I'm not gonna waste this
This opportunity's mine
I'm sick of complaining
About a beautiful life

How did we get here?
Did we forget all the things inside?
And how do we stay here?
Do we embrace all the things denied?

I feel so alive tonight
You got me feeling sublime
I want to yell it from the rooftops down
Until it's over, and we're older

For my entertainment
You tell a whimsical lie
To keep me complacent
You knock me down with a smile

How did we get here?
How do we pretend everything's alright?
And how do we stay here?
Do we erase all the fear inside?

I feel so alive tonight
You got me feeling sublime
I want to yell it from the rooftops down
Until it's over, and we're older

Like sugar and cyanide
These worlds are gonna collide
I want to yell it from the rooftops down
Until it's over, and we're older

So take me, but go slow
Let me hide somewhere I know
And let this seed grow
Until we finally call this home
So take me, but go slow
Let me hide somewhere I know
And let this seed grow
Until we finally call this home

If I was to die tonight
Would it tear you apart?
Would you yell it from the rooftops down?
Until it's over, and you're older

I feel so alive tonight
You've got me feeling sublime
I want to yell it from the rooftops down
Until it's over, and we're older
Like sugar and cyanide
Our worlds are meant to collide
I'm gonna yell it from the rooftops down
Until it's over, and we're older

    I don't think he is in love with a actual person. I think he is in love with life. Maybe there is a 'she', but it's not that important who it is. The only thing that counts is the feeling. It can be a good friend as much as a lover. It's a night where you are totally happy, so contempted that you nearly want to die because you know it is never gonna get better after this, it just can't. Anything better would be perfect, what doesn't exist.
