lyrics

And she was flawless in her gaze
And just like me she left her ways
Sometimes a lover knows your face
But a stranger might know just the same

She left me wishing I was staying
In that city ever changing
And I’d never sleep
Yeah, that's just like me

So is it typical to see
The living life that couldn't be
And get too close to getting free
Of all the pain that follows me

And is it critical to think
I'm just a ghost inside machine
A mortal thing stuck in the ring
And something else right in between

She asked me what it was I wanted
From this life I've only started
Cause all my efforts leave me haunted
Am I a shell if that's my calling?

And when I told her there was music
She smiled and said she heard it too
But it was world's away we left it
So then began another tune

So is it typical to see
The living life that couldn't be
And get too close to getting free
Of all the pain that follows me

And is it critical to think
I'm just a ghost inside machine
A mortal thing stuck in the ring
And something else right in between

When she kissed me I let go
Of all the things I'd never know
Cause living life right in the present
Means I'd never have resentment

Thinking in my head
I thought I knew the way to love myself
I wish upon a revelation
Where we could be parallel
I’m barely in the moment
And I know it always shows
I know I’m carrying this focus
Like its all I ever feel, I’m asking

So is it typical to see
The living life that couldn't be
And get too close to getting free
Of all the pain that follows me

And is it critical to think
I'm just a ghost inside machine
A mortal thing stuck in the ring
And something else right in between
