What To Do With Daylight

I've been staring at the sky tonight
Marvelling and passing time
Wondering what to do with daylight
Until I can make you mine
You are the one I want, you are the one I want

I've been thinking of changing my mind
It never stays the same for long
But of all the things I know for sure
You're the only certain one
You are the one I want, you are the one I want

I've been counting up all my wrongs
One sorry for each star
See I'd apologise my way to you
If the heavens stretched that far
You are the one I want, you are the one I want

I won't find what I am looking for
If I only see by keeping score
'Cos I know now you are so much more than arithmetic

'Cos if I add, if I subtract
If I give it all, try to take some back
I've forgotten the freedom that comes from the fact
That you are the sum
So you are the one
I want

When the years are showing on my face
And my strongest days are gone
When my heart and flesh depart this place
From a life that sung your song

You'll still be the one I want

You'll still be the one I want

You'll still be the one I want

You'll still be the one I want

Didn't I tell you everything's fine
If there's a good and bad we're somewhere in between
Often I feel like we're all navigating blind
Could we get a change of pace to set the scene

We could stay another day in this confusion
Let it permeate us 'til we can't move on

And while we're waiting we could try saving the world
Or are we storing that up for a rainy day
I'm anticipating the time when it'll be my turn
It could be fun to try
I think that I'll save the world
As a fun afternoon activity

Seventy thousand things to ponder today
Most significant are bottom of the list
Forty five million recipes and ways
To exaggerate and compound the stress

We could stay another day in this apathy
Let it permeate us 'til we're numb through

And while we're waiting we could try saving the world
Or are we storing that up for a rainy day
I'm anticipating the time when it'll be my turn
It could be fun to try
I think that I'll save the world

Oh...

And while we're waiting we could try saving the world
Or are we storing that up for a rainy day
I'm anticipating the time when it'll be my turn
It could be fun to try
I think that I'll save the world

And while we're waiting we could try saving the world
Or are we storing that up for a rainy day
I'm anticipating the time when it'll be my turn
It could be fun to try
I think that I'll save the world

I'm not hanging on your every word
I'm thriving on my self-sufficiency
I'm not listening to the things I've heard
About me and you

People think there must be something to the way
I talk about you every chance I get
But if I think about you night and day
Doesn't mean I'm ready yet

Maybe I am knee-deep in denial
Or maybe I'm just trying to move on
Maybe I should keep away awhile
But if distance is right I'd rather be wrong

'Cause I love the way you're smiling at me
When you know it's true
I'm still in love with you
And I love the way you're really trying
Not to let me see
You're still in love with me too

I am way too proud to verbalize my feelings
And you are way too mean if you just let this brew
It's a complicated hand that you've been dealing
Time to win me over: fold and make your move

Smooth some calm over this situation
I can't get past the way I feel for you
It's the little things that make this worth the effort
It's the small, little, insignificant things you do

That make me love the way you're glancing, hoping
When you know it's true
I'm still in love with you
And I love that I am barely coping
When you let me see
You're still in love with me too

In love, still in love with
In love, still in love with
In love, still in love with you

In love, still in love with
In love, still in love with
In love, still in love with you

In love, still in love with
In love, still in love with
In love, still in love with you

In love, still in love with
In love, still in love with
In love, still in love with you

Still in love
Still in love

I have this sinking feeling
Something's weighing me down
I am completely saturated
The waves are crashing closer
My feet already drowned
Doing the thing I said I hated

They've been swimming in the wrong waters
Now they're pulling me down
But I am clinging to you, never letting go
'Cos I know that you'll lift me out

Have your way here
Keep me afloat 'cos I know I'll sink without you
Take this ocean of pain that is mine
Throw me a lifeline

Wake up feeling convicted
I know something's not right
Re-acquaint my knees with the carpet
I have to get this out
'Cos it's obstructing you and I
Dry up the seas that keep us parted

'Cos they've been swimming in the wrong waters
And now they're pulling me down
But I am clinging to you, never letting go
'Cos I know that you are gonna pull me out

Have your way here
Keep me afloat 'cos I know I'll sink without you
Take this ocean of pain that is mine
Throw me a lifeline

They've been swimming in the wrong waters
And now they're pulling me down
But I am clinging to you, never letting go
'Cos I know, 'cos I know

That you have your way here
Keep me afloat 'cos I know I'll sink without you
Take this ocean of pain that is mine

Have your way here
Keep me afloat 'cos I know I'll sink without you
Take this ocean of pain that is mine
Throw me a lifeline

Don't you say it's too early
Baby I don't wanna waste the day
When we've everything on our side
And nothing in our way

We can do what we wanna
'Cos today the world is ours
Nothing gray, just real time and colour
In which to whittle away the hours

We could speak 'til nothing's left unspoken
We could drive 'til we've run out of road
We could drink 'til we've emptied the ocean
But I'd be happy here
Happy just to hold you

'Til the suns and planets disappear
I could stay in your arms all year
Even if that means infinity through
If being productive is being with you
Then baby I don't want to waste another day

I'll shout aloud what I'm feeling
Let my tongue be still no more
Now I know that it's the real thing
Just try and keep me quiet about it
Oh

'Cos we could stare until we both are blinded
We could fall 'til gravity gets tired
We could lose our love just to re-find it
But I'm just happy here
Happy staying beside you

'Til the suns and planets disappear
I could stay in your arms all year
Even if that means infinity through
If being productive is being with you
Then baby I don't want to waste

'Til the suns and planets disappear
I could stay in your arms all year
Even if that means infinity through
If being productive is being with you
Then baby I don't want to waste another day

The sky opens up over me and you
And you don't seem to mind
That we're soaked through
You kiss me in the rain
I forget what I'm moaning about
And I know I wouldn't be the same without you

I wouldn't be the same without you
I wouldn't be the same without you

I laugh at my own jokes
And what I deem to be clever wit
And you don't seem to mind that I'm so stupid
You kiss me once again, I forget what I'm babbling about
And I know I wouldn't be the same without you

I wouldn't be the same without you
I wouldn't be the same without you

I couldn't replicate your touch or love anyone again this much
But I wouldn't be the same without you

I wouldn't be the same
I wouldn't be the same
I wouldn't be the same without you
Without you
Without you
Without you

I'm having trouble remembering
Where the lines cross your face
Your smile is fading from memory
Won't you hurry back and fill that space again

I'm waiting, watching the water, quietly willing the phone to ring
I suspect this healthy silence
Will continue a few days yet, a few days yet

I miss you, I miss you
I'm over now, I'm through
I miss you

I'm hanging here just reminiscing
About all the things you said to me
Hoping you plan on returning to interrupt my reverie

Cause I miss you, I miss you (baby)
I'm over now, I'm through
I miss you

You're sweet, sweeter than honey tea
You're precious and worth more than gold to me
I know I acted selfishly
Come on home

I'll beg and plead if you need me to
I'm head over heels over feet for you
Gonna have you wed by the end of this tune
Well, I hope

I miss you, I miss you
Don't say we're done
We ain't through

Walk along here, feel you move somewhere in front of me
I can't place you with these eyes for the doubt I can't see

How could someone so beautiful
Feel something for me
Hold me and love me and touch me again
And show me why I believe

That the first time I see your face
Everything else around me will fade to the background
And I'll be struck full by the truth in your gaze
As you work an indelible change in me

All I have and all I am and all I think and do
Can find it's purpose and meaning and life only in you

How could someone so beautiful
Feel anything for me
Won't you hold me and love me and touch me again
And show me why I believe

That the first time I see your face
Everything else around me will fade to the background
And I'll be struck full by the truth in your gaze
As you work an indelible change


For the first time I see your face
Everything else around me will fade to the background
And I'll be struck full by the truth in your gaze
As you work an indelible change in me
An indelible change in me
An indelible change in me

Take my shoulder back now
Your head's too heavy for me
Please don't come around here no more
'Cos I asked you to stop
And you wouldn't

I would give anything to make you better
I would give anything to point you to free
I would give anything to help you realise

I loved you 'til it killed me
So my logic wouldn't hurt you
I know you might blame me anyway
Well I'm sorry, I'm so sorry

I would give anything to make you better
I would give anything to point you to free
I would give anything to help you realise

You're not helping yourself to me

I've tried all the things they've told me to do
Tried to close up the wounds left open by you
And if I seem doubtful, distrusting.....I am
You said you wouldn't do it again
You said you wouldn't do it again

Anything just to try and help you see
You ain't helping yourself by hurting me

I would give anything (time to let you go, time for you to see)
To make you better (You ain't helping yourself by hurting me)

I would give anything (time to let you go)
To make you better (time for you to see, You ain't helping yourself by hurting me)
I would give anything (anything just to)
To point you to free (You ain't helping yourself by hurting me)
And I would give anything (time to let you go)
Anything, to help you (You ain't helping yourself by hurting me)
Do anything for you
To help you realise
You're not helping yourself
You're not helping yourself by hurting me

Middle of nowhere
Finally you can breathe
Nobody knows your name
It's easier

Shut your eyes tightly
Clench your fists 'til they almost bleed
Cautiously, lightly
Gently expose what's underneath

And all you feel now
Is the scarlet in the day
Even if it's real
You can't stay

So there you go
You're gone for good
There you go
You're gone for good

Your mind is swollen
From months of thought without release
They've taken their toll on you
And this weary moment
Of timid and fragile honesty
Is precious and rare and fleeting

And all you feel now
Is the scarlet in the day
And even if it's real
You can't stay

So there you go
You're gone for good
There you go
You're gone for good

There you go
You're gone for good
There you go
You're gone for good

I wanna get your words stuck in my head
I wanna touch your soul with mine
I want to always be, be by you led
Always

I wanna know that you hung the stars in the sky
So on lonely nights I would know your presence
I wanna feel your love under my skin, down through my bones

Your love endures forever
Your love changes me
Your love makes me whole, makes me better
Your love endures

I wanna feel the wind and know that you're near me
And see in the seasons your mystery
I wanna feel your love flow through my veins
Pound in my heart

Your love endures forever
And your love changes me
Your love makes me whole, makes me better

And I want to know how this could be
Yet your love remains a mystery
That's woven all the way
That's woven all the way
That's woven all the way through me

Your love endures forever
And your love changes me
Your love makes me whole, makes me better
Your love endures
