In a Hallmark Life

Did you know every night your words would light up my eyes
And the gray of my day would flip to color and come alive
In your presence, I’d yearn for time to move slower
Two-minute hugs told me I’m not a loner
I’ve never felt this confident of who I am
It’s because you made me feel like I’m beyond this land
I hope you know my honest dream
Is that wherever you are you’re seen
Because your soul is magnificent
And the world is lucky to have you in it

[chorus]
Every moment of our friendship helped me blossom like a garden of roses
But then I let myself get too close and now I broke us, we’re only ghosts
My desire confused your mind
Your rejection cut me inside
Oh why did I have to ruin this thing that meant so much to my life

Meant so much to my life

Could you tell when I smiled that you pierced me with happiness
All the words in this song remind me of what I miss
Passionate rambles of silly topics
Your pictures of the dog and gold sunrise magic
A random check-in during the day
Because after a sad night, you'd make sure I'm okay
Knowing you was pure joy
A section of my heart is now void
Thank you was never enough
I hope someday I relearn your touch

[chorus]
Every moment of our friendship helped me blossom like a garden of roses
But then I let myself get too close and now I broke us, we’re only ghosts
My desire confused your mind
Your rejection cut me inside
Oh why did I have to ruin this thing that meant so much to my life

[bridge]
Do you ever think of me?
Do you think about the times we created peace?
These memories will never cease
They’re cemented in my mind, now a part of me
If I could change one thing
I’d sacrifice my feelings, take them out of the ring
And keep you in my life
Oh it’d be worth setting all aside

[chorus]
Every moment of our friendship helped me blossom like a garden of roses
But then I let myself get too close and now I broke us, we’re only ghosts
My desire confused your mind
Your rejection cut me inside
Oh why did I have to ruin this thing that meant so much to my life

Ghosts

Looking back in time
I hate all I couldn’t stand up for
Decided my fate by all of those around me, oh

Now is it too late
Tell me life can still be made
All I want I can still obtain
And the pain will someday go away

For I’m tired of all the dreams that haunt me, dusty and locked up tight
I need the open road
A million stars above
To make everything alright
The journey swallowed me whole and spit me out, lost and bitter cold
The love of friends around me is the only thing keeping me whole

Now is it too late
Tell me life can still be made
All I want I can still obtain
And the pain will someday go away

Take it now
One day at a time
One day I’ll be fine
Convince my mind
Finding love in my growth is the balance against all that burned my soul
Take it now
One breath at a time
Released in a sigh
The hurt inside
All I want is to feel at home, to feel peace when I’m old

Oh is it too late
Please tell me life can still be made
That all I want I can still obtain
That the pain will someday go away

Please tell me
Life wasn’t over yesterday
All I want I can still obtain
Someday I’ll be okay
Someday I’ll be okay

Is It Too Late

Trauma emerges in the morning, hides in your dreams at night
If you ask how I'm doing, oh I'm never alright
The street most empty is the street I take
For I'm on my way to no one, on my way to fate

In a different time, another place
Maybe my head wouldn't need an escape

[chorus]
I've got the sunshine blues
It happens when the bright spot blinds you
Can't even choose
Death avalanche behind you
All I know, all I know, all I know
Is the trick mirror caught me
Here I go, here I go, here I go
Where? In search of home

Right now, I'm drifting on
The world a blur phenomenon
All I learned was one big con
Oh hey, where has my heart gone?

[chorus]
I've got the sunshine blues
It happens when the bright spot blinds you
Can't even choose
Death avalanche behind you
All I know, all I know, all I know
Is the trick mirror caught me
Here I go, here I go, here I go
Where? In search of home

Home was pain but home is also growth
Home is that moment you connect with another soul
Trauma may stay but you can be okay
Home is the inner peace that you make

[chorus]
I've got the sunshine blues
It happens when the bright spot blinds you
Can't even choose
Death avalanche behind you
All I know, all I know, all I know
Is the trick mirror caught me
Here I go, here I go, here I go
Where? In search of home

Sunshine Blues

It's how he checks in when my tears aren't shy
Green-speckled eyes conveying comfort to mine
Being the strength that I need when buckled to my knees
He's everything to me

It's her words when I'm a triggered mess
Authentic love felt across a grand distance
Support that’s sincere and no judgment when I'm real
She'll be forever my top-tier

Those people
You know the ones I'm talking about
Those people
Who care when you're crumbling down
They are the ones you want if you’re in a state of fragile mind
Whose love seeps through your barrier every time they’re by your side
Don't let them go
Don't isolate and hide
For those are the people who matter most in life

A rainstorm has inked the sky, but it’s okay
It’s their presence bringing the light, anyway
From my cabin up north, you’ll hear echoing forth our laughter, not pain
Made of Eastern White Pine, there’s comfort inside
And a connection that's here to stay
Oh our connection is everything

Those people
You know the ones I'm talking about
Those people
Who care when you're crumbling down
They are the ones you want if you’re in a state of fragile mind
Whose love seeps through your barrier every time they’re by your side
Don't let them go
Don't isolate and hide
For those are the people who matter most in life

Those people
You know the ones I'm talking about
Those people
Who light you up inside and out
They are the ones worth all your energy and priceless time
Don’t ever forget they matter most in life
For those are the people who matter most in life

Those People

When you're young
When you're young you believe everything
Stories told of all the kings and queens
And white picket-fenced yards
When you're young
A perfect match is expectation
House, kids, and jubilation
But darling, you better watch out

[pre-chorus]
Oh oh, did you know?
Did you know the castle's made of faux stone?
Every night there’s weeping and silent screaming but no healing
Oh no, oh no

[chorus]
The fairy tale is just a tale
A lie we tell
Pretend all ends well
It's a miracle if life doesn't hurt
Expectations only make things worse for all

When you're new
When you're new you trust everyone
The genie, witch, and fairy godmother
And friend who says you'll go far
When you're new
People wear a mask to hide themselves
Show you only good inside and out
But darling, they're a little more dark

[pre-chorus]
Oh oh, did you know?
Did you know the castle's made of faux stone?
The relationship was built on lies and now you find you’re on the side
Oh no, oh no

[chorus]
The fairy tale is just a tale
A lie we tell
Pretend all ends well
It's a miracle if life doesn't hurt
Expectations only make things worse for all

[bridge]
Can’t we be real?
Life is fierce enough without the fake
Authenticity aligns the hate
I’ll be okay but was about to break down, down, down
Connection saved my fate
Healed the lies diseased inside my brain
Revealed that life can still be great if you communicate
And you understand

[chorus]
The fairy tale is just a tale
A lie we tell
Pretend all ends well
It's a miracle if life doesn't hurt
Expectations only make things worse for all
