lyrics

Why did music play on Friday?
and why have I yet to make sense?
of why you were here and I was still back there
Still blurry and sadly content

I’ve got a million reasons
I believe half of them
the wayward better left
in a dream catcher somewhere
a subconscious blank stare
flying circle round my head
This firefly is fleeting it’s lit and it’s longing
to be at peace again
Just don’t stop your rambling your loving and your traveling
your heart can’t be kept

My sleep deprivation and the heat of the day
drove me straight to the lake
I want to be back there I want to go somewhere
and stop distraction from taking it’s place

If the moon is willing and the stars understand me
and you can still hear me I’ll take
the chance to be near you to write you to see you
and stare into your eyes all day

I’ve a million reasons and I believe half of them
I’m finding the words that I left
In knowing without saying
intuition’s gold day engrained in the life you’ve led
Now I’m running with affliction engulfed in affection
I’m sorting out the things that I’ve said
Just don’t stop your rambling your loving and your traveling
keep this close in Marquette

It might drive me crazy it might leave me aching
asking the same questions again
but with countless reasons and the time we’re allotted
there’s nothing left to expect

I’ve a million reasons and I don’t know half of them
I’m finding the words I left
Just don’t stop your rambling your loving and your traveling
Your heart can’t be kept
