Bright Eyed Kids EP Lyrics

Running Shoes

Ships are moving out to sea
   And all you’ve got left to be is alone
Strangers move from side to side
   Oh won’t look you in the eye (oh no)

And all you’ve got to do
   Is put on those running shoes
      And go

Hold so fast to the ground
   That you forgot to move around
Your hands start trembling
   Your mind starts wandering
Lovers move from side to side
   Won’t look you in the eye (oh no)

And all you’ve got to do
   Is put on those running shoes
      And go

Oh sweet lullaby
Rock me to sleep tonight
I can’t believe I let you in
And take me to higher ground
Above this broken town
Don’t want to be here
Don’t want to be here

Planes and trains and motor cars
   Will only get you pretty far
But are you listening yeah
   Are you still wandering
Resist the urge to play the game
They’re coming fast
   So you’d better not
Oh oh give into it
   Don’t you give into it

And all you’ve got to do
   Is put on those running shoes
      And go

Oh sweet lullaby
Rock me to sleep tonight
I can’t believe I let you in
And take me to higher ground
Above this broken town
Don’t want to be here
Don’t want to be here

And all you’ve got to do
   Is put on those running shoes
      And…

And all you’ve got to do
   Is put on those running shoes
      And go

Oh sweet lullaby
Rock me to sleep tonight
I can’t believe I let you in
And take me to higher ground
Above this broken town
Don’t want to be here
Don’t want to be here

Victimless

I hear they’re moving you away
   To the other side of town
You’ve been screaming on your soap box
   But they aren’t coming ‘round

And oh they talk like you can’t hear them
Cast aside your broken pieces
Just another of the victimless

State your case
   Walk away
      You’re not welcomed here
Break your mind
   Toward the kindness
      That makes it clear
That makes it clear (yeah)

Pick your face up off the floor
Take the weight up off your chest
Snakes will gather in the grass
   And try to eat from what is left

And oh they talk like you can’t hear them
Cast aside your broken pieces
Just another of the victimless

State your case
   Walk away
      You’re not welcomed here
Break your mind
   Toward the kindness
      That makes it clear
That makes it clear

We’ve been down this road before (victimless)
We remember yeah shout for more (victimless)

(victimless) Just another of the victimless
(victimless) Just another of the victimless
(victimless)

Stars and tides

Spare me the moments
Don’t waste my time
Don’t give me reasons
   Or say, “I’ve tried”
This river’s burning
   With old mistakes
I’m treading water
You’re losing face

So color me gold tonight
I’ll be your star if you’ll be the tide
Tragedy that ends tonight
   Won’t be your last goodbye

Spare me the moments
Don’t waste my time
Don’t give me reasons
   Or say, “I’ve tried”
This river’s burning
   With old mistakes
I’m treading water
You’re losing face

So color me gold tonight
I’ll be your star if you’ll be the tide
Tragedy that ends tonight
   Won’t be your last goodbye

So color me gold tonight
I’ll be your star if you’ll be the tide
Tragedy that ends tonight
   Won’t be your last goodbye

(Ooh)

So color me gold tonight
I’ll be your star if you’ll be the tide
Tragedy that ends tonight
   Won’t be our last goodbye

Forget the Beat

Forget the Beat

Falling in love again
How could this happen
   We were such good friends
Making mistakes again
   To end this addiction
I think you’re faking it

Dance to the rhythm
Dance to the beat
Something’s happened, happening
We don’t know how
Sing to the rhythm
Sing to the beat
Something’s happened, happening
We don’t know how
   We don’t know how

Rushing back in tonight
When everything’s working
   I’m always looking for a fight
Guess I can’t read your mind
   From all of the chaos
   All of the hell I’ve brought to you tonight

Dance to the rhythm
Dance to the beat
Something’s happened, happening
We don’t know how
Sing to the rhythm
Sing to the beat
Something’s happened, happening
We don’t know how
   We don’t know how

We forget the beat
   And sing along
      To our own sound
We forget the beat
   And sing along
      To our own sound
We forget the beat
   And sing along
      To our own sound
We forget the beat
   And sing along
      To our own sound
We forget the beat
   And sing along
      To our own sound
We forget the beat
   And sing along
      To our own sound
We forget the beat
   And sing along
      To our own sound
We forget the beat
   And sing along
      To our own sound

Bright Eyed Kids

Take it from me
   You don’t want to be here
Don’t get caught up in this
Cause I’ve got a crazy idea of how it is
I never could be one of those bright eyed kids

You say broken
   And I know your kind
I’ve been a failure
   And I’ve lost my mind
I kept this crazy idea of how it is
I never could be one of those bright eyed kids

Walk this lonely road
You’re looking down on me
   From your high hopes
You’ve got this crazy idea of how it is
Never could be one of those bright eyed kids

Now tell me something
   That I haven’t heard
      Or maybe they’ll show you
They’ve got this crazy idea of how it is
Never could be one of those bright eyed kids

Never could be…
Don’t have to be one of those bright eyed kids

Ghosts On A Line

Keep the company of ghost
   Cause you never had friend
Always doing what you’re told
   That’s how the story ends

Stuck inside your mind
   Cause thinking all the time
Drinking all the wine
   Ghosts upon a line (singing)

Let them hear you say your name

Here lies the night
   Your alibi
Ghosts on a line
   Collide, collide

Kept it to yourself
   Oh you take it to your grave
And when you become a ghost
   The curse of what you didn’t say

Let them here you say your name

Here lies the night
   Your alibi
Ghosts on a line
   Collide, collide
      (yeah)

The Untouchables

Sitting up late at night
   Waiting for a sign
   With fifty million lights
   Staring you in the eyes
You’re already sore
   At least that’s what you told her

You told her
You told her

Think that you’re all alone
   Say it out loud when she’s home
   She’s staring you in the eyes
But you wouldn’t know
   At least that’s what you told her

You told her
You told her

I know that we’ve been gone
You carry on
   You carry on (oh)
Locked up inside my head
Until you pull me out
   You pull me out again

I know that we’ve been gone
You carry on
   You carry on (oh)
Locked up inside my head
Until you pull me out
   You pull me out again

Sitting up late at night
   Waiting for a sign
   With fifty million lights
   Staring you in the eyes
You’re already sore
   At least that’s what you told her

Fool For You

What it is
   That we can’t define
And how it goes
   When we make up our minds

Eyes closed
Softly awaken
Toes curl
You breathe into me

Where you are
   Is where I’m supposed to be
Chasing lines
   And dancing ‘till three

Eyes closed
Softly awaken
Toes curl
You breathe into me
   You breathe into me

And I can see colors
   That burst into chorus
I stutter and fumble an
   Try to play it cool
Cause you are my weakness
   And I am a fool for you

Catastrophe
   Is what you bring to me
Making me speak
   What’s underneath

Eyes closed
Softly awaken
Toes curl
You breathe into me
   You breathe into me

And I can see colors
   That burst into chorus
I stutter and fumble an
   Try to play it cool
Cause you are my weakness
   And I am a fool for you

A fool for you

Eyes closed
Softly awaken
Toes curl

Eyes closed
Softly awaken
Toes curl
You breathe into me
   You breathe into me

You breathe into me
