Neon Deserts

I breathe fire and I eat glass
I for­get what sur­rounds me
til the lights are turned on
I take what­ever I can find
and who­ever wants to go

will you hold me tight,
I’ll do any­thing, I’ll do any­thing for you
please, please make me feel
dear god make it last
you take every­thing, I take every­thing
we both know all things must pass

and in the end
I am one of a mil­lion
oh these highs while we all stand in line
we can scent
this great desert within you
well, show me yours and I show you mine

I fill my eyes with sand
my limbs twitch in the lime­light
til the final cur­tain falls
I take what­ever I can find
and who­ever wants to go

will you hold me tight
I’ll do any­thing, I’ll do any­thing
at least — we are not alone tonight
look around, do you see
all the other girls, all the other guys
we both know we are all the same

and in the end
we always choose wisely
so we can for­get just for a lit­tle while
we can feel it
there are these deserts within us
few hearts were lost on their burn­ing sand
