lyrics for
April 5th

You want love
But it's never deep enough
You want life
But it's never long enough
You want peace
Like it's something you can buy
You want time
But you're content to watch it fly

I'm not afraid
And I refuse to be
I can't fall
There's nothing to stop me

You believe in dreams
In a dream forsaken land
You believe the heart
Is the measure of a man
It's an old love story
And I swear to God it's true
You believe in me
And I believe in you

I'm not afraid
And I refuse to be
I can't fall
There's nothing to stop me

You want imagination
But you cannot pretend
You need air
But you won't even break a window
You want space
For some pretty stars to lend
You want free will
Or something like it that you can bend

I can't think
It's getting hard to do
You can't fail
There's nothing to stop you

It's an old love story
And I swear to God it's true
You believe in me
And I believe in you
