
we were smiling again.
look at that.
who needs miracles when you've got words as bright as the goddamn sun in the sky?
