Rapid Eye Movement

Album: This Loud Morning (2011)
  • Give me one more quiet night
    Before this loud morning gets it right and does me in
    Does this story have an ending?
    'Cause I'm needing to escape
    And kill the blinding lights of day to try again
    Close my eyes and start descending

    I, I can't seem to find a way back in time
    Every last thought of love we made
    That still keeps me awake
    Still keeps me from everything we had
    And I'm trying to get back
    Trying to get back

    We keep floating towards the floor
    Stuck in this pattern, nevermore of sink or swim
    But the oxygen is proving more than words could ever say
    To put these memories away so this is it
    These rapid eyes will keep on moving
    These rapid eyes will keep on moving

    'Cause I, I can't seem to find a way back in time.
    Every last thought of love we made.
    That still keeps me awake
    Still keeps me from everything we had
    And I'm trying to get back
    And I'm trying to get back

    (And I'm trying to get back)
    (Trying to get back)
    Give me one more quiet
    Before this loud morning gets
    It right and does me in
    Is this story worth forgetting?

    'Cause I, I can't seem to find a way back in time
    Every last thought of love we made
    That still keeps me awake
    Still keeps me from everything we had
    That I'm trying to get back

    Trying to get back
    Trying to get back
    Trying to get back
