lyrics

Hail
It's coming down hard now
Better find cover in the blankets and the sheets
Pale
The dark ain't kind now
Why do these shadows always follow me

Remember last night when I was dreaming
You gave me the time of day
You surprised me with your interest
You seduced me such a way
And I awoke in such confusion
I coulda sworn I felt your touch
But I romanticize illusions far too much
Far too much

Fail
The word flies through our ears
It lays a trail
A fire burns our eyes
Oh, is it hell or limbo
We don't even know it
We don't even know it
Let me sleep away Holly till the darkness goes away

Jail
The prison in your mind
This lonely cell
Time to flee away to another land
Call it hell or limbo
You don't even know it
You don't wanna blow it
You just sleep away Holly till the darkness goes away

Sail
You're moving with the wind now
And I don't know when I will see your face
Bail
You're leaving it behind now
I'm begging it'll do us good this way

Remember those times when it was different
When the sunshine and the rain
Fell together through the trees
And all the colors knew our names
You know I'm trying to keep you with me
But you're water in my hands
Falling through my fingers
Disappearing in the sand

Fail
The word flies through our ears
It lays a trail
A fire burns our eyes
Oh, is it hell or limbo
We don't even know it
We don't even know it
Let me sleep away Holly till the darkness goes away

Jail
The prison in your mind
This lonely cell
Time to flee away to another land
Call it hell or limbo
You don't even know it
You pray you don't blow it
You just sleep away Holly till the darkness goes away

Till the darkness goes away
Till the dark is gone
I just close my eyes and pray
Till the darkness goes away
