lights inside this dream lyrics – julia stone

there were lights inside this dream,
someone came here,
and turned them out on me.
now it’s dark and i can’t see,
there’s always someone with,
with something they need.
and i give myself away,
and the takers always take,
and they wear my skin
like a cape, and fly around,
nothing to say.
i crawled inside this room,
looking for somewhere
to heal this wounds.
there’s knocking at the door,
there’s always someone
asking for more.
and i give myself away,
and the takers take what they take.
and they wear my skin
like a cape, and fly around,
nothing to say.
i burn myself inside.
i found nowhere else to hide.
but the burning caught their eyes,
and they warm themselves
around this dying fire.
and i give myself away,
and the takers always take,
and i tried to walk away,
but i lost my heart,
and i lost my faith.
