Lyrics

[Verse 1]

I got a story, it's almost finished

Now all I need is someone to tell it to

Maybe that's you

Our time is borrowed and spent too freely

Every minute I have needs to be made up

But how?

I'm looking for a nice way to say, "I'm out."

I want out

[Verse 2]

I fall asleep with my friends around me

Only place I know, I feel safe

I'm going to call this home

The open road is still miles away

Hey, nothing serious

We still have our fun

Oh, we had it once

[Pre-Chorus]

But windows open and close

That's just how it goes

[Chorus]

Don't it feel like sunshine after all?

The world we love, forever gone

We're only just as happy as everyone else seems to think we are

[Verse 3]

I'm in love with the ordinary

I need a simple space

And rest my head

And everything gets clear

Well I'm a little ashamed for asking

But just a little helps

It gets me straight again

Helps me get over it, over it

[Pre-Chorus]

It might seem like a dream

But it's real to me

[Chorus]

Don't it feel like sunshine after all?

The world we loved, forever gone

We're only just as happy as everyone else seems to think we are

[Verse 4]

You should see the canals are freezing

You should see me high

You should just be here

Be with me here

It doesn't seem there's hope for me

I let you down

But I won't give in now

Not for any amount

[Chorus]

Don't it feel like sunshine after all?

The world we love, forever gone

We're only just as happy as everyone else thinks

Now, don't that feel like sunshine after all?

The world we love, forever gone

We're only just as happy as everyone else seems to think we are
