lyrics

My family has left me, my family is gone
I am stuck on repeat, they are moving on
To the next song, to the next big thing
So excited for what the future brings
But they'll only see what they want to be true
They're fooling themselves, and all I ever wanted to do
Was sleep all day
And dream my life away
Is that okay with you

This house is overflowing with low priorities
And the dust that's started growing is meager company
And I am wondering what happened to your mix CD
And all the people I thought I was gonna be
And where will you turn when you remember you
With your hand on my chest, and all I ever wanted to do
Was sleep all day
And dream my life away
Is that okay with you
'Cause I've tried
And I can't change
I sleep to kill the pain
That I can't make it through awake
Awake, awake, awake

I like well-prepared food
It helps improve my attitude
I like the color blue
It makes me think of you
I like staring at the moon
Staying up late, watching cartoons
I like the color blue
It makes me think of you
It makes me think of you

So I suppose that's how it goes
When you dispose of your old clothes
You've gotta let yourself forget
You've gotta knit a better fit
You've gotta plan the way you stand
You've gotta tweak the way you speak
You've gotta mind time's ruthless grind
You've gotta learn the world's turn
I was a short and lonely quack
A tortoise shell upon my back
I don't know what you saw in me
That made you make me so happy
You were a senseless symbol of
Everything I admire and love
I never will forget those months
Felt like I belonged for once
But then my parents left the state
We met in secret at the gate
Thirteen years you said you'd wait
And I was ready, to the date
But you were someone new
And I could not for my life say who
But all I ever wanted to do

I like the color blue
It makes me think of you
I like the color blue
It makes me think of you
I like the color blue
It makes me think of you
I like the color blue
It makes me think of you
And I like the color gold
It makes me feel old
