lyrics

The leaves are falling down,
between my feet on the ground,
I search for love.
The leaves are falling down,
between my feet on the ground,
I search for trust.

I stare into the night,
and I wonder how it would look if you cried.
I gaze into the night,
and I wonder how it would look if I died.

‘Cause I cannot breathe with you on top of me,
and your dry eyes need release.

You’re the boy who cries outside his eyes.
You’re asking me to be kind.
You’re the boy who cries outside his eyes.
Promise me I won’t die,
inside your mind,
inside your mind,
inside your mind,
inside your mind.

So turn off the lights,
and let me linger a bit longer in the night.
Don’t turn on the lights,
let me linger a bit longer in this night.

Oh, let me stay here,
in this peace of mind.
Let me bathe here,
they say love is blind.
But let me stay here,
in this war of mine.
Oh, let me bathe here.
I’m free.

You’re the boy who cries outside his eyes.
You’re asking me to be kind.
You’re the boy who cries outside his eyes.
Promise me I won’t die,
inside your mind, (promise me I won’t die)
inside your mind, (promise me I won’t die)
inside your mind, (promise me I won’t die)
yes inside your mind.

You are the boy who cries, who cries,
who cries, outside his eyes.
