Kármán

I had a dream about a place
Where tears and flowers bloom
The birds above, how high they flew
Soaring beyond the blue

One day
I’ll see it too
One day
I’ll be right there with you

Oooooh (x4)
And I know I’ll see again

I had a dream about a place
Where memories and life renew
The stars above, I wished them to
Carry me back to you

One day
I’ll see it too
One day
I’ll be right there with you

I had a dream about a place

Au Revoir, Goodbye

I see it in this light
I’ve had my run
I painted it bright white
It’s finally done

I gave you all I could
I danced for you
Sang all of my songs
Til I couldn’t move

So I’ll say farewell, au revoir, goodbye
It’s been a long and lonely ride
I’m searching for answers too
I won’t find my way, though, back to you
Au revoir, goodbye

We saw the sunrise
Turn to night sand
We cried together
Always hand in hand

I know you’ll be hurting
What else can I do?
I’ve carried for so long
You’ll find something soon

So I’ll say farewell, au revoir, goodbye
It’s been a long and lonely ride
I’m searching for answers too
I won’t find my way, though, back to you
Au revoir, goodbye

It’s so much easier this way
Cuz we need the time, the space to grow

I can’t, I can’t, find my face, find my face
I need, I need to see who I am (again)


Monarch

there you go, go fly away again
you’re lovely even as you leave
have you found what you’ve been searching for?
are you getting what you need?

but if you make your way
back here to me
I promise we would die
and live like we are kings and queens
until the stars burn out
and fade away

time to go, go wander off again
you’re lonely even though you drink
have you found that they are all the same?
are they giving what you need?

why don’t you make your way
come here to me
I promise we would die
and live like we are kings and queens
until the stars burn out and fade away
