The stars light the sky,
And a galaxy of emptiness tonight,
Though I happiest when there's no reason for me to be,
With no-ones expectation to weigh heavy on my heart,
And so much hope it sometimes tear me all apart,
Could you please knock me off my feet for awhile,
Could you please knock me off my feet for awhile.

The stars light a sky,
And a gutter full of broken dreams tonight,
Though I'm not content that's the way it seems to be,
Still I've been fighting all week,
Though I don't know who for,
Hoping someone else, somewhere near knows the score,
Could you please knock me off my feet for awhile,
Could you please knock me off my feet for awhile.

When there's a galaxy of emptiness tonight,
A whole wide galaxy of emptiness tonight,
A whole wide galaxy of emptiness tonight.

Monkey see, monkey do,
I spent my whole life surrounded by people like you,
With all that expectation to weigh heavy on your heart, And
No ideas to later tear it all apart, Won't you please knock
Me off my feet for awhile, Won't you please knock me off my
Feet for awhile.

When there's a galaxy of emptiness tonight,
A whole wide galaxy of emptiness tonight,
A whole wide galaxy of emptiness tonight.

Burn burn burn your soul to find,
Burn burn burn your soul away,
Burn your soul to find,
Your soul to find.
