I waited and I waited
Until everything was faded
And I waited and I waited for you
The lights were getting dimmer
And my chances getting slimmer
I was feeling like a moth to a fuse
Now all my hearts are beating
From this fleeting and depleting light
that I can’t help but fly myself into
I’m blinded by the whiteness
And my chest is feeling tightness
As I waited and I waited for you

Bring it back
Take it back

As my eyes get wider
And the world gets small (HEY)
I think about how the moth
Don’t know nothing at all (HEY)
All it knows is what is bright
As its eyes get wide (HEY)
And there’s never a stop sign
Between the moth and the light

And now I’m up here singing
And my ears are fucking ringing
And my fingers are worn down to the bone
I’m telling all these people
How you left me at the steeple
As I waited for you to come home
But now I’m so well off, in fact
Before I have a heart attack
I wanna get this off of my chest
I think that life is better
If I never send your letter
So that maybe we can give this a rest

Take me away
Fly me away
There’s no place for me in the light
