Mayflies 01:00
a book by Matt Haig called How to Stop Time inspired this song. it's about a secret race of people who live for hundreds of years. they call the rest of humanity mayflies, because of their comparatively short lifespan. the more you know! -------------------------------------------------------------- we're the mayflies, buzzing around this town the time may fly but maybe it's all all right i'll running write you poetry for now, about how our lives are running out

whoa oh oh-oh she wants to be a lot of different things oh-oh-oh and maybe she's a genius ahead of the curve and maybe you can see this in her eyes, oh girl i need you like a song in the night when nothing but a song can make it right when all the light has gone and sound is all you want the ache to go back home is strongest when i'm with you i know you feel it too it's all in the way you looked right past the sky whoa whoa oh stared out of the window like the words you didn't know to a song you hadn't heard were haunting you left that coffee shop with the TVs and walked for hours through the streets we talked about who we could be the city didn't see us leave oh, i need you like a song in the night (in the night, oh, in the night) when nothing but a song can make it right when all the light has gone and sound is all you want the ache to go back home is strongest when i'm with you whoa oh oh-oh whoa oh oh-oh whoa oh oh-oh when i'm with you oh, i need you like a song in the night when nothing but a song can make it right when all the light has gone and sound is all you want the ache to go back home is strongest when i'm with you

If I 04:00
if i could tell stories with that wistful type of joy If my songs were strong enough to get through all the noise if the curtains opened and our wishes all came true perhaps i'd find the perfect line, the one you listen for (you know, when you put on a song you really love, but there's really just one line that you're waiting for the whole time, and if you miss it you have to, like, go back and... and listen again) when you're singing along to the cold that's in your bones and when your eyelids are trying to convince you that there's no hope when the marrow collapses and you're left with the unknown my hope is that this song can guide you home so if the world is waiting and forgetting to make sense and if you're watching news reports maybe that's the signal to remember who you are and what you have, and where you'll be, and why you watch the stars i'm sorry, i miss you so much i worry we're gonna lose touch i'll say it and i'll say it again it's gonna be all right in the end when you're singing along to the cold that's in your bones and when your eyelids are trying to convince you that there's no hope when the sparrow collapses and you're left with the unknown my hope is that this song can guide you i hope you know this song's beside you i hope, i hope this song might take you home

light up the dust on my aeroplane window impossible world of tomorrow, whoa-oh-oh my troubles shrink with the fields and the freeways we're so much closer to heaven whoa oh oh oh where can we go whoa oh oh oh you and me both whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh something is given from cities above falling right out of the sky, whoa-oh bright shining like silver and lilting with love falling right into the ocean into the sea what will we be and how will we know whoa-oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh whoa oh oh oh where should we go (where should we go?) whoa oh oh oh i think that you know and if we were free what could we need if we were free who would we be i hear you're here i'm here we're here i hear you're here i'm here we're here i hear you're here i'm here we're here
