lyrics

Better in the Dark

I know the universe is unaffected
by passion burning brighter than the sun
enough to turn your world into ash
while it keeps on turning
no one else feels it burning

why’d you have to go and turn the light on
don’t you know you’re better in the dark
never to reveal all the things you feel
you can’t fail if you refuse to start

I wish all my thoughts remained unspoken
I should try to make myself obscure
I should never open my mouth
it’s time for some closure
this chapter is over
