Love is defying

I can only say these things to you while you're sleeping. I hear the hum from the wires and the sounds of the morning creep in. I lie awake and pretend you can hear me: 

“In the mystery time of cold and rain our self belief wasn't scarred by the modern itch. There's little here to miss, bring back 1996. We were cloning sheep in the 1990's and we were building telescopes. But my self belief wasn't lost in the modern glitch.” 


Your eyes so wide, your face so aglow it's the face of someone I don't know.


“We are young, we run free, keep our teeth, nice and clean, see our friends, see the sights, feel alright. We wake up, we go out, smoke a fag. Are we like you?”


“I can't be sure, We are strange in our worlds!”


“But we are young, we get by, can't go mad, ain't got time, sleep around, if we like. We're alright! Got some cash, bought some wheels, took it out, 'cross the fields, lost control, hit a wall. But we’re alright!”


“It's easy when you're young  and you still want it so badly.”


“So let's set the world on fire. We can burn brighter than the sun, tonight we are young! Forever young, I want to be forever young!”


“Do you really want to live forever?”


“It's so hard to get old without a cause I don't want to perish like a fading horse. Youth's like diamonds in the sun.”


“What if I was the same then, the same I always was? All these things that you say, you were just always talking about changing. Guess what I am the same man, same that I've always been.  Days pass and turn into weeks and I've been doing just fine. How did it end up like this?”


“Hey! Don't listen to a word I say. Some days I feel like I'm wrong when I am right.”


“Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear. 'Cause though the truth may vary, we used to play outside when we were young and full of life and full of love and our self belief wasn't scarred by the modern itch. Because with one eye on our TV sets and the more I give the less I get and with fairground rides, just to spark a smile,  there's little here to miss, bring back 1996.”


“Oh God, not another fight, I'm always trying to get the details right. I remember when you told me you felt saved. And now here I stand with these blood soaked hands on this sleepless night, that never ends and these songs I sing with these hopes that I cling to desperately wondering are we finally getting to something new?”


“Life goes on, it gets so heavy!” 


“Lend me your hand and we'll conquer them all. But lend me your heart and I'll just let you fall. Lend me your eyes I can change what you see, but your soul you must keep, totally free! Now let me at the truth, which will refresh my broken mind. I will hold on hope and I'll find strength in pain!”


“I can´t promise you that I wont let you down and I cant promise you that I will be the only one around when your hope falls down.”


“But we’re young!” 


“Open flowers in the windy fields of this war-torn world! But hold on to what you believe in the light, when the darkness has robbed you of all your sight. I don't know where, confused about how as well. Just know that these things will never change for us at all.”


“We'll do it all- everything...”


“...on our own.We don't need anyone!”


“Everyone needs a helping hand! I want so much to open your eyes. Get up, get out, get away from these liars. Take my hand, knot your fingers through mine and we'll walk from this dark room for the last time! Every minute from this minute now we can do what we like anywhere! ´Cause tonight we are young!”


“It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this? Baby it's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two? I've wasted my nights.”


“You say it's too late to make it, but is it too late to try!?”


“As I looked around I began to notice that we were nothing like the rest...”


“You're a king and I'm a lionheart. I wrote a song for you, when you're in love 

what can be wrong?”


“Oh who would ever want to be king? Now all we ever seem to do is fight, ´cos you really hurt me.”


“You're holding in your hands the two halves of my heart! Ohh, just to be with you is having the best day of my life! This feeling won't go!”


“I'm so sorry, I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do, about you now. There are many things that I would like to say to you but I don't know how.”


“Let's get this started, we're moving up, but it's been a lot to change but you

will always get what you want. You gonna show the world

that something good can work and it can work for you, and you know that it will! Look at the stars! Look how they shine for you!” 


“There’s a lot of things to do before you die, but I can tell you that you're all I've ever wanted, dear!”
