lyrics

we made a splash on the screen but we're just a flash in the pan so come on baby and take my hand and we'll laugh so hard about how we hardly matter to anyone and anyone is welcome to join in, laugh it up laugh it up it's real funny, so funny i forgot how to laugh at it, but i'm laughing now cos i finally remembered how.

we were makin a music so modeled on others so timely til we physically stopped now it lives in the air and its so much happier up there with the birds and the words we no longer say cos we let them just float away from our mouths to the sky and i can't get why but i know that i shouldn't try, i shouldn't try.

the alarms goin off, i kept hittin snooze cos i couldn't bear to leave those dreams that were keepin me layin in bed waiting there for a hope not seen, i didn't care if i slept away my whole life as long as you were there, but you've not been you such a long time. i gotta get up walk around find a way to be wide awake.

there was time when i knew that you'd be the one to let it go and i knew you'd snow me in and i know that the warmth that i loved was impossible and i get falling now. and i know there is nothing left to say about it so say about it what you will and we'll see what we get when we take what we've gotten...blah blah blah.

i'm thinkin about it now cos i finally remembered how.
oh i'm laughin now cos i finally remembered how.
