Be There



You don't want to go there
Let me lead you by the hand
You don't want to be there
Over sea and onto land
As I look into your eyes
I pay no mind
I found a way to get inside you
I give you peace of mind

I might see you falling
I might see you falling
I might see you falling
Beautiful
This time

I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling
Beautiful
Sometime

You don't want to go there
Let me lead you by the hand
You don't want to be there
Over sea and onto land
As I look into your eyes
I pay no mind
I found a way to get inside you
I give you peace of mind

I might see you falling
I might see you falling
I might see you falling
Beautiful
This time

I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling
Beautiful
Sometime

I might see you falling
I might see you falling
I might see you falling
Beautiful
This time

I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling
Beautiful
Sometime

I might see you falling
I might see you falling
I might see you falling
Beautiful
This time

I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling
Beautiful
Sometime

I don't see you falling
I don't see you falling

Corrupt
A plea for free will
An irresponsible horror show
It has been suggested that this contradictory...
