All of the lights land on you
The rest of the world fades from you
And all of the love I see please please say you feel it too
And all of the noise I hear inside
Restless and loud unspoken and wild
And all that you need to say
To make it all go away
It’s that you feel the same way too

And I know the scariest part is letting go
Cause love is a ghost you can’t control
I promise you the truth can’t hurt us now
So let the words slip out of your mouth

And all of the stairs that land me to you
And all of the hell I have to walk through
But I wouldn’t trade a day for the chance to say my love I’m in love with you


And I know the scariest part is letting go
Cause love is a ghost you can’t control
I promise you the truth can’t hurt us now
So let the words slip out of your mouth

I know that we’re both afraid
We both made the same mistakes
An open heart is an open wound too
And in the wind there’s a heavy choice
Love has a quiet voice
Still remind, now I’m yours too choose

And I know the scariest part is letting go
Let my love be the light that guides you home

And I know the scariest part is letting go
Cause love is a ghost you can’t control
I promise you the truth can’t hurt us now
So let the words slip out of your mouth
