HOOK - TIFFA

my eyes are open but
all I see is stars
we've been spinning so long
we've forgotten what it is to stop
my eyes are open but
all I see is stars
hey hey hey hey
yeah yeah


VERSE ONE - TIFFA

I recall the day you came to me
and said that I propose we leave
and find our happiness
in simpler things

filled with dreams we rolled up sleeves
and carried everything we thought we'd need
not sure but longing for
what this may bring

you and me and everything
we'd never say but tried to mean
we'd hold on tight threatening
to throw it all away

you'd look for comfort in my eyes
I'd search for answers in your smile
and somehow we survived
to see another day


HOOK - TIFFA

my eyes are open but
all I see is stars
we've been spinning so long
we've forgotten what it is to stop
my eyes are open but
all I see is stars
hey hey hey hey
yeah yeah


VERSE TWO - TIFFA

flying high adrenaline
we rushed around and round again
and turned eyes blind to anything
like reality

but minds that wander free
they more than not act mindlessly
so sure enough the paths we took
lead to calamity

you and me and all the things
said out of spite we didn't mean
the fiery days the lustful nights
the truth that starts to bend

your silence's so deafening
my quick resort to threatening
so soon we had to face
the dawning of the end


HOOK - TIFFA

my eyes are open but
all I see is stars
we've been spinning so long
we've forgotten what it is to stop
my eyes are open but
all I see is stars
hey hey hey hey
yeah yeah


VERSE THREE - ENO

alright alright okay okay
why'd you have to take the fundamentals out the game
'cause the games drive me mental when the fun gets slain
manipulating circumstances so this man's stance is pain

and it's more of the same
we walked happy into winter but not spring more sprain
watching what held us together dissipate like rain
wishing we could soak up all that made us happy again

you were the one my shining sun
but now it's done our course has run
your once warmth burns and blisters my skin
eyes wide open as my head just spins


HOOK - TIFFA

my eyes are open but
all I see is stars
we've been spinning so long
we've forgotten what it is to stop
my eyes are open but
all I see is stars
hey hey hey hey
yeah yeah
