Lyrics

Why would I want to fly?
Be on the last red-eye
Talking to your voice, only hearing noise
Oh, it’s not enough
All of the nights I spent
Drowning my discontent
Wasting me away, everything has changed
Now that I’ve found us
And it feels like home
Darling, if you don’t mind
I’ll take your hand tonight
We could just slow down time
Let me adore you
And from the moment I looked
In those dark brown eyes
I can’t remember life
Before you
Why would I want to go?
Now that you’re all I know
Smiling under stars, playing chasing cars
Somethin’ ’bout the art of music in the dark
And it feels like home
Darling, if you don’t mind
I’ll take your hand tonight
We could just slow down time
Let me adore you
And from the moment I looked
In those dark brown eyes
I can’t remember life
Before you
Oh, before you
Ooh-ooh
I bet I was lost and alone
I was barely holding on
To the thought of a moment
Like this
I bet I was lost and alone
I was barely holding on
To the thought of a moment
Like this
I must have been lost and alone
I was barely holding on
To the thought that someone
Like you exists
Darling, if you don’t mind
I’ll take your hand tonight
We could just slow down time
