I feel it coming back again Like rolling thunder chasing the wind I slowly sink into the floor I try to console myself within Dancing in the moonlight Blinded with farsight Is it any wonder Is it any wonder Putting up a good fight Trying to get it all right Is it any wonder Is it any wonder Little sentimental, so Give me time yeah take it slow I know A little sentiment will show I'm a man who doesn't know Oooh I feel it coming back again I feel it knocking down my door I know, I know, I know, I know This time we'll get it right for sure I think it's coming back again I wonder how it's gonna end? Go gently into the good night Or tooth and claw as we expend Dancing in the moonlight Woah there goes my sight Is it any wonder Is it any wonder Thunder and white light Gotta gotta get right Is it any wonder Is it any wonder Little sentimental, so Take your time and take it slow I know A little sentiment will show I'm a man who doesn't know Oooh I feel it coming back again I feel it knocking down my door I know, I know, I know, I know This time we'll get it right for sure I feel it coming back again I feel it coming back for sure I think it's coming back again I wont let it back through the door

Welcome to new king These brand new times You can have anything If you can do the crime So many wonders If you only knew How to break apart How to break it down How to break on through Is started with a feeling In the back of your mind Just a stupid idea You couldn't leave behind Is there any wonder In the day to day Can we find a way to Get through This ordinary life Starlight The morning sunrise Just might Make it to our eyes Is it too late To start this over Just take my hand We'll make it through this ordinary life So you set off with a new head A new set of plans Every moment was a miracle In your hands You danced with the thunder And you saw the light In the supermart In the produce aisle In the middle of the night Yeah you said they were crazy And they might be right But you showed me something That was worth the fight It's the little things that kill you But it's the same that saves And that's what will get us through this Ordinary life Black holes Reservations Too high For consecration We won't wait For evolution Take me hand we'll Make it through this ordinary life Coulomb's law We drift apart True love This god forsaken heart Through it all The worry and the strife Take my hand we'll Make it through this Ordinary life A failsafe A new direction Finding The true perfection A moment shared Natural selection Take my hand we'll Make it through this Ordinary life

Late night Talk about Taking out ourselves Taking over Fortunate Take your time Thicker than your skin Bring it closer Alright Slower now Feel it in our cells Taking over Neon light Hotel No one has to know Bring it closer Let's make a mistake Until the morning breaks This exposure We made our amends From each side of the bed Composure Late night Talk about Taking out ourselves Taking over Falling light Take your time Bring it over here Composure

You ever had a thought So sure it's new Come to find out a thousand people already knew Well you're not alone It could happen to anyone Mama always said I had a heart of gold And I believed her, always did as I was told Wonder what she'd think If she knew I stole this melody Taken by surprise Dropping this disguise Saying my goodbyes to wonderful Everybody get up Yeah come and put me down If I can't be at the top Doesn't mean I'm gonna stop Gonna find my place in the middle Everybody what's up Is this life beating you down If you feel you're gonna jump Hey let's go fuck it up For the top Come fight with me for the middle Was a gifted kid Thought I knew my place Until the world wen and thew it all back in my face Now I gotta laugh It could happen to anyone What's a dream to do When a kid wakes up Half-full or empty 40 years it's the same old cup And it cuts deep But I found a remedy Taken by surprise Time to improvise Saying my goodbyes to wonderful Everybody get up Yeah come and put me down If I can't be at the top Doesn't mean I'm gonna stop Gonna find my place in the middle Everybody what's up Is this life beating you down If you feel you're gonna jump Hey let's go fuck it up For the top Come fight with me for the middle Yeah let's hear 3 cheers for the middle

Well the earth It turns And hell It burns At least that's what they say, on the road Well the sky Was blue The day that I met you And one day the sun will explode So hold on to what feels true Don't let them get to you I dont need a minute Gonna need a whole lifetime Uh-huh Well the grass Is green So keep your conscience clean It's only you and you know what to do And the birds Will sing Because they don't care what it means And one day all of this will be dust It won't always feel right And the days always turn to night I dont need a minute Gonna need a whole lifetime Uh-huh And the earth And the gound And the way It comes around And the grass And the sky And the tears In your eye And the sun And the moon And the past Too soon And the love And the years And the loss And the fears

When the lights Start to fade And we have clean up all this mess we made When the night Comes too soon On the ones we love, the ones we always knew Can you not Be that way When I need you close to me Right now Can you please Not pull away We've never seen a winter Like this I'll be your faded tattoo I'll be your morning after I'll be the lamp light All those years of love and laughter You'll be the ship That sails at dawn Starting a brand new chapter And together We will find a way through the dark She mostly sleeps now Through the day But she still laughs and says that she's ok And on the phone She's still the same You can almost pretend nothing ever changed And you know That she doesn't Really want you to see her This way So hear her voice And pretend That everything is ok I'll be your faded tattoo I'll be your morning after I'll be the lamp light All those years of love and laughter You'll be the ship That sails at dawn Starting a brand new chapter And together We will find a way through the dark
