Even in your silence it rings out The tallest endless wall of screaming sound I'm exploding Even in your hiding it can't be helped Brilliance spills out underneath your guarded door And it's so warm So when you're near me It's like I'm swallowed by the sun And in your eyes I am burning Fireflies in the summer sky A white flash like a thousand dreams alive And if you try you might just catch a few So why keep your world apart A star-bursting blast about to start Burning hard my nova love So when you're near me It's like I'm swallowed by the sun And in your eyes I am burning Fireflies in the summer sky A white flash like a thousand dreams alive And if you try you might just catch a few So why keep your world apart A star-bursting blast about to start Burning hard my nova love Let me into your world tonight I wanna feel your soul ignite Let me into your world tonight I wanna feel your soul ignite (I can feel you, I can feel you I can feel your heart I can feel your soul) I can feel you, I can feel you I can feel your heart, I can feel your soul (Love burning hard) I can feel you, I can feel you I feel your heart, I feel your soul tonight (Love burning hard) Oh and when you're near me It's like I'm swallowed by the sun And in your eyes I am burning Fireflies in the summer sky A white flash like a thousand dreams alive And if you try you might just catch a few So why keep your world apart A star-bursting blast about to start Burning hard my nova love Burning hard my nova love Burning hard my nova love

Your smile lights up the whole room It's so wild and blinding like the sun All warm and welcome like summer wind And you share it with everyone So why can't you smile in the mirror? You come home tired and beaten down But your eyes, they shine like a neon sign Wide open for all of the world to see Telling me it'll be all right Then why can't you smile in the mirror? You're such a generous soul Your love is never ending Your heart is out of control (Whoa-oh-oh) And it's a lot to behold But please don't start pretending This world needs who you are (Whoa-oh-oh) Your mind is working on overtime Wondering at all that life can hold Well I know it all goes by so fast You wanna share it with everyone Then why can't you smile in the mirror? You're such a generous soul Your love is never ending Your heart is out of control (Whoa-oh-oh) And it's a lot to behold But please don't start pretending This world needs who you are (Whoa-oh-oh) Turn around and look in the mirror The light you shine is shining back on you It's time you find the time to love yourself You're such a generous soul Your love is never ending Your heart is out of control (Whoa-oh-oh) And it's a lot to behold But please don't start pretending This world needs who you are (Whoa-oh-oh) You're such a generous soul (Generous soul) Your love is never ending Your heart is out of control (Whoa-oh-oh) And it's a lot to behold (Generous soul) But please don't start pretending This world needs who you are (I need who you are) You're such a generous soul (Generous soul) Your love is never ending Your heart is out of control (I need who you are) And it's a lot to behold (Generous soul) But don't you pretending This world needs who you are I need who you are

Maybe it all ends Right here tonight And all that's left will be Me and the starlight Maybe I'll float away from here Without you dear Hold me anyway Slow, dance slow with me Heart to heartbeat Slow, dance slow One more time Sing me a lullaby In my ear now The moon is black tonight And my head is full Make it all fade away Like only you can do Say it'll be okay Slow, dance slow with me Heart to heartbeat Slow, dance slow One more time My hand in yours Your cheek on mine Time's restless sand can fall Around us tonight Slow, dance slow with me Heart to heartbeat Slow, dance slow One more time Slow, dance slow with me Heart to heartbeat Slow, dance slow One more time I dreamed that we were in a ballroom Dressed up tie and gown Tethered and winding, spinning and shining Like angels floating down We danced the night away We danced the night away We danced the night away We danced the night away We danced all time away We danced all time away We danced all time away We danced all time away Slow, dance slow One more time Slow, dance slow with me Heart to heartbeat

(Round and round and round and round And round and round and round and round...) It's not as easy As you might think To watch him go To let him drift away But I won't raise My wonderhorn now To call him back From where he can't return I was backwards in the rain Looking for someone to save When finally I heard their song The sailor's bottle he lifted it high Turn around you daughter, turn around No longer will you roam Come about you daughter, come about Go set your course for home Well I've got notions Of poetry grand Of beauty sad And bittersweet But I can't abide That siren's call I've learned these waters They have not a shore I was backwards in the rain Looking for someone to save When finally I heard their song The sailor's bottle he lifted it high Turn around you daughter, turn around No longer will you roam Come about you daughter, come about Go set your course for home If I could find his way Without losing mine Then maybe I could prove What I'm worth But I am worth More than the compass spinning round and Round and round and round and round And round and round and round and round... Turn around you daughter, turn around No longer will you roam Come about you daughter, come about Go set your course for home Turn around you daughter, turn around No longer will you roam Come about you daughter, come about Go set your course for home Go set your course for home

I woke up today Feeling different, feeling alive Never thought I'd say this But I don't need you in my life It's okay if you wanna go Just don't take your time And don't take what's mine (Oh whoa-oh oh oh oh) It's okay if you need to go Just leave me my mind Leave me my mind I feel your heart's already gone from me Don't tell me it's not Oh-oh, don't tell me it's not Your eyes have never lied to me And they say your love's all dried up It's okay if you wanna go Just don't take your time And don't take what's mine (Oh whoa-oh oh oh oh) It's okay if you need to go Just leave me my mind Leave me my mind I woke up today Feeling different, feeling alive It's okay if you wanna go Just don't take your time And don't take what's mine (Oh whoa-oh oh oh oh) It's okay if you need to go Just leave me my mind Leave me my mind It's okay if you wanna go Just don't take your time And don't take what's mine (Oh whoa-oh oh oh oh) It's okay if you need to go Just leave me my mind Leave me my mind
