As I was walking by the water,
I didn’t know if I’d be found,
I didn’t think that you would bother, I didn’t know you’d let me down,
I always thought you were a monster, I didn’t know you’d be so nice,
I didn’t think you’d be a goner,
You never asked for my advice.
House on the hill, house on the hill, Everybody get down, get down, House on the hill, house on the hill, Everybody calm down, calm down,
And I don’t know, and I don’t know, And all your ghosts, start to show,
I start to show, I start to show,
And I’m a ghost, and I don’t know.
A delusion so grand you believe it deceives you,
It’s beating within you, with all that you’ve been through,
You see through it all but it doesn’t crack, like plexiglass.
The guilt we share compares to time unwinding, disguising the rest, surprising the depths like a speck swallowed whole by the distance between unseen unbelieved in a dream.
All the bliss, all the kisses with pavement I missed sleeping rough when we choose to, not cause we have to, I’ll always choose you, I’ll never lose you.
When I was young I used to tear up,
I always thought you were a clown, And in the mornings we would get up, And in the evenings we’d get down, We had our moments, we had fire, We had to balance on thin ice,
I had my dreams I had desires,
I had some fun, I did alright.
Let’s get out of this house, And we’ll soar to the sky, We are no longer needed, No more reason to hide, Two spirits,
We don't belong,
We are no longer needed, Let's move on.
