I'll never know how it's possible to feel so isolated when surrounded by so many people. – David


Another lonely neon night
Moonlit city, moonlit life
I'm not the only window lit up tonight
If it were dark enough, I'd sleep
If there were light, I might believe
In you, in God, in hope, in love, in me

We all want to feel something
Something that means something

Everything is turning red
There's a pounding in my head
I can't believe that I'm back here again
Quiet, staring at the street
If I look long enough I'll see
Someone who feels the same staring up at me

It used to all make sense
But I've lost what I felt back then
I'm supposed to write a life, but I'm stuck again
You know, it's gonna be so strange
When we look back on these days
And see an empty page

Staring at city lights, another empty city night
