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
