Lyrics

Symphonies

Written By: Jared Scharff

How long have I been awake
I can't recall a single day that I wasn't dreaming

This must be a wakeful state
cause' I can barely tolerate the sound of you speaking

"Wind him up and watch him go," has always been your favorite quote and I'm Just laughing

If laughter is a tragedy, I mourn the loss you're suffering but I just can't keep quiet

I can't wait to say this

You and Me, we march in different Symphonies and I won't come around, won't turn it down for you

Now you have mistaken me for I'v become the enemy and my hands are on fire

Words that roll off of you're tongue have always been completely dumb and I'm just baffled

I can't wait to say this

You and Me, we march in different symphonies and I won't come around, won't turn it down for you.

Stereo

Written By: Jared Scharff

Where is the detail in the photograph that i am holding?
The colors are bleeding and crashing in to one another
The film is aging, the picture's almost lost and totally fading
I keep it in my grip to remind me of a time in my life

Can we go, go back to Stereo
Can we go, go back to Stereo
We've all become so numb and monatone
Can we go, Go back to Stereo

Where is the sunlight that creeps in my room when I am sleeping
The window is open and it's about sunlight, but the sun must be sleeping
All jokes aside, I'm dull black and white

Can we go, go back to Stereo
Can we go, go back to Stereo
We've all become so numb and monatone
Can we go, Go back to Stereo

Bedroom Eyes

Written By: Jared Scharff

Walk down this winding road
It's black as night and a story unfolds
A young boy of seventeen
the world was just warming up for me
And I thought everything
was sizing up to be a feast
And now I'm ready for this
you changed my life with the touch of your lips

You will be my everything
My one true love and beyond
I will tell you endlessly
I'm better off then before

Some times, real late at night
you wander in with bedroom eyes
We fade into the moonlight
we toss and turn till the sun shines

You will be my everything
My one true love and beyond
I will tell you endlessly
I'm better off then before

Every time when your heart's next to mine and it beats like a drum in the night
I'm surrounded, just like an island, land locked love tonight
