Red Eye

Album: Magazines or Novels (2014)
  • I lost perspective of who I was, I hit the wall
    I knew that it would take a lot but it took it all
    No you don't come this far to turn around, covered too many miles
    No you don't get this close to breaking down just to close your eyes

    While the world sleeps under my feet tonight
    I'm chasing myself in the sky
    While the world sleeps under my feet tonight
    I'll be up here learning to fly
    When you know that you can't let go
    And your heart already knows
    Sure to hurt but it's worth it to be burned
    'Cause one day you'll get home
    Still it feels like I am always on the red eye

    This time around it's not even about getting paid
    I'm just an addict for the moment when the magic is made
    And when you are who you are who you really are
    It can put you through hell
    Spend a day in the skin that you want to live in
    To see how it feels

    While the world sleeps under my feet tonight
    I'm chasing myself in the sky
    While the world sleeps under my feet tonight
    I'll be up here learning to fly
    When you know that you can't let go
    And your heart already knows
    Sure to hurt but it's worth it to be burned
    'Cause one day you'll get home
    Still it feels like I am always on the red
    It feels like I am always on the red eye

    I'm finding myself these days
    Looking down from a window shade
    I'm counting lies on hours
    Just when I should be counting sheep
    Truth is I can't complain
    I do it over and over again and over again

    While the world sleeps under my feet tonight
    I'm chasing myself in the sky
    While the world sleeps under my feet tonight
    I'll be up here learning to fly

    While the world sleeps under my feet tonight
    I'm chasing myself in the sky
    While the world sleeps under my feet tonight
    I'll be up here learning to fly
    When you know that you can't let go
    And your heart already knows
    Sure to hurt but it's worth it to be burned
    'Cause one day you'll get home
    Still it feels like I am always on the red
    It feels like I am always on the red eye Writer/s: ABRAM DEAN, ANDREW CHARLES GRAMMER, JAMES JOHN ABRAHART JR., JOSHUA PETER KEAR, JOSIAH ROSEN, MASON DAVID LEVY, THOMAS GABRIEL MEREDITH
