Sara Bareilles – Bright Lights and Cityscapes

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 9:48 am by LynxLee

Sometimes it takes the hard times to really define you – to reveal the inner you. I’ve gone through a post I’ve made back in 2007 and I think to myself, “Wow, what a dumbass”. The thing is, I really felt that way back then and that was my outlet.. THIS was my outlet. I had a girlfriend that was younger, aggressive and well, wild back then – I honestly did not know what to expect, but I knew one thing.. it was an experience I wouldn’t forget. I knew I never wanted to be like that ever again – so I changed. Even more when I became a husband, a father. Sure, I still sway once in a while – but never get out of that awareness into how you are and how you are treating others.

Few days ago I fell sick, today – with a bunch of chemicals (medicine) in my body. This type of music is what I completely need. The healing type, the ones that slow down your mind and help slowly heal yourself. I need this to recover, and I’ll give time. Sure, I feel awesome when I’m fully healthy and fit and all – but when I’m down and sick; that’s the time to calm down and reflect and think – heal.

She is bright lights and cityscapes
And white lies and cavalcades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say maybe it’ll last this time
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I’m gonna love you
So right
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Hold my breath and I’ll count to ten
I’m the paper and you’re the pen
You fill me in and you are permanent
And you’ll leave me to dry
I’m the writer and she’s the muse
And the one that you always choose
She will falter and gift her blame
And it starts all over again
Again again again

She is bright lights and cityscapes
And white lies and cavalcades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say maybe it’ll last this time
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I’m gonna love you
So right
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Shield your eyes from the truth at hand
Tell me why it’ll be good again
All those demons are closing in
And I don’t want you to burn
Nevermind what I said before
I don’t want any less anymore
You are carbon and I am flame
I will rise and you will
Remain

For bright lights and cityscapes
And landslides and masquerades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say, “Maybe it’ll last this time”
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
