lyrics

Afraid of Bliss

One day you'll grow up to be a king
You'll be the light of some girl's eye
Wake up with everything
You'll say you never want to die

And I hope that you remember
All the places you grew up
And I hope that you remember
All the faces who picked you up
When you fell down

There's no hiding from the truth
Your life is a disgrace
You're procrastinating all the time
And you're fed up of this race

I hope that's the last time
I hear you whine today
And I hope that you realise that
You're the one controlling your fate

If I lose it all in the end
Why do I waste my time pretending,
I can't live my life like this?
I think that maybe I'm afraid of bliss

If I could conjure up a master plan
To save you from your plight
You know I'd do anything I can
But this is not my fight

I hope that the penny
Drops for you tonight
And I hope that you realise that
Everyone is on your side

If I lose it all in the end
Why do I waste my time pretending,
I can't live my life like this?
I think that maybe I'm afraid of bliss

One day you'll grow up to be a king
You'll be the light of some girl's eye
Wake up with everything
You'll say you never want to die

And I hope that you remember
All the places you grew up
And I hope that you remember
All the faces who picked you up
When you fell down
When you fell down

If I lose it all in the end
Why do I waste my time pretending,
I can't live my life like this?
I think that maybe I'm afraid of bliss

If I lose it all in the end
Why do I waste my time pretending,
I can't live my life without you?
I think that it's the one thing that I ought to do
