Diplodocus,

It Used To Be

Recommended Posts

I won't turn on the lights, I don't want to see,

What the shadows hide, from me.

I won't turn back now, silence is so sweet,

Soundtrack to this, my heartbeat.

 

So take a deep breath and count to ten,

Wipe away your fears and smile again.

 

Oh, the tension, does it scare you?

Are there monsters in your dreams?

Are there ghosts in every mirror?

And you're waiting just to see.

Oh, the pressure's overwhelming,

Can we blame it on the rain?

Can we find our motivation,

And be kids again?

 

I was learning how to carry on,

But I forgot what I was doing,

Just a tapping on the window,

I was getting sidetracked and too hopeful.

 

So pick up your torch and walk right on,

Confidence is like a loaded gun.

(It's strong enough.)

 

Oh, the tension, does it scare you?

Are there monsters in your dreams?

Are there ghosts in every mirror?

And you're waiting just to see.

Oh, the pressure's overwhelming,

Can we blame it on the rain?

Can we find our motivation,

And be kids again?

 

This happens every time,

(I wish I was healing,)

A simple movie line.

(Because I'm hating this feeling.)

I'm sick of being no one all the time.

(I wish I was healing because I'm hating this feeling.)

 

Oh the tension, does it thrill you?

Are the monsters part of (the) fun?

Are ghosts just a good game,

When you're missing everyone?

And the pressure's overwhelming,

Can we blame it on the rain?

But it wasn't ever raining,

We're just all liars, all the same.

 

We're just kids who don't know honesty,

We're only learning what we're taught,

And if you ask us what we want,

What we'll say is "Not a lot".

 

And we wish we were healing, because we're hating this feeling.

Vivienne, you are too amazing.

"I won't turn on the lights, I don't want to see,

What the shadows hide, from me."

I love this lyric so, so much.
