Marigold Trace

i cry myself to sleep, and scream myself awake
ev'ry step is a mistake,
and ev'ry word does not seem right

weekdays I hide inside and stay, away from all the world's hate
weekends I close my eyes and skate
'round the nightmares in my head

refrain: lift the blackness from your face
the light of day shall peirce your eyes
see the beauty in the everlasting skies
the christmas lights on marigold trace
dancing in the pouring rain
this is joy I cant explain
a change of style, a change of pace

oh my oh my

nothin ever felt so
beautiful
wonderful
mysterious and
how I love it now

I've never looked right at the sun: glowing fire and its glory
oh it seems just like a story
that I heard when I was young

I've never seen all that surrounds me, too busy starin' at athe ground
too worried that it's upside down
I wish I could've seen it then

refrain: lift the blackness from your face
the light of day shall peirce your eyes
see the beauty in the everlasting skies
the christmas lights on marigold trace
dancing in the pouring rain
this is joy I cant explain
a change of style, a change of pace

oh my oh my

nothin ever felt so
beautiful
wonderful
mysterious and
how I love it now

this is how I want to live, not walking like I'm in a dream
not my alarmclock as a scream
and I feel so much happier

I'm gonna grin my biggest grin, turning cartwheels in the grass
taking bad things as they pass
this is how I want to live

refrain: lift the blackness from your face
the light of day shall peirce your eyes
see the beauty in the everlasting skies
the christmas lights on marigold trace
dancing in the pouring rain
this is joy I cant explain
a change of style, a change of pace

oh my oh my

nothin ever felt so
beautiful
wonderful
mysterious and
how I love it now

nothin ever felt so good before to me

final refrain:
refrain: lift the blackness from your face
the light of day shall peirce your eyes
see the beauty in the everlasting skies
the christmas lights on marigold trace
dancing in the pouring rain
this is joy I cant explain
a change of style, a change of pace

oh my oh my

nothin ever felt so
beautiful
wonderful
mysterious and
how I love it now

nothin ever felt so good before
and this is how i want to live
this is how I want to live
