You've been concentrated, with the things you hated
For the sake of safety, you've found comfort in
Subtle pleasure, found in something better
Just the thought alone seems much too hard

"But the fear in me always grows
And I'm too scared of letting go
Oh it's familiar, to feel this
I ache to hold that moment dear...
But uncertainty leaves me tense
And transparency makes more sense
See for the pressure is lesser
And the fire inside's long been left cold"

If you drown the world in morbid thoughts
We'd all be left to die
There's still so much more
Don't pretend that what you have is good enough

There's nothing worth a second thought
You "needed it"?
Your hopes and dreams are everything
To make sense of this life your living in
Tempt the soul with something more
Believe in it
If your plans based on open hands
They're left empty in the end

All along you've been waiting for meaning to come
Was there ever a love before?
All the feelings suggested had answers
That you endlessly craved to hear
Such and idling sound
Left you stagnant and taut
Was there never a love before?
It's the warmth, not the fire, you should focus on

Desperate for the sound of a familiar voice
Make it full of hope
Make it feel like home

It's simple, it seems
It is not that it's too far from reach
Your intangible dreams will awaken your passiveness
From inside
