We Are The Movies – Temporary lyrics

I had this dream
And when I woke up I had the whole world staring back at me
I was fast asleep
And the things you said weren't so different from what you really mean
And I thought that by now
That this reflection of me would be lost in my sleep
But I've got this sinking feeling
I should be better than this (I should be better than this)

[Chorus:]
And right now my shadow's running away
And I'm afraid of the things you do and all the things you might say
I'm letting all your lies drag me down to your size
I'm letting all your lies drag me down to your size

All I can say
Is your voice is empty
I'm breaking this stride
And don't think you've tempted me
I've walked on this line
It's bending and breaking
So don't be alarmed
When I'm the only one changing

All your lies drag me down to your size

When you said this was only temporary
When you said I'm thinking it over
I'm counting the pins in these maps on my walls
You're living for today
You're not living at all
When you said this was only temporary
When you said I'm thinking it over again
Counting the pages of places I'll go
You're living for tomorrow
You're not living at all

I had this dream
The world was right in front of me
And all I could see
Were things that I couldn't reach
And I believe the things that you told me
But I don't think you know me
I don't think you know me at all

All your lies drag me down to your size

I had this dream
The world was right in front of me
And all I could see
Were things that I couldn't reach
Cause I believe the things that you told me
Now I don't think you know me
I don't think you know me at all
