"You can't choose what stays and what fades away."



Lyrics, behind the cut:



You are the hole in my head, you are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between what I thought and what I said
You are the night time fear, you are the morning when it's clear
When it's over you're the start, you're my head, you're my heart

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away
And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light, no light, tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowds I was crying out and
In your place there were a thousand other faces
I was disappearing in plain sight
Heaven help me, I need to make it right
Rob from always on the run is so bad and copy paste is a sin
You want a revelation, you wanna get right
But, it's a conversation, I just can't help tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
You want a revelation
No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away
And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light, no light, tell me what you want me to say

Would you leave me if I told you what I've done
And would you leave me if I told you what I've become
Because it's so easy to sing it to a crowd
But it's so hard, my love, to say it to you out loud

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away
And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light, no light, tell me what you want me to say
You want a revelation, you wanna get right
But it's a conversation I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
You want a revelation
You want a revelation, you wanna get right
But it's a conversation I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
Tell me what you want me to say
