I might add more to this, but this is what I have so far


Won't you open your eyes
so I can fall asleep tonight
Can we stop playing pretend?
it's time to take off these disguises again

let's move to a foreign land
where we can both live like kings
chased by our wildest desires
never needing to worry about anything
The life of royalty never seemed so grand
but for you I'd live like a peasent
dying just to exceed your every demand

maybe I think too much much
sometimes I fear not enough
but as long as I lie here awake
I'll watch you, beautiful and lush

Three cheers for disappointment
Three cheers for long lost chances
But I'll drink to optimism
So long as hope waits beyond the horizon
Lets sail away on this sinking ship
into the sunset and never come to
grips with reality, lifes greatest formality
Until we burn away like moths left to a flame

When I dream I fear
once I wake up, you'll no longer be here
and I'll fall straight off these cliffs
into those rocks and pray I miss and land in ocean blue
but will I drown without you?
--------------------------------------
I'm rusty with old spare parts
like a broke down car that barely starts
marooned at the side of the road
with no one left to guide me home
--------------------------------------
[^This part is connected to the part above it, but I might but it continue it as its own separate verse.]


Three cheers for disappointment
Three cheers for long lost chances
But I'll drink to optimism
So long as hope waits beyond the horizon
Lets sail away on this sinking ship
into the sunset and never come to
grips with reality, lifes greatest formality
Until we burn away like moths left to a flame

How about switching some lines from that^ to something like this:

Three cheers for disappointment,
But I'll drink to optimism.
Three cheers for long lost chances,
Because hope waits beyond the horizon.

Not knowing how it actually flows, this may well be a bad suggestion. Good lines, man.
Dude, where's my band?
