I close my eyes and the lights appear I watch them and wish you were here It's only time, time separating us I wonder why as I gather dust And the lights all spin while my life grows thin Paper dolls with the edges burned I think back wondering what I've learned The same mistakes, same safe and narrow path Footprints lead away from the aftermath And the lights all shine, but my life's not mine They shine - suggestions of color fading through shades of grey They shine - cold and indifferent, but with me every day They shine - floating, moving, always so far away They shine I close my eyes and the lights are there Offering different paths if I'd only dare Shadows call as I fall asleep I'd risk it all, but the water's deep Could I learn to swim as the lights go dim?
