The Optimist

Absolutes
Are nothing more than weary truths
That try to tell us what to do
And when to change our minds

And broken hearts
Are nothing more than false starts
That never should have gone this far
They happen all the time

These days
I say
That everything I need
Is everywhere in everything I see

Fantasy
Is what the world wants to be
No one seems completely free
Living in their skin

Open doors
Are what we all are looking for
The little bird is caged no more
So let the love begin

To change the words we speak
To make the heartbeat heartbeat heartbeat

These days
I say
That everything I need
Is everywhere in everything I see

These days
I know
That everywhere I go
Love will find me
Love will guide me
Home

These days
I say
That everything I need
Is everywhere in everything I see

These days
I know
That everywhere I go
Love will find me
Love will guide me
Home

Love will find me
Love will guide me
Love will find me
Love will guide me

Love will find me
Love will guide me
Home
