  • Bleed these colors open wide
    Burning blues from butterflies
    (Tonight we, Tonight we fly)
    Flying faster through the night
    Until the orange of morning light
    (Dear black goodbye, Dear black goodbye)

    I know it's hard to make this work
    When you're all alone (Alone)
    And I've been waiting for so long
    To hold you in my arms
    Embrace forever my sweet girl

    Water fills these open eyes
    (Tonight we fly)
    Still flames in valentines
    Won't keep me in her mind
    (Dear black goodbye, Dear black goodbye)
    I know it's hard to make this work
    When you're all alone (Alone)

    And I've been waiting for so long
    To hold you in my arms
    Embrace forever my sweet girl [x2]

    You are the ghost of everything that I'm not
    And I want be [x2]

    Dear black goodbye (Goodbye)
    Don't forget to write
    Your name inside of my life
    And I know it's hard to make this work
    When you're all alone (Alone)

    I've been waiting for so long
    To hold you in my arms
    Embrace forever my sweet girl [x2] Writer/s: Casey Calvert, Eron Bucciarelli-Tieger, James II Woodruff, Matthew Ridenour, Micah Carli
