Watch This World Sleep (Acoustic)

from by HSK Theory

lyrics

you're twenty-five and tracing
the lines accenting each eye
over and over with each passing day
speeding through this life
never looking down to remind what's at stake
and pushing up the edge
to break would be to lose sight of the path
left by the others ahead

your mirage left behind
oh see what we'll find

let's walk awhile outside the world
that's weighing down your head
forget the lies and those empty smiles
bring dreams back out of bed
for this moment, let your mind run free
the way it wants to be
oh, tonight lets confide in what's hidden inside
we don't need to speak - just watch this world sleep

capture all this silence
the stillness of this time
the more you leave yourself to breathe
the more you'll realize that instead of directing each move you make
trust life to change and grow
roots don't form a straight line down
they spread out and build strength from below

the city won't know you've left
so as everyone rests

let's walk awhile, outside the world
that's weighing down your head
forget the lies and the empty smiles
bring dreams back out of bed
for this moment, let your mind run free
the way it wants to be
oh, tonight lets confide in what's hidden inside
we don't need to speak - just watch this world sleep
