Tonight tonight the city sleeps I know the secrets that it keeps I know the secrets that it holds I know the stories left untold Tonight tonight the clouds will burst release the acid rain I wonder if it is enough to break these iron chains I wanna feel loved I wanna feel loved Tonight tonight the skies are filled with countless falling stars An ode to love that has been spilled in our attrition wars Tonight tonight the tide has left not leaving anything of worth But if all property is theft then who owns planet earth? I wanna feel loved I wanna feel loved Tonight tonight the clouds will break and shower us with kindness Will it wash away the dust A cure for our blindness? Tomorrow morning we will wake There will be no exceptions Will that dawning day be our shot at redemption? I wanna feel loved I wanna feel loved I wanna feel loved

Our lives beneath a dying sun before we've begun we fall apart. No happy ends in final movie scenes at least in the ones I've seen we fall apart. Will we change before we fall? And will someone hear our call? Will our essence be the glue that makes us whole and pulls us through? Like leftover nuclear submarines blown to smithereens we fall apart. Like plutonium like titanium like uranium we fall apart. Will we change before we fall? And will someone hear our call? Can we count on our souls to pull us through and make us whole? Will the great pursuit of happiness, of always more and never less, be enough to pull us through? Will the perfect world in magazines, the happy ending movie scenes, be enough to pull us through? Will a little sunshine on rainy days and traveling through hyperspace, be enough to pull us through? And will all the things we're dreaming of and a little snippet of your love, be enough to pull us through?

From this place that you call home to the corner of the street you can find someone to love but not someone you need From the Arctic snow fields to deserts filled with dust you can find someone to hide behind but not someone to trust It's not so far from here There are plenty other trees in the forest There are plenty other fish in the sea You'll find love everywhere you're going but you'll never find another me From the old world known as Europe to the United States you can find someone to hold but not someone who waits From the windy town of Wellington to Trafalgar Square you can find someone to kiss but not someone who cares It's not so far from here There are plenty other trees in the forest There are plenty other fish in the sea You'll find love everywhere you're going but you'll never find another me From the deepest ocean trenches to the top of the Kilimanjaro You'll never find another me And I'll never find another you

In the darkest of days In the darkest of hours We won't give in 'cause what we lack in power we make up with friendship Losing your way Your head starts to spin The unstable ground The problems you're in are mere words in the wind 'Cause I feel loved when you are by my side Together, the future's looking bright You stretch out your hand showing a smile The wind in your hair and just for a while this world's a little closer to heaven The loveliest thoughts I believe I can fly with clouds passing by I just can't deny This world's bathing in sunshine 'Cause I feel loved when you are by my side Together, the future's looking bright 'Cause I feel loved when you are by my side Together, we can make things right In times of need in times of doubt Don't give in but keep giving out, keep giving out

Away, let's get away 'Cause you know the feeling never stays Falling out -- calling on -- thoughts that are inside me Never had -- anyone -- able to oblige me Never met -- anyone -- capable to tie me To tame the beast -- try at least -- cage the love inside me Away, let's get away 'Cause you know the feeling never stays Rest a while -- carry on -- souls they've got to wander 'fore they die -- of the weight -- of feelings that they're under You say you -- understand -- but your thoughts they ponder Y'only see -- an escapee -- all the things I squander Away, let's get away 'Cause you know the feeling never stays

When you've given all you can but nothing works out right Time is slipping through your hands even if you close them tight This is what you get when all else fails The shit has hit the fan Only dust and vapor trails There goes your master plan But why waste time on things you hate When love is hope that never fades When you walk on sinking sand and hope is out of sight and there's no helping hand to guide you through the night When all you see outside is a blackened sky The sunny day they promised was just another lie But why waste time on things you hate When love is hope that never fades How you'd love to burn these thoughts down How you'd love to make them pay If you hang on to your anger You'll end up nowhere anyway

I wanna be a commercial I want you to like me and hate me at the same time I want to be a rehearsal I wanna practice so I know that in the end I'll be fine And there's a thin line between crazy and sane, but it has been washed away by the rain You feel me up like I'm a soft wall You feel me up like I'm a soft wall Like you can cuddle my secrets straight out of my soul And there's a thin line between crazy and sane, but it has been washed away by the rain Would you tear my chest apart and warm my hoarfrost heart

If I were like the sun I'd be sailing through the cosmos Just like cold nuclear fusion Is light speed only an illusion? Mother Earth is getting nearer She can scream but I can't hear her There's a vacuum between us There are too many miles between us

There ain't a minute I don't think about the dreams we used to chase Hope has left the planet earth floating deep in outer space now And with your screams you've betrayed the quietest of all four seasons If you don't learn to love yourself you'll run out of valid reasons Won't you break the silence and tell me how you feel Break the silence And turn these shattered thoughts into something real Walk in silence through the night like Navy Seals on secret missions Who will save our unborn kids from commercial television Teenage mothers live their lives on cigarettes and fat-free diets Kids growing up to the sound of New York City ghetto riots Won't you break the silence and tell me how you feel Break the silence And turn these shattered thoughts into something real We and our cars driving down to wherever money takes us I don't know if we'll ever learn from all that bends but never breaks us Won't you break the silence and tell me how you feel Break the silence And turn these shattered thoughts into something real

Kids these days are growing up Growing up and growing older Running to their mothers All the things they've never told her Kids these days are wired to wired to electronic toys All work and no play Turns them into the dullest boys All the coins that they've been tossing All the borders they've been crossing Can't they see that what they're doing Puts them on a road to ruin Kids these days they miss the love The love and understanding that parents used to give when life gets too demanding All the borders they've been crossing All the coins that they've been tossing Can't they see that what they're doing Puts them on a road to ruin Road to ruin

Tonight tonight we burn the flag on a shoreline swept by waves Where undercurrents drag the filth of this world to the ocean floor A place where your excuses aren't needed anymore This is not the Golden Age, that's the plain and simple truth But we're in this together and that's enough to make it through Tonight tonight we're going down Looking for Atlantis and steal some rusty crowns Oh tonight tonight we'll rise again Somewhere in a quiet bay We were beggars all our lives but now we're kings for a day This is not the Golden Age, that's the plain and simple truth But we're in this together and that's enough to make it through The fires in our hearts still rage, we've kept the dream alive And if we keep on dreaming, I'm sure that we'll survive Tonight Tonight we'll rise again Somewhere in a quiet bay We were beggars all our lives but now we're kings for a day

When some days break you more than others make you whole When there's nothing more to see through the windows of your soul Black light shadows I can see I can see but I can't feel Never knowing if this song if this song is for real If you keep talking like that If that's all that's coming out It doesn't matter if you whisper It doesn't matter if you shout Never meant to last forever This was doomed from the start We're in this world together But we're oceans apart Late night rumors I'm alone The only one who hears all the small things he shines shines into my ears Stainless mornings waking up hasty kisses and goodbyes Only seeing what she whispers whispers to my eyes I wanted to know how far it could go I wanted to know how far it could go I wanted to know how far it could go I wanted to know how far it could go Never meant to last forever This was doomed from the start We're in this world together But we're oceans apart
