Lyrics

I have A Beautiful Dream

Written By: The Criminal Kid

So the foreign land brings me back.
I was almost there, the shores were warm.
And I touched the sand, found my way.
Sun was bright, why can't I stay?
You'll have to drag me screaming, I said
I won't just drift, I have a beautiful dream
You'll have to drag me screaming, I said
I won't just give in, I have a beautiful dream.

...And then the past surfaces
It's been so long since I felt like this.
Maybe I need to swim along,
'Cause I have never felt, I have never..
Maybe I need to swim along,
'Cause I have never felt a love like this.

You Are

Written By: The Criminal Kid

I break down these judgments, all that I believe you to be,
Suddenly so much closer, suddenly you're just like me.
I break down these borders drawn between my heart and yours,
We want all the same things, don't we?
We want in the same way.

It's colors colliding to connect like we do,
I can't see anything apart from you.
This freedom coming back to me,
Unpeel the moments, stretching endlessly.

It gets so cold out there, the air is knives against my skin,
But you're so careful with me, you cover me up, you take me in.
Do you want to open up, do you want to open up your heart?
All that matters, all that is, all that ever was, you are, you are, you are.

You and I, we're wide awake, we're sharing this dream.
Speak to you, say "I know just what you mean".
This freedom coming back to me,
This perfect moment stretching endlessly.

It gets so cold without you here, and time just keeps moving us so fast,
Keep trying to grab ghosts with my hands, then I blink and the moment has passed.
Do you want to open up, do you want to open up your heart?
All that matters, all that is, all that ever was, you are, you are, you are.

It Isn't Enough

Written By: The Criminal Kid

In so deep I can't see my own feet.
And don't look back at what I want, you're what I need.
I do try to make this perfect for you.
I try and I try to believe that you fit right, you fit right.

As long as long as long as this goes on
And on and on and on and on
We push it and push it but it doesn't move
We give and we give, there's no more room
And love and love and love, there's so much love
It isn't, it isn't, it isn't, it isn't...

Wrap me up inside of your longing.
I can't stand to see your hurting,
Just say I feel the same.
Looking all over you for what I want,
But I can't find it anywhere.
Just keep looking, keep looking, keep lying.

As long as long as long as this goes on
And on and on and on and on
We push it and push it but it doesn't move
We give and we give, there's no more room
And love and love and love, there's so much love
It isn't, it isn't, it isn't, it isn't
Enough.
