it feels so early but I promised I would bring you to your door.
As we walk, sharing warm alcohol

One hundred million twinkle lights in neon blue.
I'll be the brightest someday!

I like it better when you can't keep warm.
The boy on the blue moon dreams of sun.
Now as the rain falls like shattered pieces of glass from the sky,
And I ask myself, why do I still pray?

I practically begged you, I pretended everything was fine.
I'd rather be dead.
Don't rain on my parade, it's gonna glow in the dark.
Don't ruin a perfect thing, a perfect thing.

you barely started drinking but your beauty never stopped you.
I guess I never should have loved you,

If you were gonna leave this world how could it be without me?
'cause without you there is no me.
Sometimes love dies like a dog.
(Why don't we just let this one take care of itself?)
Don't rain on my parade, it's gonna glow in the dark.
Don't ruin a perfect thing, a perfect thing.
Don't rain on my parade.
