lyrics

Curiosity got to me, and now I'm here
Staring at the deepest desire of my heart
But it's only a reflection
It's nothing that can step out of the glass
Nothing that can step into my world
It's nothing real, no, it's not real

So why do I keep coming back
To the place where I'm painfully aware of what I lack
Because finally I can bear witness to
The life and love I never knew

So with this sinking ship I'll go down
Happily consumed by my dreams I'll drown

Used to live in a place where no one cared about me
And that was fine, thought that's just how it was
But I have come to realize that I don't have to be unhappy
I decide, yeah, I decide

So why do I keep coming back
To the place where I'm painfully aware of what I lack
Because finally I can bear witness to
The life and love I never knew

So with this sinking ship I'll go down
Happily consumed by my dreams I'll drown

Her familiar eyes, his untidy hair
Small glimpses of the future we'll never share
