lyrics

I’m in the wars - I blame the bad weather
A flood of tears, I drift without a shelter
Reduce my world to things that I have worked for
I lick my wounds and wonder if I can mend the year

Awake
No sleep til I make
Black dreams dissipate

Ooh I crashed down, I burned out along the way
I’m a sunny day with threat of thunder, threat of rain
Ooh I crashed down, I came round to devastate
Anyway I let my skin grow paper thin
And that’s okay

I heal myself with friends and conversation
Some time alone, a sober celebration
I was told I feel things too much
But I know it hurts to be touched

Ooh I crashed down, I burned out along the way
I’m a sunny day with threat of thunder, threat of rain
Ooh I crashed down, I came round to devastate
Anyway I let my skin grow paper thin
And that’s okay

Cos I see stars
And I small roses (on good days)
All this is ours
Let’s do amazing things with good hearts

Ooh I crashed down, I burned out along the way
I’m a sunny day with threat of thunder, threat of rain
Ooh I crashed down, I came round to devastate
Anyway I let my skin grow paper thin, paper thin

I’m a sunny day with threat of thunder, threat of rain

I’m in the wars, I blame the bad weather
