I left the door wide open
Still you come crashing in
The words that are never spoken
Of when to let go and where to begin

I tend to be more closed in
Keep all my thoughts inside
You make me feel less broken
So why don't we get lost tonight?

There is nowhere I would rather be.
There is nowhere I would rather be.
