Lyrics:

Building my future, I picked my mind apart
Balance and comfort are all I thought I'd want
Something escaped me, something that I'd ignored
Stable perfection just left me feeling bored

Where is the fun in flight if you'll never fall?
I needed you to threaten losing it all

Time ticks so slow for your average 9-5
Never suspecting they're only half alive
Nothing to scare them, and nothing new, unknown
Me, 'till the first time we found ourselves alone

Fire dances in your eyes, it burns in your voice
I feel the wrong in this, but I have no choice
No time to stop before your dress hits the floor
Right from the start I know I'll always want more

Our deferring dawn cannot carry on
'Cause the world I see is separating me

Deception and secrets lie far from solid ground
Right at the brink of everything crumbling down
What we are building, it wasn't meant to last
I've learned a lot from my all too prudent past

Soon all my days reduce to pining for night
Nothing could ever change to make this feel right
Fire dances in your eyes as hot as before
Right from the start I knew I'd always want more

Our deferring dawn cannot carry on
'Cause the secrecy is overwhelming me
Overcoming me

Our deferring dawn cannot carry on
'Cause the world I see is separating me
And the secrecy is overwhelming me
Separating me
Overcoming me
