Lyrics of Damone, "When You Live"

When You Live
(Damone)

all the lost kisses
and runaway tears
can't fix what your good mom and dad
have been saving in pictures
for all of these years
and it's sad...

everything fades to black
yeah

all your selfish friends
play their monologue games
and mock everything that i am.
but i don't let it face me
'cause they're all the same
don't be one of them.



'cause the lights
will go down on your show
and as the scenes roll by...
there's something i wanted to say to you:

[chorus:]
when you live, live with your soul
not with your time.
when you love, love with your heart.
not with your mind.
when you want to be something the world can define,
open up your eyes.

accidents happen,
and confidence fails.
but that's not what i'm trying to say.
there this look in your eyes
that's been killing me here
for days...

so as the night drags on,
there's this i've been meaning to say to you:

[chorus]

you can't fake it here
you can't fake it here
you can try all you want
but you'll break in here.
you can laugh it off.
tell your friends i'm soft.
you can cry, you can scream
but i'll brush it off.
you're not listening
you're not listening to
anything i'm trying to say.



[chorus x's 2]

you can't fake it here
open up your eyes
open up your eyes

When the war came (The Decemberists) With all the grain of babylon To cultivate to make us strong And hidden here behind the walls Are shoul...
