Collide (Tweed Horse Sessions)

Open up your box of sunshine
And smile as confetti comes
Raining down on you

You feel a lot like the good guy
Do you know why
Everything's so blue

Well, love is fire and
The coals are barely burning
Cold fills the emptiness
That fills this empty place

I taught you to walk but
Then you ran away from me
And that's not how
It's supposed to be

I, I collide with love
As an elusive state of mind
I know there's something else
It's supposed to be
I, I collide with love
As an elusive state of mind
Something's killing me

Tearful confessions
Have watered down and broken down
A chance for unrequited love
To finally reach its wall

You're waiting
For the axe to fall
But can't you see it
Lying on the ground

I, I collide with love
As an elusive state of mind
I know there's something else
It's supposed to be
I, I collide with love
As an elusive state of mind
Something's killing me

You could be the best one
At cleaning up this mess
You could be the best one
Be the best one
Be the best one

I, I, I collide with love
As an elusive state of mind
I know there's something else
It's supposed to be
I, I collide with love
As an elusive state of mind
Something's killing me

I, I collide with love
As an elusive state of mind
I know there's something else
It's supposed to be
I, I collide with love
As an elusive state of mind
Something's, something's killing
Something's killing me

You could be the best one
At cleaning up this filthy mess
Love is an elusive state of mind

I know there's something else
It's supposed to be
I know there's something else
It's supposed to be
I know there's something else
It's supposed to be

Love is an elusive state of mind
Love is an elusive state of mind
