These sweet moments fade so fast
Like sugar on your tongue they never last, no
It's been a while since I thought they would
I feel the low after every high
I learned to slow my heartbeat all the way down
But then the notes of the prettiest chord came
It rang out but I couldn't sustain it
I thought I saw what I needed in your eyes

I don't expect you to understand
But I know, I know

It's not the ghost tripping on flames
Putting pen to a page, It's not some newfound fame
I can't win it all, I know
It's not someone you can betray in the late night games
It's not some passing phase
I can't win it all and I'll never be satisfied

They don't hear a word I say
Yet I hear them whispering in the corners anyway
There we were like I always imagined
Empty streets when I took your hand
The lights changing colors over our heads
And we're alright 'cause we got the magic
I've seen how it ends and I refuse to be tragic
It's just a second of giving in

And when they write about it
They won't quite get it right
They'll catch a glimpse of the world we're in
Before we draw the blinds
