Blinding Lights: Inspired by The Weeknd

“I’ve been tryna call. I’ve been on my own for long enough. Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe.”

I said it time and time again- that I’m looking for more than just a friend, and when I see you it feels like it’s meant to be.

“I look around and Sin City’s cold and empty. No one’s around to judge me.”

Not that I’d blame them if they did, because lately I’ve been feeling every type of jealously. And if we’re never together, then please just let me have that fantasy.

“I can’t see clearly when you’re gone.”

And that’s why right now, my emotions are too strong.

I’m blinded by the lights.”

Because without the thought of you- I won’t be able to make it through the night.

“I’m drowning in the night.”

But I’ll never submit and I’ll fight.

I’m running out of time – ’cause I can see the sun light up the sky.”

I said what you mean to me, but I never told you why.

“I’m just coming back to let you know. I could never say it on the phone. Will never let you go this time.”

Because it’s only a matter of time until I see the rise of the sunshine.

“I said, I’m blinded by the lights.”

Because without the thought of you- I won’t be able to make it through the night.
