BOY WITH A KITE

LOOK INTO MY EYES
WE CAN RUN AWAY
TO AN ISLAND IN THE SUN
JUST THE TWO OF US SOME DAY

DO YOU KNOW HOW YOU’RE MAKING ME FEEL
LIKE A BOY WITH A KITE IN A FIELD
YOU’RE A BIRD UP ABOVE IN THE SKY
YOU’RE A MORNING SUNLIGHT

FLOATING UP INTO THE SKY
I’M LETTING GO OF MY PARACHUTE
I’M KISSING GRAVITY A LAST GOODBYE
I’M ON A STRING IN LOVE WITH YOU

DO YOU KNOW HOW YOU’RE MAKING ME FEEL
(I CAN FEEL YOU, I CAN FEEL YOU)
LIKE A BOY WITH A KITE IN A FIELD
(I WANNA RUN FROM, I WANNA RUN FOR YOU)
YOU’RE A BIRD UP ABOVE IN THE SKY
(REACHING UP TO, I’M REACHING UP TO YOU)
YOU’RE A MORNING SUNLIGHT

IF I COULD FLOAT A MILLION MILES AWAY
I’D TRAVEL LIGHT SPEED JUST TO HEAR YOU SAY
IF YOU WANT TO TAKE ME WITH YOU

DO YOU KNOW HOW YOU’RE MAKING ME FEEL
(DO YOU KNOW HOW YOU MAKE ME FEEL)
LIKE A BOY WITH A KITE IN A FIELD
(LIKE A BOY WITH A KITE, I’LL NEVER LET GO OF THIS FEELING)
YOU’RE A BIRD UP ABOVE IN THE SKY
(UP ABOVE, SO LET’S FLY AWAY TOGETHER)
YOU’RE A MORNING SUNLIGHT


OLD MAN JONES

OLD MAN JONES WAS STANDING ON THE CORNER
SIPPING HIS COFFEE ON SUNDAY
AS I DROVE BY HE WAVED GOOD MORNING
A HEART OF GOLD I WOULD SAY
HE LOST HIS WIFE TO CANCER
HE NEVER FELL IN LOVE AGAIN

OLD MAN JONES WAS BRINGING ME THE PAPER
TALKING ABOUT OLD L.A.
HE HAD A JOB BUILDING HIS FUTURE
BACK WHEN HE WAS MY AGE
HE FOUGHT ACROSS THE OCEAN
HE NEVER SAW HIS FRIENDS AGAIN, HIS FRIENDS AGAIN

TELL ANOTHER STORY
ABOUT ANOTHER TIME YOU HAD TO ROLL THE DICE
TELL ANOTHER STORY
ABOUT ANOTHER TIME YOU HAD TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE
TELL ANOTHER STORY
ABOUT ANOTHER TIME YOU HAD TO ROLL THE DICE
YOU HAD TO ROLL THE DICE

OLD MAN JONES FELL DOWN IN THE GARDEN
HE KILLED A FLOWER ON THAT DAY
I ASKED THE DOCTOR IF JONES WAS ANY BETTER
HE TOLD ME JONES FLEW AWAY
HE LIVED INTO HIS NINETIES
HE LEFT A LETTER IN MY NAME, IN MY NAME

HE WROTE A FINAL STORY
ABOUT ANOTHER TIME HE HAD TO ROLL THE DICE
HE WROTE A FINAL STORY
PAGES FULL OF LOVE PAGES FULL OF LIFE
A NEVER-ENDING STORY
EVERY TIME I READ IT'LL SET ME FREE, IT'LL SET ME FREE


SWEETER

I DON'T WANNA WAKE UP WITHOUT YOU BY MY SIDE
I DON'T WANNA FALL ASLEEP UNTIL YOU SAY GOODNIGHT
FROM THE SECOND I SAW YOU I WAS HOOKED ON THIS
WHEN YOU TOLD ME THAT YOU LOVED ME THAT WAS OUR FIRST KISS

I JUST WANNA HOLD YOU UNTIL THE END OF TIME
CAUSE NOTHING COULD BE SWEETER WHEN ALL THE STARS ALIGNED
FROM THE MOMENT THAT IT HAPPENED LOOKING IN YOUR EYES
WE BECAME A REVOLUTION BURSTING FROM INSIDE

YOU OPENED UP MY HIDDEN HEART
YOU SHOWED ME LOVE WAS NOT THAT FAR
I GIVE TO YOU MY EVERYTHING
THE ONE WHO TAKES ME INTO SPRING, WOAH

I JUST WANNA TELL YOU THAT I LOVE YOU
I JUST WANNA TELL YOU THAT I DO
I JUST WANNA TELL YOU THAT I LOVE YOU
I JUST WANNA TELL YOU THAT I DO

I DON'T WANNA WAKE UP WITHOUT YOU BY MY SIDE
I DON'T WANNA FALL ASLEEP UNTIL YOU SAY GOODNIGHT

YOU OPENED UP MY HIDDEN HEART
YOU SHOWED ME LOVE WAS NOT THAT FAR
I GIVE TO YOU MY EVERYTHING
THE ONE WHO TAKES ME INTO SPRING, WOAH


CONSTELLATIONS

BROKEN HEARTED DREAMERS IN THE GRASS HOLDING HER TIGHT
WATCHING AS THE STARS MOVE AND SUMMERS PASS UNDER MOONLIGHT
CANDLE BY THE OAK TREE WE USE TO CLIMB WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER
COUNTING CONSTELLATIONS ALL THE LINES AND DOTS CONNECTING
WE'RE HIGH ABOVE THE WORLD
JUST A BOY IN LOVE WITH A GIRL

CONSTELLATIONS

A DISAPPOINTING FUTURE WE WOULD HAVE GROWING TOO OLD
ALL THE MONUMENTAL BATTLES OF THE PAST WHEN I WAS TOO COLD
WE'RE HIGH ABOVE THE WORLD
JUST A BOY IN LOVE WITH A GIRL

YOU MAKE MY HEART SKIP A BEAT EVERY TIME THAT YOU LOOK AT ME
WHEN I HELD YOU MY ONE OF A KIND, I TOOK YOU FROM THE SEA
WHEN I KISSED YOU EVERYTHING CHANGED YOU'RE MY NOVACAINE
JUST TO KNOW YOU FEEL IT THE SAME WE CAN FLY AWAY

WE'RE HIGH ABOVE THE WORLD
JUST A BOY IN LOVE WITH A GIRL

YOU MAKE MY HEART SKIP A BEAT EVERY TIME THAT YOU LOOK AT ME
WHEN I HELD YOU MY ONE OF A KIND, I TOOK YOU FROM THE SEA
WHEN I KISSED YOU EVERYTHING CHANGED YOU'RE MY NOVACAINE
JUST TO KNOW YOU FEEL IT THE SAME WE CAN FLY AWAY

WE'RE HIGH ABOVE THE WORLD
JUST A BOY IN LOVE WITH A GIRL


A MILLION YEARS

I NEVER WANNA GET TOO OLD
I WANNA LIVE A MILLION YEARS
NOW THAT I'VE FOUND YOU HERE

I DON'T WANNA WALK ALONE
I WANNA TAKE AWAY THE FEAR
THAT I COULD LOSE YOU DEAR

IF YOU SHOULD FALL AWAY
I WON'T
NOTHING IS A MISTAKE
I KNOW

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET
DANCING TO THE BEAT OF BLUE NEON LIGHTS
YOU'RE MY SONG TONIGHT
I CAN FEEL THE CANNON BALL
FIRE MELTING BOTH OUR HEARTS INTO GOLD
YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL

IF YOU SHOULD FALL AWAY, I WON'T
NOTHING IS A MISTAKE, I KNOW
IF GRAVITY OF THE MOON TAKES ME
I'LL NEVER LET GO OF YOU, SEE

I FEEL THE BURNING INSIDE LIKE A RISING PHOENIX UNDERNEATH THE SUN
I FEEL THE BURNING INSIDE I'M A SPARK TO A BULLET FROM A STEADY GUN
I FEEL THE BURNING INSIDE YOU'RE THE OXYGEN UNDERNEATH THE COALS
I FEEL THE BURNING INSIDE I'M A RIVER OF RED FROM A VOLCANO

IF YOU SHOULD FALL AWAY, I WON'T
NOTHING IS A MISTAKE, I KNOW
IF GRAVITY OF THE MOON TAKES ME
I'LL NEVER LET GO OF YOU, SEE
