Life Is Looking Up Submit Correct Lyrics

Could this be the day I've waited for
When all my hard work doesn't go ignored?
Maybe she was right, they will realize
I can change the world, open up their eyes

They know I am more than some eager blood
Not some average bones, I believe in love
I just want to prove I deserve this gift
I will change the world, maybe this is it

I can see it now, all the colors smear
Up and down the page but the shapes are there
I will build the lamps in this reverie
Then they'll understand this was meant for me

This is my fate
I can almost hear 'em say

Let the lamps shine, let 'em burn so bright
Open all our eyes, shower us in light
Let the lamps shine, let 'em burn so bright
Set the sky ablaze, fill the night with paint
Smother all the shade, flood it through my blood
Breathe it through my lungs, give us all your love

They know I am more than some eager blood
Not some average bones, I believe in love
I just want to prove I deserve this gift
I will change the world, maybe this is it

I can see it now floating like a dream
Right above my head, perfect symmetry
Lives in harmony, I can see his face
When he sees the lamps I can hear 'em say

Let the lamps shine, let 'em burn so bright
Open all our eyes, shower us in light
Let the lamps shine, let 'em burn so bright
Set the sky ablaze, fill the night with paint
Smother all the shade, flood it through my blood
Breathe it through my lungs, give us all your love

Dream with your eyes closed
Try and pluck the pearls from your bones

All the plans pirouette
Right through my mind become set
The lines become definite
Glowing hues fill this vignette

Tall and proud, the lamps will stand
(Dream with your)
Built from these two very hands
(Eyes closed)

No one will be able to
(Try and pluck the pearls)
Deny my skill nor love for you
(From your bones)

Dream with your eyes closed
Try and pluck the pearls from your bones

Let the lamps shine, open all our eyes
Shower us in light
Let the lamps shine, let 'em burn so bright
Set the sky ablaze, fill the night with paint
Smother all the shade, flood it through my blood
Breathe it through my lungs, give us all your love

You can't change me
You can't hide me

The vision of the world had been realized
But the sculpture of the earth was looked upon by jealous eyes
Ahrima refused to relent, he demanded to be heard
Let my unique deft hands be known, he asserted

But even this brash avowal was met in return by no mouthful
O simply, just smiled
So defeated and galled, Ahrima headed for the darkness
No one seemed to understand, only the shadows would hearken
He sat in peace but on his shoulder, at rest
Perched a dainty brownish spider named Barayas
