Lyrics

I don’t wanna be the one to try
Be someone’s else is not my style
There is a missing piece I’m trying to find
I don’t know how a human heal twice

Sleep, I don’t need no sleep
I’m such awake
I just wanna take our fly
High, higher than the birds
Words are only words
Take my hand and go there with me

There’s no hide and seek
I see you you see me
What’s the mystery
Give it up let go
Somewhere in between
Reeling, reeling
You’ve got what I need
Give it up let go

Keep on asking why we’re still divided
I’m hanging on to see if we collide
We don’t need to know the place or time
As long as I am yours and you are mine

Sleep, I don’t need no sleep
Oh, there’s such awake
I just wanna take a flying high
Higher than the birds
Words are only words
Take my hand and go there with me

There’s no hide and seek
I see you you see me
What’s the mystery
Give it up let go
Somewhere in between
Reeling, reeling
You’ve got what I need
Give it up let go

There’s no hide and seek
I see you you see me
What’s the mystery
Give it up let go
Somewhere in between
Reeling, reeling
You’ve got what I need
Give it up let go

Sleep, I don’t need no sleep
I’m such awake
I just wanna take our fly
High, higher than the birds
Words are only words
Take my hand and come with me

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
There’s no hide and seek
I see you you see me
What’s the mystery
Give it up let go
Somewhere in between
Reeling, reeling
You’ve got what I need
Give it up let go
