hey, it’s not so bad, look again, look again,
when every color’s sad, but we mend, but we mend,
and you are made of love, nothing less, nothing less..

back when I was young I had a friend, I had a friend,
we would always run, and pretend, and pretend
the world lay in our hands like a gem, like a gem,
I’d like to see my friend again
+++ we see this world with headlights,
+++ driving into black nights,
+++ wishing on the small towns,
+++ with names that I cannot pronounce,
+++ I’m singing under my breath,
+++ grateful for the days left,
+++ the heat turned off to brace me,
+++ so that sleep won’t take me yet..

every broken heart will catch the light, will catch the light
and spread the colors out, if you hold it right, hold it right,
and so, we do our best, it’s enough, it’s enough,
you can leave the rest to love, leave the rest..
+++ we see this world with headlights,
+++ driving into black nights,
+++ wishing on the small towns,
+++ with names that I cannot pronounce,
+++ I’m singing under my breath,
+++ grateful at the day’s end,
+++ the heat turned off to brace me,
+++ so that sleep won’t take me yet..

and so, we do our best, it’s enough, it’s enough,
you can leave the rest to love, leave the rest,
yeah, you can leave the rest to love…
