lyrics

I used to think of happiness as something you could buy
On the rocks or with a tonic, for a reasonable price
I’ve since seen my reflection in a dozen broken mirrors
But I’ve got this sneaky feeling that my bad luck’s just run dry
As we drove down unknown roads, the clock ticked away from midnight
Stopped and sat beneath the moon, no synthetic light in sight
The emptiness of the universe made us question who we are
B’t’you filled it up with meaning, and you left me seeing stars

We’ll take on the world, just you and me
Rewrite this clichéd script somehow
I’ve skipped to the end and the pages were blank
But that’s because we are the narrators now

I was getting drunk on spirits and writing serenades
To fabricated damsels that I hoped to someday save
But whatever inspirations I had drawn on, I’d still wake up
With a shit song, and hungover all the same
But you turned up out of nowhere, and you taught me how to feel
Not the love of lustful teens, but something tangible and real
And all the cheesy songs that I was once dead set against
Started moving me to tears, because they suddenly made sense

We’ll take on the world, just you and me
Rewrite this clichéd script somehow
I’ve skipped to the end and the pages were blank
But that’s because we are the narrators now
No longer beholden to dreams that aren’t ours
Not pawns on a chessboard, not crossed by the stars
We’ll take on the world, just you and me
Because we are the narrators now
