  • Oh doubt in the girl by your side
    She's feeding your pride
    As you go for a ride down the star mile

    Worlds arise as she lets you come in
    A duo begins
    To the Hollywood din of lonely

    [Chorus]
    And all the gold dust in her eyes won't reform into rain
    You had and lost the one thing
    You kept in a safe place
    Remember the face
    Of the girl who had made you her own
    And how you left her alone

    All's well at the base of the hill
    You might need to fill
    A prescription to kill off the silence.

    Look down from your tower on the high
    And take in the night
    Look her right in the eye she'll listen

    [Chorus]

    Life comes to those that are true
    The regular news
    Over playing the blues with the light on

    And if you burn the road that'll lead you back to her in time
    I'll watch you turn to stone
    Can't find the sublime

    She's moving on without you
    The tide breaks
    You watch the stars fade
    They gather you back to their home
    I guess it's better than being alone Writer/s: JOSHUA RYAN RADIN
