The Sky Isn't Listening

This song is by Backseat Goodbye and appears on the album Nightmares Are for Dreamers (2006).

Darling I think it's time we leave
It's really coming down out there
And you are too
From this evening so full of life
So full of friends we never knew we had
We're just a couple of kids
Lost in November's kind grasp
Yeah it'll come and we'll go
Forever never seemed so close
As when you put your hands in my pockets
And said "I'm quite fond of you kid
I think we'll be just fine
You keep the sky, I'll settle for that look in your eyes." and I know it's been a long day
But you're still alive
So you've got nothing to complain about tonight
We can walk if you'd like
Or spin in circles I don't care
Either way I'm in love with where we're going
And the streetlights that lead us there
Will whisper in our ears
Sweet nothings about how they wish they we're alive during the daytime
Darling I think it's time we believe
The things they said were never true
'Cause look at this, yeah look at me look at you
We wear our flaws like a scarf
And count backwards because we can
There's no need for reasons in the winter seasons (this year)
We're all too cold to care
We're all too lost to lie
We're all a little under the weather
We're all living to die
You say too much of a bad thing
Can never do one right
I say it's all in bad timing
Yeah just turn off the lights
Let the moonlight lead the way
Sing a song or two, I'd say
It'll clear up soon there's no need
To call it a day
I know I'm not one
To question life and how we live it
But I don't care I'm gonna do it any way
I don't give damn what you have to say
Yeah I'll speak as I please
I'll walk on water I don't mind
Getting my feet a little wet to prove I'm right
Those worries only run so deep
Your doubt can't save you from the truth
So caught up in the memory
You don't know what to do
Well I'll tell you in a word or two
"Give up"
It's not worth it to save yourself
You might as well save someone else
And no I'm not talking about death
Or god and the other fairytales you love
This is a fucked up place your living in kid
And all you need is love
