lyrics

Darker circles
You'd never let me get a night's sleep
From crying, into dangerous dreams I couldn't mend

My seat stayed empty
Cause money never did grow on trees
And all your younger years so quickly
Got swept away

Maybe in the end
You'll understand why I'm this grey
Surely you must know
It was all for you
Maybe in the end
You'll understand why I'm this way
This way

Cause loving you is so high maintenance
And the cost to keep you shining's climbed
Loving you's just so high maintenance
That I can't think about us losing time

To you I've just been turning off
But I'd do it again, every time
If it means you'll smile
If it means you'll smile

Still you test me
Even when we're over oceans and lies
The colours of fear in your eyes
Look just like me

So maybe in the end
You'll understand why I'm this grey
Surely you must know
It was all for you
Maybe in the end
You'll understand why I'm this way
This way

Cause loving you is so high maintenance
And the cost to keep you shining's climbed
Loving you's just so high maintenance
That I can't think about us losing time

To you I've just been turning off
But I'd do it again, every time
If it means you'll smile
To you I've just been turning off
But I'd do it again, every time
If it means you'll smile

You best know I won't be around much longer
And I know we're strangers
You best know I won't be around much longer
And I know we're strangers now

You best know I won't be around much longer, child
And I know we're strangers now
You best know I won't be around much longer, child
But I'll still remember holding you in my arms

But I'll still remember holding you in my arms
