If the grass grows green,
Let it be always sunny
King Midas put his hands on the throne.
He put his hands on me again,
He told me he could regrow my wings
If only I would let him make me pure
But I don’t let him touch me anymore
Because I can’t stop thinking that I can’t stop thinking
That I gave him power, and I can’t give him anything.
Midas, tell me where I went wrong,
Didn’t I care for you, and wasn’t I who you wanted?
I walk my talk, I keep every promise, I hide my wishful thinking
But maybe the problem is I have no time for conversation,
At least not with a man like you- anyone at all like you.
She confessed to telling you about me, but her face isn’t mine
She asked if I remembered her and I smiled, I told her of course…
See, everywhere I go I see people coming at me, but no. Still-
At the end of the day, the lights go down and I’m alone in my mind.
The more I think about it, it looks like we’re running out of time.
So all this ends now, now, right now, it ends now or never.
You can sometimes try me the way it seems I used to try jewelry
Looking back at two years ago, I’m sorry to you now
I never meant to tease you, and it shocks me I could be so blind
In my dreams, there’s a place where love conquers all
In my dreams, there’s you- face and voice I feel with eyes closed
A face and a voice that I would recognize anywhere, so these days
I don’t trust the ever-changing, ever-constant moon.
Even though the moon is me- begging to be loved
As she makes shores in far-off lands bend and break for her pull
I wish I saw the vibrations when you’re choking on your words
And you pull back, retreating from me looking all misled
You make a mess in my head, I wish I could clean up your head
I’m must be five minutes from a triggered heart attack
And I think you must have gone and made me a maniac
But there’s no reason for you to ever know what you don’t know
And you don’t know how clear my head seemed when
My heart believed you when you swore I’d be the one to fix you
I am not the top running ‘round past dawn,
You’re not the type to admit your wrongs
So check please, let’s move on
I wanted to be loved, do you feel anything at all, Midas answer me
I still see your friends way too much- they talk like everything’s happy,
They drink, talking and laughing like I know you do when you drink,
And, oh my god, sometimes it almost seems they laugh like I used to
Some nights under crescent moons, they fall in love in my backyard
All the while, since you, all I do is cower in the corner
Since you walked out of my life, conversations are way too hard
I went tumbling down, I tried to reach your high
And I let everyone down and I broke down when I collapsed
But I was their darling starlet and I scream too loud when I speak
I should’ve known the truth would really hurt,
Even more than secrets can kill us all if we keep them too long
So, Midas please tell me your truth but stay where you are.
And I will make your grass grow green if you bring back my sin.
