lyrics

her sunset eyes tend to leave me hypnotized
i swear she’s in my mind
in the thoughts unread and the words unsaid
so tell me why it is then when i take a look and see
that those pretty eyes are just a thin disguise
for the shallowness beneath
i need more, i need more
i need more substance girl not more substances
your love is feeling so immense on sustenance
and the fake amends and let’s be friends
you can leave them at the door
cause from this day forth i’m gonna find my sorts
on something more
she’s looking back at me
but i think it’s time for us to say goodbye
the views been nice to see
but i think i’ve gotta leave those sunset eyes
so i packed my bags and i turned to leave
and you didn’t even ask me why
i was walking down the road and i looked up
and sure enough the sun was setting in the sky
but the pieces of our hearts don’t fit together can’t you see?
yours just isn’t quite as deep
and mine’s stuck feeling incomplete
now it isn’t all your fault it’s mine
for knowing things i shouldn’t
told myself i wouldn’t
so to go back now i just couldn’t
i need more, i need more
but when i touch your skin
i can’t begin to comprehend the empty hollowness within
it makes me cringe you’re made of tin
and the signs are clearly there as i move further and further
i swear i never meant to hurt you
but some things we just can’t work through
she’s looking back at me
but i think it’s time for us to say goodbye
the views been nice to see
but i think i’ve gotta leave those sunset eyes
so i packed my bags and i turned to leave
and you didn’t even ask me why
i was walking down the road and i looked up
and sure enough the sun was setting in the sky
