All I See Lyrics

I thought it was done when I packed my bags and walked into the light
I picked the books I thought I should and closed the door behind
And when I handed back the keys I thought that I was free
No shame, no dirt, no surprises wait for me

I want to believe that where I began is not where Ill always be

But youre all I see and I carry you with me
Youre all I see and I carry you with me

Thought it was safe to assume once I locked up the room
That Id be gone for good but I would be back soon
Memories burned out still Im smelling the fumes
Melodies turned down still Im singing the tunes
Like a witch on a broom I wish I could fly fly away
Disappear into the ether find a hideaway
But the memories invade when I lie awake
Cant hide from yourself is what Im trying to say
And by the way what would I be without my past
Only find the right number when I doubt my math
Avoid blunders only after I recount my last
Setbacks that dont kill me just amount to laughs
Anyway if I could turn back the hands of time
Would I change the events or change my mind
Wouldnt recognise myself without my doubts and fears
Got a feeling all I need is all right here

And youre all I see and I carry you with me
Youre all I see and I carry you with me

Amended verse:

I've been told apples don't fall far from the tree
I hope they're wrong when they're talking about me
all I see are the ruins of a plan gone wrong
all I need is a reason to keep on and stay strong

gotta couple old ghosts that won't leave me alone
even after moving three thousand miles from home
thought I shook 'em when I hit Brooklyn wasn't even looking
but they're putting their mark on everything I do

find a few quiet moments and they creep back through
infiltrated my dreams and held my sleep back too
I don't know where I could go without them following me
it seems everywhere I look they're all I see

Youre all I need
Youre all I need
Youre all I see and I carry you with me
Youre all I see and I carry you with me
