In the moonlight
Your face it glows
Like a thousand diamonds
I suppose
And your hair flows like
The ocean breeze
Not a million fights
Could make me hate you
You're invincible
Yeah, It's true
It's in your eyes
Where I find peace

Is it broken?
Can we work it out?
Let's light up the town, scream out loud!
Is it broken?
Can we work it out?
I can see in your eyes
You're ready to break
Don't look away.

So here we are now
In a place where
The sun blends in
With the ocean thin.
So thin, we stand
Across from each other
Together we'll wonder
If we will last these days
If I asked you to stay
Would you tell me
You would be mine?

And time
Is all I ask for
Time
I just need one more day
And time
You've been crying too long
Time
And your teardrops wrote this song
Stay

In the moonlight
Your face it glows

Is it broken?
Can we work it out?
Let's light up the town, scream out loud!
Is it broken?
Can we work it out?
I can see in your eyes
You're ready to break
Don't look away.

    Its about a guy who thinks she is the most beautiful person ever and he doesnt want to let her go. He will do anything to be with her yet feels that she is going to leave him. He is asking if it is completely over or if she can take that risk and give him one more chance to be together

    This song is about a guy who wants to hold on to love, no matter how broken it is, he wants to fixx it. and he knows that she doesn't want to let it go either so he wants to just make everything better by being together, and enjoying every second. He's trying to keep her

    after reading the lyrics, i just felt like crying. I can imagine how painful it is to make someone u love stay but in the end, you cannot do a thing to make him or her stay with you. My emo prince...i've been watching him playing his guitar in the abandon place and everytime he leaves, I wish i can make him stay...but it's painful that i dont exist in his world and so i have no rights to ask him to stay there so that i can watch him like that forever...im crying...it's amazing how someone can write a song for the person he loves...hoping that someday, after hearing his song, that person will comeback to him...it's so...sad...and yet...beautiful...
