— Sara  Bareilles , Bright Lights and Cityscapes

Hold my breath and I’ll count to ten
I’m the paper and you’re the pen
You fill me in and you are permanent
And you’ll leave me to dry
I’m the writer and she’s the muse
I’m the one that you always choose
She will falter and gift her blame
And it’s starts all over again
Again again again

She is bright lights and cityscapes
And white lies and cavalcades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say maybe it’ll last this time
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I’m gonna love you
So right
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Shield your eyes from the truth at hand
Tell me why it’ll be good again
All those demons are closing in
And I don’t want you to burn
Nevermind what I said before
I don’t want any less anymore
You are carbon and I am flame
I will rise and you will
Remain

For bright lights and cityscapes
And landslides and masquerades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say, “Maybe it’ll last this time”
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance

And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

“All I could think about now, as night fell, was how much you can love made-up people, and how much you can miss them.”
